Latest edition in the PEN range

The new model arrives in an eye-catching black finish, and sports a range of new features aimed at extending the functionality of the device.

The EP-2 feature an accessory port on the model’s rear, which offers support for both the new electronic viewfinder, a feature requested by a range of customers, while also offering support for an external microphone.

The EP-2 also see the addition of AF tracking, allowing the photographer to automatically track a moving subject and also memorising subject data even when it leaves and re-enters the frame.
