One small problem ...

Deacon Greg, Amazon
10 August 2013
  • 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.

Nice image quality, but quirky

E.Swope "Runs with pruning shears", Amazon
11 April 2013
  • Summary: I read roughly a million reviews and looked at a broad range of cameras before purchasing this a few months ago. I was looking to move up from a Lumix TZ1 which while fabulous for what it is, is quite old (at 7 years) and does not have high megapixel count or manual features. I was looking for a tough combination of high image quality, a good macro and good zoom in a relatively inexpensive camera.

THIS IS A VERY GOOD CAMERA!!!!

  • Summary: Salaam Aleikum, Long live the Iranian Islamic Empire (IIA) and Iranian Republic!! Baai'st ta veen, has lai 'aideen. Duraan filor ak meh dur, ebil ar, mufar een. Dava la ringg deraa, haasla eing taraa. Haastavariohn haalaaveen! This camera is very close to a DSLR. It has a micro 4/3rds sensor which is smaller than the size of an APS-C/APS-H that is found in DSLRs and bigger than the sensors in digital cameras.

Can't argue with a great deal

  • Excerpt: First things first. Camera was a great deal and was delivered immediately. Everyhting was as described. <br /><br />The camera is used for capturing my childs sporting events, family gatherings and general photography. It has done well inevery area - once I figured out how to use it. <br /><br />I am still learning the camera and its subtleties, but it is a great camera. I will be buying the zoom lens from Cameta in teh near future.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Complicated Controls

Great step up from point & shoot

Kev, Amazon
24 April 2012
  • Summary: Bought this camera a month ago to capture better quality pictures of the baby and everything that comes with it, and something not too bulky to carry around. The built-in pop up flash that can be tilted and the shape of the body were main reasons I chose this over the E-PL3. Although the kit lens I hear is slower than the E-PL3, but at least it's faster that the E-PL1.

small, but heavy

Miang in AZ, Amazon
9 January 2012
  • Summary: Size: It is not that small, but not that big. It is not a pocket camera to carry with, yet it is kind of small in your hand for a good grip. Focus: It will get the focus, but slow for my taste. Lens: The kid lens tend to be too warm and mask a yellowish to the images. battery: is good, it hold a charge for months in storage and last the whole day on a typical use. Video: I like it a lot. I would say, it does video better than still picture.

User Review

DallasPer, DP Review
9 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Having read multiple review about m4/3 cameras I finally pulled the trigger on the E-PL2 and am very happy with my decision. I was previously a Nikon DSLR user (D40, D5000, D5100) and was sick of carrying around a giant camera bag whenever I wanted to take some serious pictures. And the fact that when you show up with a DSLR with a speed light people normally assume you're the "party photographer" or "event staff".

Not for me but perhaps for you

Coronet Blue, Amazon
6 November 2011
  • Summary: It's funny what you can get accustomed to. I held off buying serious digital camera until I felt they were good enough to equal or surpass 35mm film. I had a couple small sensor SLRs and pretty soon ended up with a D700 for low light and a 5DII for everything else. I never thought I could put up with the size and weight of these monsters but when I look at the images, man, its worth it.
