Olympus updated its PEN lite E-PL5 and mini E-PM2 mirrorless Micro Four Thirds cameras. These cameras now has the TruPic VI image processing engine found in their flagship m 4/3 OM-D EM-5. The new image processing engine and 16 megapixels sensor promises a better image quality than its predecessors.
