    Only one kit option for Olympus E-PL2 so far. Hopefully, there will be more.

    Why would anyone consider buying the same old camera with one new feature! Sick and tired of these camera companies reselling the same camera with a different body and stating that it’s new. Feel sorry for people who buy these products! These corporate camera companies are killing the artistic value of photography “commercialism mainstream”!

    I laugh at the new GH2, EPL2, etc… (pathetic) there’s nothing new about these products from their previous models except a new button (these companies are funny, hahahahaa). Consumers are even funnier for supporting them!!!

      Nothing new? One new feature?

      The E-PL2 has gained:

      High Res LCD
      Faster Shutter Speed
      Remote Shutter Compatibly
      Higher ISO
      Dedicated function dial
      Faster, quieter kit lens
      Better Image Stabilization
      New Art filters with adjustable settings
      Better ergonomics

      Sounds like more then one new feature to me.

      • Ricky

        WOWWOWOW High RES LCD I better go out and sell my house (LOL)!

        All the other features should have been done a long time ago. Those other features don’t a make a difference. Bottom line, is the photographers artistic ability to create and compose art without these features. Pure nonsense these features for non artist and photographers!!!

          Obviously you don’t understand the value of a higher resolution screen. It is especially important when proofing your photos at an event where you cannot load them onto a computer to check their resolution. That said, the screen is not super high-resoution, I’d prefer the 920k from the E-5.

  • Zenora

    Ricky is right. Camera companies trying to cash in from poor souls.

  • Oly & Pan need to get together properly and offer their cameras/lenses in each others kit – right!

    EPL2 + 14/2.5

    (okay, dreaming again)
