I’ve been eyeing something in the micro 4/3rds system for sometime. After some reading of reviews and doing some side by side comparisons on DP Review, I decided on an Olympus. I found an amazing deal on an EP-2 with the 17mm pancake lens, for less than $350, it couldn’t be beat. Yes, I could have spent more and gotten the newer EP-3, but for what I wanted to do, the EP-2 was just fine.

So far, I have found the little Oly fits well into my ever growing arsenal of gear. It’s compact, but hefty. Sure it has it’s draw backs, technology isn’t perfect. The one that’s most noticeable to me is that it doesn’t shoot quite as fast as I would like. And it can get a bit noisy on the higher ISO range, but when you want more than what the cell phone camera can do, or even many of the point and shoots on the market, this is a nice option.

Here’s a few photos from my wee little Oly!

Taken in Kenmore, WA at Log Boom Park, on one of our first sunny days this spring.

And my angle on the Ballard Library.

  1. Wow that is quite a deal you got. I’m still waiting for my E-M5 to arrive. They seem to not be able to keep up with the high demand. I love how compact they are. I carry the E-PM1 + Lumix 20mm in my purse and use it a lot. Will invest in more lenses when they come out with some weather sealed ones.

  2. Yes, indeed it was quite a steal! I might get another lens at some point, like the 14-42, but the 17 really works for me most of the time.
