5.0 out of 5 stars Quality versatile camera with solid retro feel., 9 Dec. 2013
This review is from: OLYMPUS Pen E-P2 + 17 mm Pancake Lens 4545350026387-(Description: Following on from the success of the Pen E-P1, Olympus proudly brings us the Pen-E-P2 -a compact camera with interchangeable lenses and a variety of fantasticfeatures. Featuring all the functions of its predecessor, the PenEP2 has a metallic black body and two extra art filters for additionalcreative effects.  In addition to its 12.3-megapixel sensor with micro fourthirds lens mount, the Olympus EP2 has an accessory port for h (Electronics)
This is a great camera both to hold and to use. It is very solid and quite heavy compared with small point-and-shoot cameras, reminiscent of quality film cameras of old, which makes it much more satisfying to use. It does not have a built-in flash but I find those so limiting. It has an accessory shoe to take any number of Olympus or after-market flashes although I find the sensitivity and anti-shake are good enough to shoot in available light much of the time.

I have both a 14-42mm zoom and a 17mm pancake lens. Both give excellent results but the camera is so compact with the pancake lens that I mostly use this: it takes fantastic sharp pictures and the focal length proves ideal on a surprising numbers of occasions. If a longer focus lens would have been better the quality is usually sufficient to allow quite tight cropping to bring the subject closer.
