Price History

  1. I am a photography amateur enthusiast. My other cameras are a Nikon D5100 and a D600 DSLRs with a range of lenses (prime and zooms). I’ve started shooting film back in early 90s on an old Nikon SLR.I also own a tiny pocket Canon ELPH HS300 point and shoot, which I wasn’t really happy with. The pictures were rarely better than what I can take with my iPhone, at which point as small as the camera is, it’s too big.I wanted something compact that could still take the breathtaking pictures my DSLR is capable of, and I spent a long time researching the best option. The main contenders were mirrorless cameras with largish sensors (for the form factor).Against a Fujifilm x100: I have to say Fujifilm’s x100 (and the upcoming x100s) is a beautiful camera, I really like the retro look of it. It also features a great APS-C sized sensor on it, which makes for a great picture quality. The problem with this camera is the sluggish auto focus, which for a compact “walk around” camera is especially problematic (apparently the upcoming x100s is supposed to improve on this). It was also little pricey for what I wanted to spend.Sony RX100: Is a great little camera, which can take great photos. But I wanted something with a little bigger sensor and interchangeable lenses. You see I want to be able to invest the bulk of my money into lenses as no doubt the camera bodies become somewhat outdated every 2-4 years.And then I gave the Micro Four Thirds cameras a consideration. See the Micro Four Thirds is an open standard Olympus and Panasonic have created, where you can freely use all m4/3 lenses on any camera body. More companies are joining this alliance each month. As a result m4/3 cameras have the biggest selection of lenses of any mirorless camera competitor.It’s exactly what this industry has needed for a long time. For companies to put an open standard together. No more vendor lock in and price gauging on lenses. Also you can be sure there will be long term support for this system as there appears to be quite a surge in popularity. More and more wedding photographers for instance are switching to this system, because of the ergonomics offered by much smaller and lighter gear required for all day shooting, as well as the selection of some really outstanding lenses for a decent price.Just on this alone, the choice for me was clear. All I had to do now is pick a micro four thirds camera.I’ve never used an Olympus camera before, but I’ve met photographers who have praised these cameras in the past. I read some reviews and researched the specs. I wanted compactness, and no need for a swivel screen.This narrowed the choice for me down to an E-PM2:- It uses the same sensor as the top of the line OM-D so technically capable of capturing the same quality images.- It is small and light.I really wasn’t into the design of the camera, at first look I thought it was quite ugly, a more retro look would have been better, but that’s just my taste. I have to say the look of the camera is growing on me though.I elected not to get the kit lens, and I went with the 20/1.7 LUMIX “pancake”: Panasonic LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Pancake Lens for Micro Four Thirds Interchangeable Lens Cameras lens (immediately taking advantage of the open standard!)So my first impressions after using this camera for a week (sorry for the long intro):Wow! In fact I am so impressed that I am actually thinking about selling my DSLR gear completely. I was little concerned that maybe I wouldn’t like the native 4:3 aspect over the 3:2, but it turns out 4:3 is actually much more suited for portraits. In portrait mode it gives you more flexibility. Where it might lack is certain landscapes, but those can often be cropped to 3:2 without much loss in quality. I can’t tell a difference in picture quality between this camera and my DSLR.Pros:- Autofocus. The speed at which this camera can auto focus and snap a photo is astounding. Way faster than my DSLR. In fact I thought the tap the screen to take a photo was a gimmick, but with such a fast AF, I find I am snapping twice as many photos than I normally do, and they are all in perfect focus. I was totally cough by surprise with how good snapping pictures feels with this camera, because of its responsiveness. There is a certain quality tactile feeling you get when you snap photos almost at the same time you touch the screen. A feature I didn’t think I was going to use became my new favorite way of taking pictures. What’s also great about it, if you’re doing street photography, you don’t even look like you’re taking a photo. So your subjects are not distracted by it.- Image quality. I shoot raw. And I find photos have good dynamic range, which lets me do a lot with them when I post process in Lightroom. And I find even in low light I can take photos comparable to what I take with my DSLR.- Size. The camera is small and easy to cary, it fits in a jacket pocket, or a small bag. I can also now put it in my laptop case, and bring it to work with me.- Great UI As someone new to Olympus cameras, this was a concern. But I felt right at home with the user interface only after a few days of using the camera. I assigned the ‘fn’ key to my ISO settings, I shoot in Aperture Priority mode. Obviously this camera has much less dedicated buttons than the top of the line cameras, but I find E-PM2’s buttons are sufficient for Aperture Priority style of shooting I do.- m4/3 availability of great lenses, with more 3rd parties announcing new products each month, it’s truly exciting. Even things like pro cinema Black Magic camera coming out this year will feature an m4/3 mount. The adapters can be purchased for all sorts of lenses. In fact you can get a $31 C adapter and a CCTV lens RainbowImaging 35MM F1.7 TV Movie Lens + Lens Adapter for MFT M4/3 camera, fits Panasonic G1 G2 G3 G10 GF1 GF2 GF3 GH2 GH1 GH2, Olympus E-P1 E-P2 E-P3 E-PL1 E-PL2 which can let you create some very interesting effects/pictures. I’ve used my Nikon lenses on this camera and it works great. But the lack of focus peeking feature Sony cameras offer hinders this advantage somewhat.Cons:- None. Really, when it comes to price and what you get for it, I can’t think of a single negative to say about this camera.Would like to see improved:- Manual focus. I haven’t yet found the best way to take photos with adapted manual lenses. I have re-assigned my Rec button to let me zoom in. But its not ideal. Though this really can’t be counted against the camera of this price, it would still be nice if it offered something like ‘focus peaking’ Sony cameras have. I think there is a way to use one of the Art filters to help with focus but its not ideal.- It’s not a pretty camera. This might be just me. But would love a more retro (rangefinder look) at this price range. Like the OM-D without the rangefinder bulge would be beautiful. I went with the silver version. I would have liked the white version better if it didn’t have the weird colored tan grip pad.Conclusion:One of the best buys in the category. You are not only buying a great camera but investing into a great system with great lens selection. You are also supporting an open standard in an industry dominated by proprietary lock-ins and price gauging.Edit July 3 2014: I have purchased this camera at the introductory price $500 and it was a great deal then. At the current price, this camera is a no brainer. There is simply nothing on the market that can compete with this value.

