  • Summary: The Olympus PEN-EPM2 is a point-and-shoot mirrorless camera which does exactly what a novice will need it to. For more adventurous users, there's a lot of functionality hidden beneath the skin (including the image quality of the OM-D) making the E-PM2 a potentially very attractive second camera.
  • Pros: OM-D image quality in smaller, lighter, cheaper body, Excellent JPEG color and exposure, Suprising level of customizability with several user-assigned function buttons, Raw shooting and in-camera processing, Small but functional handgrip, Flash accessory included, Fast 8 fps burst shooting mode, ...
  • Cons: Flash competes with other potential accessories for single accessory port, Image on LCD is difficult to see in bright sunlight, No external dials for exposure mode/shooting parameter setting, Sparse controls and compact layout may be too cramped for some

  • Summary: In late 2012, Olympus announced two Micro Four Thirds PEN series cameras, the "Mini" E-PM2 and the "Lite" E-PL5. Spec-wise, both cameras are virtually identical, and we'll get to that in a moment, but let's start out with why they're different and how.
  • Pros: Outstanding image quality, High-quality widescreen LCD is great, Touch screen option on LCD is nice for beginners, Various control buttons give you a second option if you choose not to use the touch screen, Small camera design versus DSLRs is appealing, yet camera remains c, Classic retro look of...
  • Cons: Menu structure can be a little tough to master, Doesn't quite have the image quality you'd find in a DSLR camera, May require investment in additional lenses in the future, No built-in or popup flash option means you have to carry the included external flash unit with you at all times, Touchscree...

Olympus Pen E-PM2 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: Don't be put off or fooled by the rather simplistic menu layout and the art filters, which may not be to everyone's taste. The Olympus Pen E-PM2 is a very capable little camera, and would be ideal for someone looking for a CSC for occasional use alongside a more advanced DSLR.
