Trade offs for sure, and the 14-42 kit lens won't win any awards

K. Ambrose, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been taking photographs with film SLRs and rangefinders using both full manual control and "program" modes for about 30 years, and I have also owned and used two digital cameras- a Nikon 950 and now this Olympus. Overall, I am disappointed in the EP-2. I bought it because I wanted a mirrorless digital camera having full manual control, as well as HD video, and a zoom lens hopefully with macro capability. Basically I wanted an upgrade for my 10 year old Nikon 950.

flash & viewfinder can't be used at the same time

  • Summary: great, compact camera with total manual options. the only problem is... the flash and the eyepiece (purchase separately) both go in the hotshoe! which means you can't use them at the same time, which is a pretty huge drawback in my opinion. other than that, great, durable, beautiful camera, excellent image quality, great video. hmph.

this had to be returned

  • Summary: This one has very good specifications and is solidly built.. it is surprisingly fast as well. However this comes in pieces. anything you'd want to do.. add or remove a piece.. that could be so cumbersome at times.. no Inbuilt flash.. that is not acceptable.. had to return it.

Not what I'd hoped for

C. Frank, Amazon

  • Summary: I just returned my Olympus PEN e-P2 and I thought I would post a little review for others' edification. A while back, I sold my APS-C outfit (a Canon 20D with lenses) because I wanted something that I felt comfortable carrying around...something that doesn't look like a weapon when it's pointed at you and that i feel comfortable taking on the bus or bike or to social events. It turns out that I sold prematurely as I was convinced that micro 4/3s would be the holy grail.

mixed feelings

Nikola, Amazon
30 July 2010
  • Summary: I have been using E-P2 (with M.Zuiko 14-42mm and Lumix G 45-200mm lenses) for more than two months now, and still have some mixed feelings about it. I updated the firmware immediately after the purchase: body version 1.1, 14-42m lens version 1.1, and 45-200mm lens version 1.2. Bear in mind that values for focal lengths stated above are about 1/2 of their 35-mm equivalents. I like the relatively small size given the quality and the number of features packed in.

User Review

Yossi Kramer, DP Review
26 March 2010
  • Excerpt: A cute small camera - similar to the Olympus Pen I own some 40 years. Quite responsive, and the EVF is very good (besides in low light conditions). The menu is quite simple but not intuitive. It handles white balance very good, even in incandescent light. Works great with Nikon lenses with an adapter. Problems: Images are noisy, even at iso 100. Noise can be removed by post processing, but I was not expecting that noise level. It's too expensive for what it offers.

  • Summary: Une belle arnaque pour ceux qui comme moi ont acheté le PEN E-P1 à sa sortie il y a à peine trois mois, les annonces d'un viseur performant en fin...
