The Olympus Pen E-P5 is a Micro Four Thirds camera whose retro design is based on that of the old series of Pen film cameras. Until the announcement of the Pen F in 2016, it was the flagship model in the Olympus Pen series and had a number of advanced features other Pen cameras didn’t have such as a 16MP sensor, 5-axis in-body stabilisation and a fast mechanical shutter speed of 1/8000 of a second. It was announced alongside the VF-4 external electronic viewfinder, which you could attach to the hotshoe to compensate for the lack of a built-in finder.