  2. I’m a regular, amateur photographer. I use auto-focus mostly but am learning to take control of things myself. I bought a used D50 a few years ago and had lots of fun with it. I was mostly annoyed with its size. It was cumbersome in many situations but took really nice shots.This E-PM2 unit is half of the size and really easy to use. I received it the day before a 10-day trip back home to Georgia. I didn’t have time to read the manual before taking my first shot. I went through the menu to be sure I was using the largest file size and changed the default 4:3 setting to 16:9. Be sure to change that setting if you want widescreen shots!Snapping shots was a breeze and quite fast. The one-touch video button is great for catching 1080p .mov files quickly and easily without having to fumble through menu selections. No more missing the opportunity for a great video. The battery seems to last quite a while. I cannot report on entire deplete-and-charge cycle yet since I haven’t drained the battery completely yet before recharging.At $400 for this set (April 2014), this is a steal. I’ve yet to play with much of the features of the camera but am thoroughly happy with the purchase already. It’s a great step up from a point-and-shoot and its compact size is extremely convenient. I plan to update this review after a few more months of playtime.

  3. IF YOU ARE SWITCHING FROM POINT AND SHOOT READ ON! Made the switch from the point and shoot camp and let me state up front I am VERY pleased. My concerns were three-fold: ease of use, quality of pictures, and cost. This package seemed like a safe bet. The results? Ease of use – couldn’t be simpler. If you want to let the camera do the job out of the box you will get great results. As you ‘familiarize’ yourself with the menu and options, you will discover this little guy has a lot of depth. Quality of pictures – nothing short of amazing. We have a large garden full of plants which attract Praying Mantis, Bees, Butterflies and Humming Birds. The pictures are terrific – vibrant, sharp, tremendous detail. The kit came with two lenses, and the larger lens provides zoom results as if it were a 300MM lens. Again, terrific value and excellent results. Cost – for a little over $300.00 including tax I received the Olympus E-PM2 16MP camera body, two lenses, flash, cables, dvd, and strap. Wow.UPDATE: It’s been nearly two months and have taken 1000+ photos. The portability and convenience of this system is crazy terrific. I purchased a few items I would recommend – a fast memory card (class 10) which can be found for less than 30 dollars on line (get the fastest you can afford), a camera case (There are old fashioned style cases such as the PU Leather Camera Cover Case for less than 20 dollars that look awesome and provide quick and easy access of the camera. A small table top tripod (VANGUARD VS-82) and shutter control (NEWEER RM-UC1) for those times when you are doing macro or long distance zoom pics—both of which I obtained for less than 35 dollars and finally the MEIKE Automatic Extension Tubes for Macro shots costing around 25 dollars. A spare battery will round out your kit. For less than $475.00 I have a kit that can provide results which will rival most of what can be found by other ‘amateur’ photographers who spend 5 times as much and carry around 3 times as much weight. Once I find out how to post some of i=our shots I will do so. If you are on the fence, dive on it – you won’t be regret it!
