  • 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

Olympus PEN E-PM2 Review

Digitaltrends
27 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Both cameras performed well and gave us crisp, focused photos. We were finding it difficult to justify the $100 to spring for the E-PL5 over the E-PM2. But then we started tilting the screen out to review photos or framing the best angle for a shot, and it became a “must have” feature.
  • Pros: Fast autofocusing system, Takes very good photos, Special effects and filters allow you to take fun pictures, A slightly more affordable option to the similar E-PL5
  • Cons: Requires playing around to learn features and settings, Lens is a bit big on what is otherwise a compact camera, LCD real estate is eaten up by the menu options

  • Summary: This new sensor delivers quality images combined with a speedy performance. Image noise is very low, delivering clean images until ISO 1600 and usable ones until 12800. Both white-balance and metering systems are very reliable. Colors are not perfect but can be reasonably close for general use.
  • Pros: Very low image noise, Reliable metering, Good white-balance, Quick shot-to-shot speed, Fast contrast-detect AF, Short shutter-lag, Generally responsive, Effective built-in stabilization, Excellent automatic, High level of customization
  • Cons: Poor color accuracy, Focus hunts in low light, Long black-out, Display not always, Low contrast LCD, Modal EC interface, 1s Video record delay, Uncomfortable strap eyelets, Flimsy battery and memory door

Olympus Pen E-PM2 review

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: The E-PM2 is the entry-level model in the PEN range, but it still boasts some upmarket features. Its metal body houses the same 16-megapixel sensor that's used in Olympus's top-of-the-range Olympus OMD E-M5 .

Olympus PEN Mini E-PM2 review

TechRadar UK
19 September 2012
  • Summary: Small but mighty
  • Pros: OM-D sensor, Touchscreen, Lots of art filters, It's great that this camera now includes a touchscreen, making changing the autofocus point particularly easy. It would have been nice to see this touchscreen capability expanded further into the menu system, but it's a great advantage over the camer...
  • Cons: No aperture/shutter speed dial, Fixed screen, Since there are so few buttons and direct access dials, making changes frequently can be a bit of a pain. It would have been great if Olympus could have found room for a small scroll dial for changing aperture/shutter speed at least.
