Olympus E-P2 vs Panasonic GF1

FacebookShare

ePhotozine compared the Olympus E-P2 and the Panasonic GF1. They again forgot to mention the Olympus E-P2 in Body IS advantage (they forgot it also when they made the E-P1 vs GF1 comparison).

Their conclusions? In short: the Olympus E-P2 wins but the Panasonic GF1 is cheaper.

    I simply cannot believe! Not to mention the greatly different focusing speeds in the verdict?!

    On rare but important occasions needing fill light, the Panasonic’s flash is a material benefit also. Pricing in US is close if one assumes a EVF addition to the GF1. In that case, the EVF resolution comparison heavily favors Olympus, allowing composition and focusing, not the just the former.

    kesztiĆ³: As an owner of both the E-P1 and the GF1 (both with the Panasonic 20/1.7 lens) I can confirm that the difference in focusing speeds is quite small, and ultimately irrelevant in real-world shooting. It is something the media has exaggerated greatly.

    That said I never use my GF1 anymore; the shots I got out of it weren’t great due to camera shake. The E-P1 gives me over 95% sharp shots (by actually count) whereas the GF1 only gave me 74% sharp shots. The IS is a HUGE advantage.
