An affordable, selfie-friendly mirrorless camera
The Olympus PL9 follows in the footsteps of the 2016-model year Olympus PL8, which was itself the seventh-generation model in a line which traces its heritage back to the PL1, back in April 2010. (Wondering why the disparity between generation and model number? Olympus skipped the fourth generation, likely because of the unlucky association for that particular digit in some Asian cultures.)
So who’s the PL9 for? Like every preceding model in the line, the Olympus PL9 is an extremely affordable camera aimed at the budget-minded photographer who nevertheless wants interchangeable-lens, mirrorless camera versatility, from bloggers and Instagram-lovers to artists and selfie fans. Priced at just £580 or thereabouts when sold body-only in the UK market (that’s roughly US$670 before tax, at current exchange rates), the PL9 is also available with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ pancake zoom lens for £650 (US$750 before tax).
