Olympus PEN E-PL6 with 14-42mm Lens


This little camera is an excellent entry-point into interchangeable lens cameras. It offers great image quality with its 16.1 MP Micro Four Thirds sensor, but won’t break the bank doing it. Because it has the same sensor, processor, and lenses as the OM-D E-M5, you know it will be capable of producing great photos, but it’s small size and simple control layout will encourage anyone to start shooting. This is the perfect camera for those who want to experiment in high-quality photography without carrying around a hefty DSLR and without investing too much money. It also makes a great backup camera if you’re already invested in a Micro Four Thirds system.
