Olympus PEN F Black (6)

David Thorpe gives the low-down on the new 20-megapixel Olympus PEN-F, with its stylish design and a new creative dial, plus additional monochrome settings, in his Olympus PEN-F video review. 

He discusses the 4 custom modes, the front creative dial and the video recording quality of the camera. He summarises the PEN-F as a "Classic street machine", when used with the right lenses, making it an ideal street camera. He also thinks is has the best handling yet and David Thorpe also tests the continuous AF system. Some negatives mentioned, include the tripod socket position and slightly awkward user controls that could do with improvement.

Don't think of it as an expensive Olympus, think of it as a cheap Leica Grin

If only it was weather sealed, and that front dial could be customisable. I might have been persuaded back to M43!
