Introduction | Olympus PEN E-PM2 sensor performance | Olympus PEN E-PM2 versus competition | Conclusion

High-end sensor delivers field-leading image quality in an entry-level package

The use of Olympus’ top-of-the-line Micro Four Thirds CMOS sensor brings its entry-level PEN E-PM2 to a new level of image quality, allowing it to handily beat out all the competitors in its low-end price range. Add to that an ever-growing list of features that bring it closer than ever to matching Olympus’ step-up midrange model, the PEN E-PL5, and that means this new super compact hybrid shooter is a great choice for people looking to shoot sports or landscapes while minimizing their load.
