Product Overview

Olympus PEN-F is a premium ultra-compact mirrorless camera in the Micro Four Thirds-mount system. Introduced by Olympus in 2016, it comes with a micro four thirds sensor with 20 MP resolution and a 2.36 million-dot EVF.
The camera has a poor battery life, and a second or third battery may be needed to get you through the day. The 10.0 fps burst rate serves enthusiasts well enough, though some professionals may find it limiting.
The Olympus PEN-F comes with a fully articulated touch display and 81 autofocus points.
