Thomas:I made a review of the OLYMPUS PEN F as a street photography camera and was using Monochrome Mode II exclusively. Furthermore I wanted to see how it goes together with a Casmlinger bag. My most important insight: Besides the fact that the little PEN F is just super sexy, it’s incredible how good the JPGs out of cam are. In fact I didn’t touch the RAWs in any way. To me this is the real KILLER FEATURE of the PEN F. Here’s a link to our blog: https://cosyspeed.wordpress.com/2016/05/05/en-pen-f-experience/
