Olympus PEN E-P2 review

The results from the PEN E-P2 are excellent, as good as those from the E-620 or E-30. This makes a great second, small camera for serious DSLR users that can be carried easily.

The 14-42 kit lens performs well, but the Panasonic F1.7 20 mm micro four-thirds lens is sharper--a must have, which allows this camera to shoot without a flash in most situations, including night shots. The electronic viewfinder works very well in bright outdoor light.

As reviews have noted, the focusing speed is slightly slow, so it is not suited for sports photography.

I have used it with the adapter, shooting with regular micro four-thirds lenses, and the results are excellent. I'm looking forward to the release of the new 14-150 mm micro four-thrids lens.
