Summary: Very unreliable. I had the camera less than 18 months and it quit working. I really used it very little because my new smart phone takes decent pictures. Olympus wants over $100 just to examine it. I did not abuse this camera at all. It looks brand new - it practically is brand new. It took good pictures while it worked, but it didn't last long. I think it probably still would take a photo, but the view finder is totally black.
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: Olympus PEN E-PL2 12.3 MP Digital Camera from Adorama. This is a picture of the PEN E-PL1. And they show the original 40-150mm lens. Additional images show the PEN E-PL2 and the newer 40-150mm M.Zuiko lens. Which camera and lens is being sold here? I would certainly buy the PEN E-PL2 two lens system at this price, but I don't believe that this is it.
Summary: We bought the red version of this & this same review is posted there-wanted to make sure we warn as many people as possible. We purchased the EPL-2 at the end of February 2011 as it was coming out (it arrived beginning of March). We were so excited to try the Digital/SLR camera and take some great photos of our two little boys.

Outside in sunlight the images are outstanding-amazing quality and the F-focus allows you to blur the background which makes for some frame-worthy art. Inside, the pictures are about the same quality as a $100 digital camera-nothing special.
Après un an d'utilisation : l'objectif est en panne
13 June 2011
Summary: Quelle déception pour un appareil acheté plus de 500 euros, et choyé, protégé comme il se doit. Au bout d'un an d'utilisation, l'objectif montre des signes de fatigue et n'est plus en état de marche. Le service client d'Olympus que j'ai contacté m'a proposé d'établir un devis de réparation, mais m'a conseillé d'en racheter un neuf puisque les réparations sur ce type d'appareil coûtent aussi cher qu'un nouvel appareil! Au revoir Olympus! Bonjour C....!
