Compared to... Olympus Pen Digital E-P1

In order to confirm that the E-P2 is behaving consistently with the E-P1 we have shot our standard studio scene.

Studio scene comparison (JPEG)

This is our standard studio scene comparison shot taken from exactly the same tripod position. Lighting: daylight simulation, >98% CRI. Crops are 100%. Ambient temperature was approximately 22°C (~72°F).

Olympus E-P2 vs. Olympus E-P1

Camera settings:

  • Olympus E-P2: Olympus 50 mm F2 Macro lens (@F6.3), Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/SHQ, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Standard), Self-Timer

  • Olympus E-P1: Olympus 50 mm F2 Macro lens (@F6.3), Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/SHQ, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Standard), Self-Timer
Olympus E-P2
Olympus E-P1
7.7 MB JPEG (4032 x 3024)
7.6 MB JPEG (4032 x 3024)

The results are about as conclusive as things get in camera testing - the output from the E-P1 and E-P2 are as close to identical as it's realistic to get with two shots taken several months apart. And this is no bad thing, given how impressed we've been with the E-P1's JPEG output. It's sharp without being over-sharpened, detailed and offers good color rendition. At low ISOs the results are as good as you'll get from all but the highest-resolution DSLRs.

One of the most weirdo designs in any camera: A RECESSED MODE DIAL!

No wonder it was NEVER discussed or even shown in a photo here in this review or any other endorsed review... it is an EPIC FAIL.

Otherwise, a very good and capable camera.
