Review summary from DPReview

May 2010
Overall, the E-P2 is not a vastly different camera to the E-P1 but the changes that have been made have been well focused on making a really good camera into a better one.

Conclusion

A slightly revised version of the E-P1 sees changes in all the right places. A great JPEG engine, in-body stabilization, and the option to add one of the best electronic viewfinders we've seen combine to help it live up to its looks.

Reasons to buy

  • Excellent resolution with lots of detail
  • Appealing, bright and punchy out of camera results
  • Superb optional viewfinder aids stable holding and shooting in bright light
  • Comprehensive feature set and impressive level of customization
  • Easy to use, high quality video mode

Things to consider

  • Low resolution screen that's hard to see in bright light
  • Complicated menu system not that easy to navigate
  • No quick way to select AF point
