    I've been gone for a while because I hardly ever touched my E-PL2 after getting my FujiFilm X-PRO1..

    However, I still love the Micro Four Thirds format, so picked up the E-PM2! :biggrin:

    It's really small.. even making the 20mm pancake lens look big!

    Here's are some photos!

    Nice! I love the minis in white.

    From an X-Pro1 user, what do you think?

    :cool:  A tiny body with a mighty sensor. Now you need the 15.

    My battery is still charging, so not sure how it is yet, but it is really small, even smaller than my E-PL2!

    Which will allow me to carry it around when I go to class, or go to the bars!

    I do know for sure, the autofocus will be faster than my X-PRO1 :tongue:

    Anyone have a comment on sharpness? I have not used an E-M5 or E-PL5 but if I had to guess my E-PM2 does not lack the AA filter like the E-PL5.

    Just got mine yesterday and I haven't got all the settings just quite right. Anyone have any pointers on custom settings. I'm also just shooting in jpg, as I still have lr3.6, and the epm2 Raws are not supported. I'd be intersed in knowing too. I was hoping it would have been the same as the epl5

    That AA filter rumor on the E-PL5 ended up being not true. The E-M5, E-PL5 and E-PM2 all use the same (or extremely similar) light AA filter.

    absolutely loving my E-pm2 so far. IMO, it is the best m43 body at the moment as it is considerably smaller and lighter than OM-D and even E-Pl5. And IBIS is functioning normal compared to E-PM1. Also, HDR feature is fantastic, not even OM-D has such very useful function.

    I retract my earlier comments in another thread about the date/time reset. It happened once (like Amin said) and not again after that.

    However, I don't find focus lightning fast on the 14/2.5. I wonder if I need a FW update for the lens? It's merely 2x quicker than 14-54 II. Which is to say, not that impressive.

    Couldn't hurting and seeing if the latest firmware for the 14mm improves things. I tried the 14mm on my GF3 and G2, and think the lens AF pretty fast and I am on the latest firmware.
