Olympus PEN E-P5: Old School Looks, New School Guts

We’ve been seeing a lot of new cameras with old school looks lately, and again that’s old school, not Old Schoolthough we gotta admit a Will Ferrell-based camera would be a treat. The latest retro-themed shooter is the Olympus PEN E-P5, featuring a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor (ISO range is 100-25600), autofocus system, 5-axis image stabilization system, and max shutter speed of 1/8000th, a first when it comes to compact system cameras, so you’ll be able to capture fast-moving objects with clarity. Olympus is asking for $1,000 for the body only, or $1450 for the camera with a 17mm f/1.8 kit lens and a VF-4 electronic viewfinder.
