Pen EP2. Imperfectly Perfect.

BSChi, Amazon
9 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera 3-4 years after it came out, so I was already buying in a technology "hole" compared to the latest models. The camera comes with no flash, mine came with no zoom (standard 17mm pancake), and is rather bulky and heavy for a non DSLR. There is no wifi, social media, GPS, and all that other fun stuff you can find on $300-$400 cameras. What it does have is sleek looks, EXCELLENT picture taking, and old school awesomeness.

Good camera, could be better

Jerry York, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had my ep-2 for ~ 1 year and clicked off a few thousand images in that time. I bought the camera because I like the lite weight, and because I had several nice Olympus legacy lenses left over from film days that I wanted to use via an adapter. I've used this camera in pouring rain with no problems. The only actual problems that I have had is with the little black spin wheel that accesses the WB, ISO, AF, etc.

Great Camera- good price

  • Summary: the E-P2 appears simple. People on the street have asked me if it's a retro film camera. The working size with a 17 mm lens ( yep purchased separately and worth it ) tucks into a jacket- no bulk and simple controls- that admittedly take some studying to learn all the options available. Give it time . Soon it all becomes very workable, even if you don't need all the functions supplied. Great camera for unobtrusive city shots.

My First Interchangeable Lens Camera

Joseph Mills, Amazon
10 March 2012
  • Summary: I have had this camera for about three months and have to say that I am impressed. For such a small and dated sensor it really does do quite well. If you are looking for a camera with lens options and something smaller than the DSLR cameras this camera does the trick. I have received many compliments on my photographs and continue to have a lot of fun taking pictures with it. There is one noticeable drawback due to the sensor type and size.

Make shooting (and filming) fun again... with some down sides.

  • Summary: I am super happy with my Olympus Pen EP2 -- which I bought about 2 weeks ago. I am just like 80% of the micro 4/3 buyers. I saw that I had an SLR that would stay at home and would catch myself taking shots on my iphone without great quality... just because its actually portable. Now the Pen matches the portability and the quality of an SLR. Biggest upside: I love the video quality.

  • Excerpt: This m43 camera (first I got) is very easy to use and perfors so well in mostly almost conditions. I´ve been using it for more than a year, JPEGs are beautiful and sometimes outstanding. Construction is very nice not cheaper one. I use it with 14-150mm attached and sometimes 14-42mm, both ofe them very nice too, mostly for general photography. I you want more velocity so must get a faster lens. Battery life is quite good.

  • Excerpt: I was using this camera for more than 08 months and I really like it. Like IQ, camera construction and choices you have to get a good picture in most of the conditions. I up-graded from Oly`s 5060 and 8080 (I love them also) and to me was what I expected. I´m also ried and tested other brands before buying it, but colors and image quality was the best to me at this range (now I have to wait to try EP 3).

  • Excerpt: I read carefully through the various reviews of this camera before purchasing. I have a 4/3 format SLR and so was used to Olympus. I really appreciated the look and feel of this camera: solid but not heavy, easy to handle but not bulky. I like the flexibility - indooors, use the 17 mm prime lens with flash as needed, outdoors and sports, use the 10X zoom with electronic viewfinder. Autofocus with the 17mm (34 mm equiv.) is fast and crisp, even in relatively low light.
