Lets Go Digital has reviewed the Olympus PEN E-P2 Micro Four Thirds camera. The E-P2 is a minor improvement from the E-P1 with a new autofocus-tracking system and two more art filters. In addition there is a new external electronic viewfinder and stereo microphone.

Some key features for the Olympus PEN E-P2:
-12 megapixel image sensor
-3 fps
-3″ LCD screen
-8 art filters
-ISO sensitivity from 100-6400
-External electronic viewfinder
-HD movie mode 30fps 1280x720p

Lets Go Digital ends up giving the Olympus PEN E-P2 a “Recommended” rating. The reviewer finds the camera to be what the E-P1 should have been when it was launched as the first Micro Four Thirds camera from Olympus. The E-P2 is able to produce images of excellent quality, the new electronic viewfinder is great and the new AF-tracking system is also a good addition. Over the E-P2 seems like a great camera, but the minor changes might not be big enough for E-P2 owners to upgrade. New buyers on the other hand should look at the Olympus PEN E-P2 as a good choice.
