Olympus E-P2, Is It Worth It?

Was at LowYat Plaza earlier and there were some promos going on for compact point-and-shoot. The show stoppers were none other than the newly launched Olympus E-P2 and Lumix GF-1. Didn’t enquire much as I was just passing by. If I remember correctly, the EP-2 is retailing for RM3,900 while the Lumix GF-1 is RM3,200. Since when it’s ok for a point-and-shoot camera to break the RM3K price barrier? No matter, there’s no way in hell I would pay anything more than RM3K for a compact. Regardless how great they might want us to believe it to be. Sorry.

    No way. What’s the big price about? What functionality is worth that money?

    The camera’s body is totally identical other than a new accessories port. That’s where the new viewfinder attaches itself. It comes with the same kit lens as EP-1. So basically, you’re paying the extra for a damn viewfinder and a black coat of paint. 🙂
