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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Panasonic GF2 and epl2 where the 2 cameras that I was looking for. I found that both of them were remarkably similar but chose EPL2 because it had a better low light performance, and true to its word I was astounded by the ISO 1600 pic qualities.
