Beautiful design that transcends time

It has machined aluminum dials, a magnesium top cover, and a perfectly calculated dial layout. This model is the culmination of Olympus' uncompromising design aesthetics in every single detail.
Top-class interchangeable-lens-camera image quality
A 20M Live MOS sensor. Zuiko lenses with a rich, 80-years history. The TruePic VII image processor which brings out the best performance of the sensor and lenses. An advanced, in-body 5-axis image stabilisation system. All of these combine to provide top-class interchangeable-lens-camera image quality in any type of shooting condition.
20M Live MOS sensor
This camera is equipped with a 20M Live MOS sensor. The low-pass filterless sensor enables high resolution. Low sensitivity ISO LOW mode is expanded from the traditional ISO 100 to ISO 80 equivalent. High sensitivity shooting is supported up to ISO 25600. The image processor optimally tuned to match the sensor makes clear, high quality images with minimal noise possible.
The world's highest performance in-body 5-axis image stabilisation
This model is equipped with in-body 5-axis image stabilisation that compensates for all types of camera shake. Its compensation performance is equivalent to a world’s best 5 shutter speed steps,making it possible to capture high-quality, sharp, hand-held snapshots even in dark locations. Because it is built into the camera body, even older lenses without electronic contacts can make use of this feature. The viewfinder image stops shaking when you press the shutter button halfway, providing stable framing for shooting.

Colour Profile Control
Colour Profile Control is a function that creates colour essential for creating artistic shots. In addition to the two built-in presets that produce an effect that recreate the look of colour reversal film, you can control the colour saturation of 12 colours independantly, creating photos with your own original flair to match the situation or your style.
High visibility, easy-to-focus viewfinder
The camera is equipped with a built-in high-definition OLED viewfinder. The electronic viewfinder makes many of the PEN-F’s attractive features possible, such as S-OVF (Simulated OVF) which provides a view that is similar to the unaided eye, Magnified Display which lets you focus accurately anywhere on the screen, and Focus Peaking which assists your manual focusing.
This PEN-F has a 2.36 million-dot OLED viewfinder with 1.23x viewfinder magnification (35mm equivalent: 0.62x) and a 100% field of view. There are no shifted colours or aberrations even at the edges, providing a clear view of the entire image down to the smallest details so you can concentrate on your shot and focus easily.
This camera features a high-performance shutter with short time lag so you never miss a shot, and FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) AF autofocus for instant focusing.
