I've looked quite some time now on a variety of compact SLRs when my old full sized DSLR (Nikon D90) usually allowed to remain at home when I was out on an adventure. However, I have always felt somewhat skeptical that you can get out equivalent image quality with these little cameras in comparison with the larger versions. But to make a long story short, I bought anyway Email PL7-ball for a couple of months ago. Partly because I, I heard very positive about Olympus compact PEN cameras, but also because I love E-PL7: s retro design, build quality and the wide range of lenses available. Well, here are my impressions so far: + One of the biggest advantages is understood that the E-PL7 is incredibly smooth and compact, especially if, as I've only used full-size DSLR cameras before. Now the camera follows me everywhere and it is not the least bit annoying to carry around. + The images it churns out is incredibly fine and is usually better than my Nikon D90 got up. The development has moved forward a lot between these two cameras and that is something you notice. To E-PL7: s advantage, it feels more vibrant images, the sharpness is better, but what impressed me most is the crazy fast autofocus. It sits almost always right, and even if lighting conditions are less favorable then the image becomes usually perfect. + This is the first camera I own that has a tilting touch screen. It was not a dealbreaker when I chose the camera, but I must admit that it is sick easily, directly on the screen, choose where the image you want to add focus and the camera immediately after taking the picture (can be set). It's very easy to navigate around the menus also the touches. - To send the pictures wirelessly from the camera via wi-fi is quite troublesome. Getting over the images wirelessly to your computer, not at all (not on my iMac anyway) and I'll transfer them to my phone, I have to start up the Olympus app and then fiddle with verifying the camera. Imagine how easy it would have been if, with a single button push, could not pass on images to your computer / phone without having to authenticate and start up apps. - Menu system is a bit illogical built at certain places in kamerna. There is absolutely no huge problem, but certain functions and settings are trickier to find and modify than should be necessary. All in all, I am thrilled and I will probably never go back to a full system camera again. Thumb up!
