21 Reasons For

Good Brand

MILC digital cameras produced by Olympus have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all digital cameras (not just MILC digital cameras) and found that Olympus also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports Wi-Fi

The PEN E-PL7 supports wi-Fi, unlike most of the other similar spec cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PEN E-PL7 which do not support wi-Fi.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative digital cameras which support wi-Fi currently available including the Olympus E-P5 + M.ZUIKO ED 14‑42mm + CSS-S110 LS[plb_2032029_price], or the Samsung NX300M[plb_2205970_price] which has better reviews.

We think you might also be interested in other digital cameras which also support wi-Fi including the Sony ILCE-5000 + E PZ 16-50mm + E 55-210mm[plb_2109568_price].
