Let’s catch up with some PEN related news:
The Dutch website Pixelmania (translation here) posted the full E-Pl5 review. Also Frankfurter Allgemeine (translation here) tested the E-PL5. First imrpession at Sgoldswoblog.
E-PM2 test at (translation here).
Body cap resolution test at DSLRmagazine (translation here).
E-PM1 in Afghanistan at Pen And Tell.
Michaël:Maybe it’s too late after the initial release, but I took some shots with my recently acquired E-PL5 and 20mm 1.7, as well as one shot with the Samyang 7.5mm fisheye. They’re on flickr here:

    Hi Admin,

    Thanks for the blog about the E-PM1 in Aphganistan. Personally I would prefer more links like this instead of so many tests and news about gear.

      Yep, whenever you can find good work like this send me the link and I will post it!

    c’mon, they manage a f/2.8 fullframe “lenscap” and only f/8 for mFT? WTF?
    if the cap was at least f/3.5 or something.

      The picture is a bit deceptive, the silver metal ‘ring’ that looks like it is part of the body on that PEN F is actually part of the lens.

      The PEN F pancake is in fact significantly larger then the bodycap lens, and it isn’t ‘full frame’ either, the PEN F is a ‘half frame’ camera (very close to APS-C actually but uses 35mm film).

      I own and use a PEN FT, the pancake prime is on my wishlist, but typical price for a good condition second hand one also easily buys you the upcoming 17mm/1.8 m4/3 lens.

      So, comparing that PEN F lens with the bodycap lens is like comparing apples and oranges.
