UPDATED with one more review: E-P2 review at CameraLabs and Focus Numerique (and two new E-PL1 previews)

One of my favorite websites tested the Olympus E-P2. Click here to read the whole review made by CameraLabs! The most interesting part to me is when they talk about the E-P2 versus the new E-PL1: “There’s simply no getting away from the fact the E-PL1 includes the most important aspects of the E-P2 at a lower price and throws a flash in too.

One more E-P2 review has been posted by Focus Numerique (click here to read the google english translation)

UPDATE: One more review has been posted by digitalcamerareview.com.
