    Great camera (REVISED REVIEW), December 1, 2012
    nnyms (Bethesda, MD) –
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I am not disappointed at all with the price/performance of the E-PM2. I got it from an Amazon Marketplace seller on sale for $499 and I sold the bundled lens on Ebay for $119 because I prefer prime lenses–new and latest generation, best image quality Olympus has to offer in a digital camera, for $380 net of sold lens.

    What I like about the new E-PM2
    –Great low light abilities. Pics at ISO 3200 are still good.
    –Touch screen controls are quick. I find I can work the controls on this camera faster than the E-PL3 I previously owned.
    –Focuses better and faster than the previous generation PEN.
    –Includes a little grip on the front. Makes handling camera much better.

    I have previously owned Canon APS-C DLSR equipment and had purchased some high end L lenses.

    I soon found that my favorite pics were using a 50mm f/1.2, shooting without flash, indoors and wide open most of the time.

    I sold my Canon gear a couple years back and decided due to financial and social constraints, I needed a far less expensive camera that had to be small so it would not annoy people, and could still take beautiful pictures.

    I read loads of great things about the new Olympus 45mm f/1.8 lens, but was hesitant with micro 4/3′s due to the sensors lagging behind their APS-C cousins. Not wanting to wait any longer, there were some crazy inexpensive deals on the Olympus E-PL3 during the summer. I sold the kit lens, which by the way is good, and started shooting with the 45mm attached. I got some great photos, but as many of the shots I take are in low light, I was often let down by the 12MP sensor on the E-PL3. The high ISO capabilities showed too much noise at anything higher than ISO 800.

    I was very pleased when I saw the OMD E-5 hit the market cause I knew its lower priced siblings would soon be on their way.

    Bottom line is the E-PM2 can take photographs that look like more than just snapshots, and deserve to be called portraits. Remember, it is not just the camera, but the lens you put on it that makes the whole package. While the $399 45mm f/1.8 lens is great, it is not in the same class as the $1,600 Canon 50mm f/1.2, but I cannot justify the $1201 difference. As for image quality, at 16mp of near perfection for the price, you would need an immensely more expensive full frame DSLR and/or professional quality full-frame DSLR lenses to substantially improve your photos.

    If you want compact and quality, Micro 4/3′s is a much better size over any APS-C format camera, and the Micro 4/3′s camp have hands-down the best selection of lenses out there for mirror-less cameras.

    For me, there is no other choice if you are looking for an inexpensive camera and interchangeable lens system. PEN E-PM2 gets 5 stars from me.

    I have been using the camera on-the-go lately. Have to say it is hard to get an in-focus shot of faster moving subjects–kids. Yes, I am using a thin-depth-of-field at f/1.8, but even my old crop-sensor 8mp Canon DSLR from 2007 did better in continuous focus. Still love the form factor. Look forward to further improvements in mirror-less camera focusing. Will still leave 5-stars because this camera is NOT a DSLR. if you need DSLR features, then, for now, it is still only a DLSR can that deliver.

    From a photo enthusiast’s point of view, December 8, 2012
    GM (Campbell, CA USA) –

    The Olympus E-PM2 camera, which I ordered for $100 off on black friday arrived. First things first: The quality of raw images of E-PM2 rivals many APS-C cameras, and it’s the best in mu4/3 realm. Plus the camera is tiny compared to a DSLR. Does it deliver on the promises? Some thoughts after a month of use:

    * Low ISO images have certain depth and clarity that I only used to get with a DSLR (I’ve previously owned Canon DSLRs including Rebel Xti, 40D, 5dMkII).
    * Colors & auto white balance of images are pretty good. Rich yet natural.
    * Autofocus with Olympus 45mm f/1.8 is impressive. Initial acquisition is very fast in good light. Allows me to take pictures of our 1yr old toddler while he’s on the move (mind you, he’s not a sprinter).
    * The camera is pretty fast in high speed mode. Shot-to-shot blackout time is short. Writing on SD card is quick.
    * Touch-shutter works really well. I either use the center-point focus or touch shutter, both of which are fast and effective.
    * The camera itself is good looking compared to most alternatives (I ordered the white one).

    * User interface has a long way to go to become photographer friendly.
    — Changing the aperture in aperture-priority mode is inconvenient (dial only controls exposure compensation; changing aperture requires several button pushes).
    — Small fonts are difficult to read (especially ISO).
    — Settings like ISO, aperture, exposure time are not displayed in image preview, unless you go to the detailed view which shrinks the image to 1/4 size.
    * In low light, camera is slow to focus with my favorite Panasonic 20mm f/1.7; AF tends to hunt (Panasonic GF3 doesn’t do that).
    * According to some web reviews & my experience, sensor-based image stabilization on E-PM2 is not effective. At best, gives half a stop to 1 stop improvement. Some says it’s best to keep it off. That’s what I do, after finding a few blurry images that shouldn’t have been blurry based on shutter speed.
    * Clip-on flash makes it inconvenient to pocket even with prime lenses—Panasonic GF3/GF5 are a lot more pocketable.
    * JPGs at 100% view are disappointing in high ISO (very grainy). Raws are better.
    * Colors on LCD screen are way too warm compared to what I see in actual images on my calibrated monitor.

    The best features of E-PM2 are fast operation, fast AF in good light and best-in-class sensor. The images it produces are a notch above what I get from Panasonic GF3 in depth and clarity. On the down side, the user interface is clearly designed for the point-and-shoot user, not for the advanced amateur. Do I recommend E-PM2? If you get a good deal on the price (like how it sells these days—$450/$500 for the body/kit) and if you don’t mind its other, relatively minor, shortcomings, I do recommend it.



    After discovering the extensive menu system, I was able to solve my main gripes with the user interface. Now I can use dial for controlling aperture. I can control the degree of noise reduction. I can turn off warm auto white-balance. There are a thousand other customizations you can make, which makes shooting a lot more fun. I’m very impressed by what Olympus offers here. The camera is nearly as capable as OMD (the $500 more expensive, ‘pro’ model) in a much smaller package. A truly five-star solid performer! As for slowness of 20mm f/1.7 AF, I’d suggest checking out Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 (mine is on the way). It reportedly focuses a lot faster.

    Fantastic little camera with outstanding IQ, December 7, 2012
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I bought this for my wife and as a backup for my recently purchased OM-D E-M5. I continue to be impressed with the image quality that this tiny little thing can deliver. It uses the same sensor as my top-of-the-line OM-D, but weighs much less. When combined with the Panasonic 20/1.7, it easily fits in a jacket pocket.

    Honestly, I am hard pressed to distinguish the pictures that come out of this camera from my OM-D.
