Released January, 2009
The Pros:Interchangeable lens. HDMI output. Slick aesthetic and form factor.
The Cons:Low resolution 3" display (280k dots). High price. Very similar to the E-P1.
The Olympus E-P2 is a 12.3MP interchangeable-lens Micro Four Thirds camera with an optional 1.44 million-dot electronic viewfinder or external microphone adapter. It features AF tracking and 720p video recording at 30fps shooting.

It essentially combines the quality images of a certified DSLR with HD (high-definition) video, while over-stepping its predecessor (the E-P1) with the accessory port. Included also is Linear PCM audio recording, a 3” HyperCrystal LCD display, and an in-body image stabilization system that compensates for up to four shutter speed steps. Additional features include the ability to record to SDHC media cards (to accomodate large video files), Full Manual Control for the professional-level photographer, and a batch of intelligent technology (Face Detection, Scene Modes, etc) for the not-so-experienced photographer.

slick aesthetic and form factor
records video in 720p high definition
now includes a port for a high resolution electronic viewfider or external microphone adapter
compact and lightweight for such a powerful camera
built in image stabilization
automatic focus tracking - for movie and continuous shooting
low resolution 3" display (280k dots)
does little to address the issues found with the E-P1
