The Olympus PEN Lite E-PL5 is the latest Olympus PEN and features the 16 megapixel sensor from the Olympus OM-D E-M5, as well as a tilting touch screen. Manual controls as well as full HD video with stereo sound and quicker continuous shooting make this an appealing camera.
The grip can be removed for a smoother, more compact body, and it also lets you customise the camera as you can choose a number of different coloured grips. The metal bodied camera is available in a number of different colours.
