Product Overview

Olympus PEN E-PL9 is an affordable mirrorless camera in the Micro Four Thirds-mount system. Introduced by Olympus in 2018, it comes with a micro four thirds sensor with 16 MP (4608 x 3456) resolution.
The camera has a usable battery life, though a second battery may be a good thing to keep in your camera bag. One should note that the PEN E-PL9 has a 200 base ISO, which is not conducive to getting the cleanest images.
The Olympus PEN E-PL9 comes with 121 autofocus points. Those who intend to use the camera for video work will be glad to find that the camera comes with 3.5 stops of IBIS.
