I recently received a new camera for my birthday. It is an Olympus Pen Lite E-PL5. It is a Micro Four Thirds interchangeable lens system camera. I wanted more than my Canon point and shoot camera, which I love and has served me well, but has some issues that I have found limiting. I was not willing to step up to a large Digital SLR. This is my compromise. It is smaller than the larger Nikon DSLR I had at one time, allows for some creative choices and interchangeable lenses with the fun aspects of point and shoot. It came with a 14-22mm zoom lens and I also bought a 40-150mm zoom. I am still getting used to it, but I like it more every time I use it. Today I took it out to try some macro shots and was satisfied with the results.
