Let There be Light: Olympus PEN-F and 42.5mm Nocticron
Patrick sets the scene....
I’ve always been attracted to Olympus Pen cameras for a lot of the same reasons its users like them. Their compact, retro-inspired forms are attractive but there’s definitely more than meets the eye; they are also versatile cameras that can produce excellent images. But one feature I felt was always missing was a built-in viewfinder, which is why the OM-D series was always what I would look at first if I were to consider a micro four thirds system from Olympus. However, decisions just got a little more difficult with the newly released Pen-F. Not only is there a new built-in viewfinder, there is a list of other upgrades, improvements, and features. Unlike the SLR-like qualities of the OM-D series, the Pen-F has a more rangefinder-like design. So, the question is, which one is best for you?
