Summary: This was the most disappointing camera EVER. I am an Olympus "fan", but this thing was made of something worse than plastic... REALLY !! I charged the battery and was putting it and the memory card (same place)..but I couldn't get the battery cover to snap back. I took it out over and over-re-read instructions, and finally it just "snapped" off??? I was worse than disgusted and wondered what Olympus has come to.
Summary: I have had this camera for about a year. I'm not a camera expert, but wanted a small high quality camera that I could use in a range of situations. I've been very disappointed with the quality of the photographs that this camera has taken from the beginning. The exposure levels of photographs outdoors are reliable or consistent in bright light conditions, the quality of indoor shots are grainy.
Summary: for taking photos, 14-42 mm kit LENS by olympus for pm2 is one of the worst out there... NOT SHARP at all be ready for massive photoshopping of ALL your photos might as well get a tiny compact camera at half price, it is much sharper. thanks japan amazon sells this pc of nonsense for about usd 120 btw and uk amazon wants usd 400 for same pc of wreck usa amazon wants usd 200 for the lens... the camera is quite OK tho.... so you have 2 options..
