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, Touch-sensitive screen available for those who want it; enough physical buttons for those who don't, AF is very fast and accurate - among the best AF systems out there for sin...
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: 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. The E-PM2 outputs images clearly ahead of its predecessor and improves speed in all areas except video.
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
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. It will be interesting to see how the new Pen E-PL5 (Pen Lite) fares in our test in a few weeks' time, and to see exactly what features it adds to the Olympus Pen range.

Excerpt: Ikke nok med at det er lille og let – faktisk er det kun Nikon J3, der er mindre – det har også samme teknik som Olympus’ topmodeller OM-D og P5. Med færre knapper og enklere betjening er indlæringstærsklen overkommelig. Kameraet kan lave serieoptagelser på 8 billeder i sekundet, det har trykfølsom skærm, hvor du kan fokusere og tager billeder med fingeren på skærmen, samt separat blitz.
Summary: A qualidade de construção é típica de qualquer Pen da Olympus, com o corpo em alumínio, moldura em plástico reforçado e um pequeno apoio frontal de borracha que melhora significativamente a ergonomia da máquina. Por causa da reduzida dimensão, esta Pen Mini utiliza um ecrã fixo, de três polegadas e táctil, que facilita bastante a utilização dos menus utilizados na máquina, embora sirva igualmente para indicar o ponto de focagem que pretende fotografar.
Pros: Dimensões verdadeiramente compactas | Qualidade de imagem
