The E-PM2 is a compact mirrorless digital camera featuring a 16.1 megapixel Micro Four Thirds size sensor and TruePic VI image processor to produce high quality still imagery and full HD 1080i video at 60 fps with notable low-light sensitivity to ISO 25600. A 3.0" 460k-dot LCD monitor is available for live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation, and it features a touchscreen design to provide a more intuitive means for applying camera settings. In-camera sensor-shift image stabilization is also available and helps to reduce the appearance of camera shake when working in low-light situations and with longer lenses.
The included M.Zuiko 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 28-84mm, making it a suitable choice for us in most shooting situations. It features MSC (Movie/Still Compatible) technology to provide near-silent operation that is ideal when recording HD movies. The lens also incorporates three aspherical elements into its optical design to help minimize aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range and to produce sharp, clear imagery. Also included is the M.Zuiko ED 40-150mm f/4-5.6 R lens, which picks up where the other lens leaves off and provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 80-300mm. It, too, features MSC technology for silent and smooth operation and integrates one extra-low dispersion element into its design to deliver high image clarity through the reduction of chromatic aberration.
