Despite widespread confusion about this model when it was first launched in late 2009 -- why would Olympus charge $300 extra for a camera that's barely different from its predecessor? -- it has legs and remains Oly's flagship mirrorless model. It's geared more toward serious or enthusiast users than the smaller, more streamlined E-PL1, though it's really just a matter of interface and handling. Image and video quality are almost indistinguishable. To us, it doesn't really seem like a worthwhile purchase, but there have to be at least a few users out there who need a relatively compact camera with a dSLR-esque control scheme and interchangeable lenses. Note: The E-P2 configuration on this page comes with a 14-42mm lens. A configuration with a 17mm lens is available as well.
