I'm very happy to see the E-PM2's lighter approach to noise reduction at high ISOs compared to the E-M5.

The E-PM2 better than the E-M5 at high ISOs?????

Heresy!

(... actually it's looking not just better but MUCH better!)

Is the shutter mechanical or electronic?

I could not find this info in the review.

What is the focal length (35mm equivalent) of the lens?

Shame, a nice format having to become worse in order to become better...

A put-off for me, the site looks like an 'also-run' in spite of the new functionality and features. It's probably the kiss of death for visitors like me.

In reply to:

PaulSnowcat: Well... OK lens... Something like budget SONY 85/2.8, but brighter. But nothing special, as Four Thirds 50/2 was for example...
Olympus lost that precious ability to make unique lenses. Too bad...

I agree with Paul.

The real surprise is the amount of purple fringing in some shots. 4/3 lenses didn't use to have purple fringing at all.

Plus, the shallow DOF seems to be a problem for the E-M5's focusing system. Out of all portraits, only one seems to be clearly focused and sharp on the eyes. Some might say it's a photographer error but why should the dpreview testers be worse than the average photographer? After all, they use so many different cameras on a day-to-day basis.

IMO this is an average lens with slightly better IQ than a legacy lens but difficult to handle with AF.
