    I have a E-PL2 and I read on the Olympus website that it supports up to 16GB flash. Is there anyone with a PEN camera that uses 32GB SDHC cards? I just bought a 32GB card but I don't want to open it if its not compatible.

    well on this Olympus website it says the E-PL2 supports SDHC and SDXC format cards, so if you card says either of those on it I'd say it'll work fine.
    My guess regarding the quoted 16GB limit - maybe that was the biggest SD card in production when the camera was released, and they didn't bother updating the site when the bigger cards came along.
    But the bottom line is if the camera supports the SDHC (or SDXC) standard, it should work with ANY SDHC (or SDXC) card.

    My E-P1 is fine with a 32GB card, which is the largest capacity SDHC. Since the E-PL2 supports SDXC as well, and SDXC doesn't even come smaller than 32GB, I'd suspect that it's almost a dead cert that it'll be absolutely fine with the 32GB card you have.
