Great review.

I just bought an E-PM2 at a price too good to refuse.

I agree with everything in the review, specially about the lousy IBIS.

However, the E-PM2 has the 16 MPx Sony sensor, same as the E-M5 MkI, so very good compared with the 12 MPx one.

This is just a wonderful, tiny camera. Love it with my 14-42 EZ and f/1.8 25.

Nice find, I might have to try the hot shoe thumb grip, looks easy to remove for packing. Right now I only have the strap connected to the right side of the body, which dangles the camera sideways, but gives me a bit of a purchase with my right hand for taking photos. The camera is a bar of soap, great for slipping into a waist pack, slippery to use.
Try to cut a piece of bicycle inner tubing and attach it to the right side of the front of the camera with carpet tape (glue on both sides).

And a photo. Without a photo, it didn't happen.

Beautiful new wrist strap was a gift from a mate many years ago. Never suited any of my other cameras.

Ever since I gave away my old E-PL1 to @AJ68, I've kind of missed it. So, naturally, I found me a new copy. Mint, in principle. With the plastic 14-42. Same as my brother got.

Which just goes to show that I should not sell, nor give away, cameras that I like. If I don't have them in dupli-, or triplicate, like I had the K100D.

But now I have a nicer E-PL1 than my brother!
