Is E-PL2 + 20mm/1.7 a good combo?
Aug 25, 2011

I'm looking for a mirror less camera right now and my main concern is great low-light performance (with AF) that is also at the same time, affordable.

Given the choices between Panasonic, Olympus, Samsung, and Sony:

Panasonic - Seems that their bodies are nicer built and nicer looking (subjective) that the PEN-L but they lack IBIS which is what I would want.

Olympus - E-PL2 looks to be the best one out of the bunch considering the EP3 is out of my price range and the E-PL3 doesn't look like it'll be a major improvement over the E-PL2. The E-PL1 isn't that much cheaper than the 2 so might as well go for the newer one.

Samsung - Ummm....nah.

Sony - The best sensor by far but doesn't have a fast prime yet.

  • So given that, having the fastest (affordable) lens + IBIS would give me what I need right?

  • Is there any problems with using a Panasonic lens on an Olympus body?

  • If not the E-PL2, any other recommendations?
