Review: Olympus Pen E-P2

2 March 2010
  • Excerpt: If you have trouble deciding between a digital SLR and a compact point-and-shoot, Olympus’ new micro four-thirds camera may be the perfect camera for you … provided you’ve got a cartoon-sized sack full of money.
  • Pros: Compact, 12-megapixel camera with interchangeable lenses. Giant LCD screen. Great low-light performance, professional features including full manual control and RAW mode. That design is hot, son. Hot!
  • Cons: A good deal more expensive than the nearly identical E-P1. Costs about the same as a full-sized DSLR. LCD viewfinder is lower-resolution than the main LCD and is annoyingly laggy. Viewfinder also hogs flash hot-shoe.

  • Conclusion: The E-P2 Micro Four Thirds camera has all the benefits and shortfalls of the less expensive E-P1, but it also includes a detachable electronic viewfinder.
  • Pros: D-SLR-quality images. Sharp images from ISO 100-800 at all f-stops. Low noise from ISO 100-1600. Attractive design. 720p30 HD video capture. Mini HDMI port.
  • Cons: Slow autofocus. No built-in flash. Electronic viewfinder is no match for an optical viewfinder. Camera picks up lens motor noise when shooting video.
