Re: Even the PM2

Yes, I have the E-PM2 and I agree it is very usable! I still think spending $100 more for the E-PL5 is probably worth it for the better controls and flip screen, but yeah you could take the minimalist option and go with a E-PM2. Absolutely!

In addition, in terms of lenses, I just read a review which suggests (without proving) that the new Olympus 25/1.8 more than holds it own against the by now famous Panasonic 25/1.4 lens I recommended above. The Olympus lens sells for $399.99 saving you about $125 over the Panasonic lens AND IT IS MUCH SMALLER AND LIGHTER. Check it out, if you are interested.

Though right now, if you live in the USA and also want the 40-150mm lens, the difference is $250.

  • E-PM2, 14-42mm II-R, 40-150mm R lens kit: $400
  • E-PL5, 14-42mm II-R kit: $500
  • 40-150mm R lens added on: $150.
