  • 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

Digital Camera Review
27 February 2013
  • Summary: The E-PM2 is Olympus’s newest teammate in the PEN line up. Joining greats like the E-PL3 , E-PL5 and the OM-D E-M5 , the E-PM2 has a lot to offer first time mirrorless camera users. It follows in the footsteps of it’s predecessor, the E-PL1 . It is lightweight, portable and fun.
  • Pros: Great image quality up to ISO 1600, Fast focusing, Compact size, The addition of the touchscreen really boosted performance up from the EPM1, Excellent battery life, The set it and forget it philosophy will have great appeal to the beginning shooter
  • Cons: No pop-up flash, High ISO pixel smudging, Too much of a plasticy feeling to the camera body

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.

  • 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 .

  • 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.
