Great Camera, Screen Vulnerable, Documentation Sparse, Accessories Exorbitant
7 April 2013
Summary: I have had this E-PM2 for a month, and I’ve taken a few hundred pictures with it. I think that Olympus started out with some great ideas when they designed and built the E-PM2. There are improvements over the E-PM1, and the camera takes great pictures. There are numerous problems, though, which significantly sour the experience of using it. The camera takes great pictures by itself, with just a press of the shutter.
Summary: My wife and I purchased the E-PM2 as a Christmas present to each other in early December. We had seen the commercial on TV, and we investigated further. Everything we read was good. We decided to purchase strongly based on our history with both Olympus film and digital SLRs. We didn't open the package until Christmas morning. After reading the very limited instruction book which allowed me to set the basic system up.
