Summary: While this camera is a couple of generations back now, at current prices I think it is the biggest bargain in all of interchangeable lens digital photography. It is compatible with the entire Olympus/Panasonic Micro 4/3 system and in my opinion hits the sweet spot between price, size, picture quality, and versatility exactly on the button.
Summary: This is not the item I thought I was getting. The item was advertised as the E-PL2—the second generation of this particular camera, with improvements and adjustments from the good-but-needed-improvement E-PL1. Unfortunately, the camera is, in fact, the E-PL1. Please be more careful and accurate in your labeling of the products you are posting for sale.
Summary: I used my camera to take pictures at meetings. It had a boring life, and a remarkably short one, too. When a plastic ring in the lens got dislodged, making it impossible to extend, I sent it to Olympus for a repair. They found "evidence of extensive impact damage" and said it was not economically practical to repair the item. I had owned the camera much less than a year. But they offered 20% off a new Olympus lens. No, thank you very much.
Summary: I purchased this back in summer 2011 and it's been nothing but good to me. I got the white body because I suppose I'm a hipster like that (or whatever the kids are calling it). In the two years it's certainly taken a beating but it's kind of like the Energizer bunny as it just keeps going and going. The finish has a few nicks and scratches at this point but the camera is aging well.
Summary: Yes their are beter cameras, but this works well for me. A work horse for time-lapse as raw files not so big but can get sharp images from unit. Guess I'm use to using this camera and holding out for the next wave of mirrorless to step up. But these are great for fun and cheap $$$, good quality images and unit/glass.
Excerpt: I also have the E-pl1 which I was having problems with in low light (focus hunt) Olympus seems to have solved the problem with this model. I now have two bodies and use the pl1 for the larger zoom so i dont have to change the lens.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
