We pitch the Olympus E-P2 head to head with the Panasonic GF1...

Pros: Retro-styling, in-camera image stabilisation, low-noise image quality
Cons: Autofocus system not as good as competitors, no pop-up flash

Following on from the original Olympus Pen E-P1, the E-P2 is an all-round similar camera. There are some key differences however - the EP2 is only available in black and has an accessory port to the rear to allow additional accessories to be added. The primary of these is the new electronic viewfinder which comes bundled with the E-P2. Against its closest competitor - Panasonic's GF1 - there's not much to divide the two cameras, so we pitched them in a head to head.
