With its compact design, user-friendly features and first class picture quality, Olympus' award-winning PEN system camera range is already a firm favourite with both ambitious amateur photographers and professionals looking for a practical second camera. Led by the E-P3, the new PEN generation significantly enhances that reputation. One of the PEN's most striking – and useful – characteristics is the sheer speed and versatility of the record-breaking autofocus.

Driven by the new and powerful Olympus TruePic VI processor, the FAST AF focuses quicker* than any other camera with interchangeable lenses, giving PEN owners the very best chance of capturing fast-moving shots. What's more, it offers 35 separate focus points, spread over nearly the whole sensor, making it possible to focus on small subjects, no matter where they appear in the picture. In low light conditions, the built-in AF Illuminator compensates for potential loss of accuracy while new AF tracking technology ensures subjects stay sharp even when they move in and out of the frame.

Another potentially shotsaving bonus is Full Time AF – the focus is always active so the image is always in focus and the camera doesn't waste time focusing when the user applies pressure top the shutter release.
