Olympus PEN E-PL2 Review

What Digital Camera
5 May 2011
  • Summary: At £479 for the standard kit at launch, the E-PL2 is competitively priced against the competition. It’s roughly £30 more than the equivalent Panasonic GF2 kit, and £30 less than the Sony NEX-5 kit, while the Samsung NX100 is the most affordable of them all at £299.
  • Pros: Design, Build, Handling and competitive image quality
  • Cons: No viewfinder may put off some and performance not up to a similar priced DSLR

Olympus PEN E-PL2 Review

25 January 2011
  • Summary: On the one hand we have a small and rather fiddly camera that needs some considerable care in operation. On the other hand we have a very compact unit that can deliver the very highest quality of results, and this must in the end be what counts.
  • Pros: High quality results, Compact size, Value for money, Stylish retro design
  • Cons: Fiddly operation of some controls, Limited lens range

Olympus E-PL2

Pocket Lint
17 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Priced at £529 at launch, the biggest problem the Olympus E-PL2 faces is being priced too close to more capable entry-level DSLR models, which ultimately will offer finer detail in the same conditions.
  • Pros: Compact, good build quality, Art Filters are fun, simple controls, some great quality results, growing number of accessories in the Micro Four Thirds arena
  • Cons: Not much of a change over the E-PL1, some intermittent shadow noise at low ISOs
