Olympus E-PL7 arrives with restyled body, flip-down LCD, better stabilization, and in-camera Wi-Fi

In mid-2013, Olympus introduced the E-PL6, a camera that never came to the US market, perhaps because it was such a modest tweak to 2012's E-PL5. Today, the Olympus E-PL7 arrives as a much more comprehensive revamp, although its heart -- a 16.1-megapixel Live MOS image sensor -- is unchanged from the earlier cameras. Our Olympus E-PL7 arrived at our doorstep just a few hours ago and has already began its rigorous lab testing, so be sure to check out our first set of lab sample images! Where the mid-range E-PL5 and E-PL6 were near-identical to the smaller,...

Limited no more: Olympus adds a standard black color for its 12mm f/2.0 Micro Four Thirds lens

    Back in late 2012, when Olympus launched the PEN E-PL5 compact system camera -- a model just replaced by the Olympus E-PL7 this very day -- it also unveiled a new, limited-edition variant of its M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12mm f2.0 prime lens. The new optic was identical to the silver variant first released by the company in mid-2011, but with a black finish that we understand significantly outsells the silver one in the US market. At the time, it was described as a limited-edition variant (with about a $300 price boost), and for at...

Pentax surprises with futuristic new compact K-S1 DSLR

    If you thought most new cameras nowadays are all about being "retro" and taking cues from cameras of yesteryear, take heed: Ricoh is going in a bold new direction with their latest DSLR, the new Pentax K-S1. Sporting a strikingly futuristic design, the K-S1 features a new 20-megapixel APS-C image sensor with a high ISO sensitivity up to 51,200, as well as incorporating features from their flagship K-3, such as the on-demand anti-aliasing filter system with their in-camera Shake Reduction image stabilization system.

Samyang introduces a 50mm f/1.4 ?dream? lens (and a T1.5 cine version)

After teasing the upcoming announcement of a "dream" lens, the Korean optics manufcaturer Samyang, whose products are also sold under the Rokinon and Bower brands in the US, has announced a new 50mm f/1.4 "dream lens" as well as a T1.5 cine counterpart in various mounts.

Self portrait: Olympus PEN E-PL7 First Impressions Review

At first glance the Olympus PEN E-PL7 looks like yet another compact, selfie-friendly mirrorless camera -- but looks can be deceiving. The innards of the camera come largely from the excellent OM-D E-M10, and Olympus touts the E-PL7's autofocus system as its best yet. For all the details on the latest PEN, check out our First Impressions Review.

Olympus PEN E-PL7 compact mirrorless camera announced

Olympus has announced the PEN E-PL7, refreshing its entry-level mirrorless line. It offers a 16MP CMOS sensor, 3-axis image stabilization system borrowed from the OM-D E-M10, 8 fps continuous shooting and built-in Wi-Fi. Not forgetting the self-portrait-obsessed masses, the E-PL7 provides an articulated 3" touch LCD capable of flipping downward by 180°. Along with the E-PL7, Olympus has also announced an update to its OI.Share app as well as a black version of its 12mm F2.0 prime. Read more
