Olympus PEN E-P2 review

A cute small camera - similar to the Olympus Pen I own some 40 years. Quite responsive, and the EVF is very good (besides in low light conditions). The menu is quite simple but not intuitive. It handles white balance very good, even in incandescent light. Works great with Nikon lenses with an adapter.


Images are noisy, even at iso 100. Noise can be removed by post processing, but I was not expecting that noise level.
It's too expensive for what it offers.
The 14-42 kit lens is poorly built, resembling a P&S lens, not a SLR lens.
