The E-PM2 was announced 8 months ago, which means according to the usual timelines, it'll be seeing a replacement in 4-6 months. I've had mine since January, and it's been a good camera overall, but there are a good many things, minor and not so minor, that could stand to be improved. Here are my list of suggestions: Electronic shutter. So far no Olympus camera has this, which is unfortunate. Truly silent shooting is a valuable feature in many venues, and the ability to avoid shutter shock on many lenses translates directly into improved image quality. Screen. The 16:9 3" screen is not a good fit for most photographers. A 3:2 or better yet 4:3 3" screen would be a considerable improvement when it comes to image review. Buttons. I realize that there are oodles of features in the Pen, but especially now with the touchscreen being standard, there's no good reason to have a dozen tiny buttons scattered across the camera's backside. I have small hands and even I have a hard time manipulating many of them. A dial that doubles as a 4-way controller, plus 3 or 4 buttons on the top or right side really ought to be sufficient. Menus. The current menu structure is appalling, and a major turn-off to new users. What the next generation of Pens need is a major reorganization to bring the significant settings to the fore and to hide or eliminate the less significant ones. The best solution would be to allow saving/restoring settings off of an SD card. Add to Olympus Updater the ability to configure the 'expert' settings (hidden by default on the camera), as well as a help mode to describe in detail what each does. Materials. The E-PM1 felt sleek and solid. The E-PM2 far less so. The camera has grown slightly and the switch to polycarbonate for the top plate and other areas makes it feel distinctly cheaper compared to its predecessor. New pancake lenses. The Pens, especially the Pen Mini, are popular in large part due to their size. A better collection of pancake lenses would substantially improve that argument, and I think reinforce sales. The 17/2.8 is not a compelling option being pricey, not particularly fast, and not particularly good. A redesigned 17/2.2 or 20/2.2 pancake in conjunction with a 45/2.8 pancake in the $200-300 would change the equation considerably. Bonus points if the kit 14-42 is replaced with a smaller non-collapsing sort like the Panasonic 14-42mk2. Built-in EVF. Okay, this is strictly pie-in-the-sky, but a built-in EVF, even of middling resolution (think VF-3) would make a lot of folks very happy. Of course, additions like focus-peaking and WiFi are pretty much a given considering what the E-P5 and competing Panasonic models have added, but even a few of the items listed above would make for a considerable upgrade in my book.
