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.
