Photo Review has published a new review on the Olympus E-PL5. This will not be the only time that the E-PL5 will receive good reviews. Their only reasons for not getting the E-PL5 is because you may want a built-in EVF or your hand might be too big to handle the E-PL5 comfortably. Interestingly, E-PL5′s grip is removable, so perhaps Olympus may produce a larger grip in the future as well.
Their conclusion: The E-PL5 is a nice little camera and would be an excellent choice for photographers who want a small and light interchangeable-lens camera with superior overall performance. Olympus has a wide choice of excellent lenses to match it and, if you can’t find precisely the lens you want, there’s a good chance it will be available from Panasonic or one of the increasing number of third-party manufacturers that have begun to develop lenses for the system.
