The PEN F takes the line a step forward: by further refining the design, both in terms of materials/construction and the addition of a built-in viewfinder. In short, the PEN F is a very capable camera jam-packed with features and tools to help shooters realize their vision. It offers impressive image quality, some of the best image stabilization available, acceptable video quality, direct controls and ample customization, all in one incredibly-handsome digital camera.
Of course if you care more about specs and abilities, and less about design, there are more technically capable cameras available for the money.
The camera earned the Silver Award with a 82% score.
Also Photographyblog posted their PEN-F reviews:
The new Olympus PEN-F is trying to appeal to your emotions as much as your wallet, and in our view it succeeds in making your heart rule your head. Olympus’ engineering team have obviously spent a lot of time and effort in getting the look, feel and usability of the PEN-F just right, creating a camera that’s both retro but also thoroughly modern, and in our view worthy of our highest accolade.

The Olympus PEN-F is priced at a very similar level to other cameras from Olympus, including the weather-sealed E-M5 Mark II, and E-M1, which makes the PEN-F a more difficult choice, particularly if you use a tripod and different lenses. However, if you’re looking for a compact street camera, and are likely to use the more compact lenses with the camera, and love the idea of quick access to different shooting effects, then the PEN-F could be just the ticket. The additional resolution of the 20 megapixel sensor and rangefinder style with built in electronic viewfinder may also be appealing to those that don’t like the more traditional SLR-style of camera. Throw in the fact that you can shoot 50 megapixel images, and the Olympus PEN-F offers a unique shooting experience, which is difficult to match without spending significantly more money.
