Thread: EPL6 vs EPL5

  1. #1


    Default EPL6 vs EPL5


    I know the EPL6 has only been announced for Japan, but assuming its soon available elsewhere, I'm stumped about its major benefit over the EPL5. Can someone summarize, maybe in a 2 sentences, what the EPL6 advantage is?

    None for taking pictures. It's really a E-PL5 with wi-fi.

    Here's the Olympus Japan FAQ page explaining the differences between E-PL5 & E-PL6.

    In Japan you can get a free VF-3, a matching colored body-cap lens, or a Flash Air card if you buy E-PL6

    This differs from what I've read. The differences that stood out to me are: faster max shutter speed (1/8000 second), lower min ISO (100) and it works with the eye sensor of the new VF-4. I don't believe it has WiFi.

    I stand corrected.

    Here is the official product page if you want more details on the E-PL6.

    One interesting feature is the "Short Release Time Lag Mode" which reduces shutter lag. What's interesting is that one can turn this feature on or off. This suggests that there is some downside to using it, since I can't imagine anyone wanting to dial in more shutter lag. I wonder what the trade-off is. Any ideas?

    IIRC it substantially reduces battery life.

    I think it just adds some gimmick for tech gearheads but its core features are the same of E-pl5.
