Summary: I had 2 SLRs and sold my low-end Nikon D40x, thinking I would get the same quality in a smaller package. It seems like a glorified point-and-shoot to me. I guess I will have to get used to it.
Summary: JPEG IQ is great, but high ISO is mediocre, sensor is old vs. rival mirrorless cameras, auto focus is fast enough but lack focus assist in low light, which is near useless with moving objects or people in low light.
Summary: i got mine about a month ago, the picture qualities are quite acceptable but i have been bothered by a VERY MAJOR DESIGN FLAW which i wish to disclose here on amazon.com to all you users. The position of the many bottoms are awful. If the camera is front facing, you are hard pressed to hold it and grab it without hitting accidentally the "video" button, or some of the other buttons such as exposures +/- buttons for increased / decreased exposures.
Summary: I was embarrassed. This item don't include memory card. I couldn't find out that point when I checked this item details. So today, I had to buy memory card which I could buy cheaper at amazon.com at UTCmall separately, because I need to take a pic tomorrow. Anyway, please note this point when you ordeer this item.
Summary: The E-PL2 was my first micro-four thirds camera and my first Olympus. I've had a succession of Nikon DSLR's over the years, along with a rotation of higher-end compacts from most of the camera manufacturers. I currently have a D90, and it's never let me down. But I wanted something smaller and more portable but with better-than-P&S-IQ, and the E-PL2 looked very promising. I was really looking forward to it.
Summary: I am a keen amateur photographer with a canon 60d and a S95. I have been looking for a camera for a while now that was roughly the size of the S95 but had better image quality. Having read up extensively on the E-Pl2 it seemed like my ideal camera what with its larger sensor, compact size and the ability to change lenses. Now I had messed about previously with the E-PL1 and can comment on a few things for those of you upgrading. -The screen is much better.
Ottima per chi desidera incominciare nel mondo m4/3

Summary: Uscita per sostituire la Best Seller E-Pl1 la E-Pl2 ne reincarna la stessa filosofia cercando di soddisfare le esigenze degli utenti medi. La macchina appena presa in mano è leggera e solida allo stesso tempo, quindi la manifattura è di ottima qualità e i materiali sono ottimi, la plastica è un composto molto compatto e solido.
Pros: Corpo compatto, pulizia file .
Cons: Comandi un pò piccoli e lcd non all'altezza delle altre PEN .
Summary: Yo tenía una Lumix LX3, que desgraciadamente me robaron. Al momento de reemplazarla, pensé que al comprar una Olympus E-PL2 , de verdad iba a dar un paso en grande, a avanzar. Pues bien, ya estoy convencido de que no es así. La calidad de imagen de esta E-PL2 no sólo no supera la calidad de la LX3, sino que está muy lejos de igualarla.
Summary: Bisher hatte ich nur eine Kompaktkamera und um bessere Bilder zu machen, war für mich zunächst die Frage: Systemkamera oder einsteiger-DSLR? Aufgrund des Designs und der gewissen Leichtigkeit entschied ich mich für die PEN E-PL2 im Kit mit 2 Objektiven. Die Freude war groß, als das gute Teil endlich da war. Nach ca. 10 Tagen ausführlichen Testens gab es aber doch zuviele Probleme, um das Geld zu rechtfertigen. Am meisten hat mich eine gewisse "Rotstichigkeit" gestört.
