Review summary from DPReview
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.
Scoring is relative only to the other products in the same category.

Sample images for Olympus PEN E-P2
The Olympus E-P2 is a 12.3-megapixel interchangeable lens camera, and it blends the high-quality still images of a DSLR with High Definition (HD) video, stereo Linear PCM audio recording and in-camera creativity - all inside an ultra-portable, easy-to-use body. The E-P2 also brings a twist to the PEN lineup: an accessory port which accommodates the optional VF-2 electronic view finder or optional external microphone adapter (SEMA-1). This listing includes body, battery, charger, memory card, and neckstrap.

The E-P2 shares the same ponderous menus as the E-P1. That's unfortunate but in reality you only have to wade through them until you have the camera set to your preferences. After that, all the vital options are available on the quick menu. The buttons and dials are a bit fiddly. The control wheel/button combination on the lower right is too easy to turn/press without meaning to--you can turn it off. The top right wheel is not in my favorite shape or placement but it's usable. Buttons are close together. The wrong one is easy to press when you have large thumbs. Those are my nitpicks on both the E-P1 and E-P2.
But both cameras have lots of good points as well. Since the E-P1 has been around for a while, I won't dwell on the features the two cameras share. You can find reviews of the E-P1 here at Amazon and more technical reviews online. The biggest difference is the electronic viewfinder availability for the E-P2. The EVF gives a good, big and bright view of the subject matter. It also allows the user to fill it up with all manner of shooting information. You can put so much stuff in the viewfinder it can interfere with seeing the subject. I prefer a clean viewfinder and this can be problematic. In order to remove all the information from the viewfinder, you also have to remove it from the rear LCD (which cannot be activated at the same time as the viewfinder anyway). That means you aren't able to tell at a glance what the camera settings are. It's better to just accept some information overlay and try to ignore it as you shoot or do a lot of button pushing while you eye is on the finder. Since I prefer eye level shooting to LCD viewing, I'm willing to accept the EVF's shortcomings. Fact is, most of the time I prefer using prime lenses with their appropriate accessory optical viewfinders with both the E-P1 and E-P2. When using long lenses or zooms or adapted manual focus lenses, the EVF is pretty much a necessity.
I really like the E-P2 and the entire E-Pen concept. Picking up a second body at a bargain was a great surprise.
