Olympus E-P2

CNET
16 August 2010
  • Summary: For some, an elegant shooter's design and high-quality low-ISO photos may more than adequately compensate for the Olympus E-P2's sluggish performance.
  • Cons: Sluggish autofocus; short battery life; low-resolution LCD; lacks on-camera flash.

  • Summary: The E-P2 keeps up the Olympus tradition of churning out cameras that really are head and shoulders above the competition. Just be aware you’ll need to stump up a substantial amount for the basic camera and lens package, and that’s before you get the extras such as the viewfinder. It’s a winner, but one which will hammer your wallet hard.

  • Conclusion: Olympus PEN E-P2 retro system camera When the Olympus P1 was introduced, people admired this bold step by Olympus. The PEN camera was and is in many ways a unique camera, although Panasonic has now introduced a similar camera. The design of the Olympus PEN P2 camera is virtually identical to the P1, retro with a modern touch to it. It remains a great camera both to look at and to work with, as this Olympus E-PEN P2 surely stands out.

Olympus E-P2 Review

Digital Camera Review
16 February 2010
  • Summary: Camera makers have attempted, several times, over the past fifty years to combine the creative potential and flexibility of an interchangeable lens SLR camera with the convenience and usability of a pocket-sized Point and Shoot camera. Unfortunately, that's sort of like trying to combine a sports car with a minivan - it usually doesn't work.

Olympus PEN E-P2

Tech2
12 August 2009
  • Excerpt: For years I've been writing about bridge cameras – cameras that are advanced enough to bridge the gap between consumer cameras and DSLRs. But the bridge factor on these cameras have been the advance features like higher zoom level, better manual control options and even manual ring-based focus and zoom controls. But the biggest differentiating factor between compacts and DSLRs have been rarely touched upon, which is the sensor size.

Good Gear Guide.au
28 August 2010
  • Summary: The addition of an electronic viewfinder makes the Olympus Pen E-P2 a marvellous camera for enthusiasts and professionals. It's small, has advanced controls and is capable of taking super-clear images.
  • Pros: Excellent clarity, no noticeable chromatic aberration, excellent for macros, useful Art and scene modes, very good low-light performance
  • Cons: Electronic viewfinder has different colour temperature to LCD screen, no built-in flash, mode dial can be difficult to change

Olympus Pen E-P2 digital camera review

Pocket Lint
4 February 2010
  • Excerpt: When the Olympus Pen E-P1 flashed onto the scene in June last year, we knew we were looking at something special, not just from its distinctive looks, but also because it was so much fun to use. There were shortcomings, however, and the second coming moves to address some of those, significantly adding an accessories port on the back which most notably gives you the option of attaching an electronic viewfinder.
  • Pros: Design, accessories port, great imaging quality, excellent video controls, so much fun to use, EVF
  • Cons: No onboard flash, focusing can be a little unreliable, price

Olympus E-P2 Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Het fotograferen met de Olympus PEN E-P2 is ons wederom goed bevallen. En hoewel het weinig verrassend was blijft het opvallend dat fotograferen met een Olympus PEN P2 een extra dimensie aan fotografie lijkt te geven. Ik ben er nog steeds niet over uit wat het nu is, maar feit blijft dat ik fotografie op een andere manier beleef in vergelijking met bijvoorbeeld het fotograferen met een full-frame DSLR.

Olympus PEN E-P2 14-42mm Kit mit Sucher

testgiant.de
21 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Olympus hat seit dem Release der E-P1 nur knapp ein halbes Jahr verstreichen lassen, als die E-P2 der Öffentlichkeit vorgestellt wurde. Wie in unserem Test der E-P1 ist das Ergebnis der E-P2 sehr ähnlich. Ein Pluspunkte bekommt die Kamera nur wegen dem verbesserten Autofokus und dem mitgelieferten Sucher. Diese Kamera eignet sich auch gut für Videoaufnahmen. Eine Alternative ist die deutlich günstigere Olympus PEN E-P1 .
