Olympus E-P5

ep5 front.jpeg

The E-P5 is the fourth generation of the original Olympus m4/3 camera. Basically take an E-P3 body and add the newer OM-D DNA in the sensor and operational ergonomics and you have the E-P5. The E-P5 also adds a couple of new bits: faster autofocus and focus peaking. Note that the E-P5 is not weather sealed like the OM-D E-M5.
