Summary: I own several Olympus mirrorless cameras and I am very pleased with this one. I bought it because of the larger sensor compared to my other previous models, and is the same sensor used in the more expensive OMD line. I was also interested in the fast auto focus that works very well - it is indeed very fast. This camera is probably best for people migrating from point and shoot as features are menu driven and not dial driven.
Summary: I just picked up a used e-pm2 body only for an incredible price. I have been using an e-pm1 with the two zooms as a second camera system for some time. My main system is an APS-C DSLR with a fairly extensive zooms (total 7 including 3 @f/2.8) and fixed FL lenses (total 11, 8 with aperture >f/2.8). The e-pm1 has been nice for the size and acceptable under good light but resolution is definitely lacking, especially compared to the DSLR.
Summary: i had the pl-1, pm-1 and now the pm-2. i love this camera. the IQ is through the roof, it never lets me down . having so many options and modes is very nice. HD videos are quite respectable for a still camera, the burst rate (8fps)is a great asset. i also prefer the in camera stabilization which is outstanding in its' self. the super control panel gives you instant access to all major settings. touch screen controls so many great lenses is a definite plus.
Pros: touch screen, small and handy for my smallish hands, IQ is outstanding, easy to operate, super control panel,lens selection
... for her birthday and so far she is quite happy with it

Summary: Purchased this for my wife for her birthday and so far she is quite happy with it. Pictures appear to be quite good and the two lenses provide flexibility for close ups and longer distance zooming. For her first camera beyond a point-and-shoot, this seems to meet her needs quite nicely.
