5 out of 5 eggsIncredible bang for the buck!

Pros: The Olympus E-PM2 is a very small, almost pocketable digital interchangeable lens camera with most of the same imaging prowess as the OMD-EM5. It shares the same sensor.) It also boasts sophisticated photographic controls under the hood once you unlock them, including bracketing, filters, super control panel and more.

Cons: Like most cameras in its class, it lacks a viewfinder; however, you can buy one separately if you don't like composing shots on the LCD screen (non-articulating, sadly). There are very few physical controls, which means you have to dive into menus to change most settings -- but if you have the patience, you can use Olympus MySets to customize it to your needs.

Other Thoughts: It's an incredible value, and in my opinion, the equal or better to most fixed-lens compacts, as well as many of its interchangeable rivals -- including some low-end Canon and Nikon DSLRs. Highly recommended, especially if you can get it near $200 with the kit lens.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well, but seems like a refurb

Pros: This camera takes great photos due to its size. The touch screen was pretty easy to use, and the menu system is easy to figure out if you read the manual. I wasn't bothered by the lack of manual controls that some reviews complain about. It's not a *small* camera, except in comparison to DSLRs. Compared to the other models in the lineup like the E-PL5 and the OM-D, it's not much smaller. For the price, it's a great deal, especially with the Eye-fi card.

Cons: My unit arrived with dark smudging on the white thumb grip in the back and to a lesser extent on the grip in front. When I booted it up the language was in Japanese and it seemed like the settings had been customized since pressing buttons didn't do what the manual said they should. Resetting it to factory settings fixed that issue. Finally, the unlock button on the included lens doesn't seem to actually lock the lens in the closed position.

Other Thoughts: Despite the cosmetic and other issues, I'm pretty happy with the camera and it seems to be fully functional so I've decided not to try to get it replaced. If I had to purchase again, though, I might consider getting the E-PL3. It's a generation older but has an articulating touch screen and goes for around the same price. The overall size difference between the two is not significant.
