The standard 14-42mm kit lens converts to an equivalent of 28-84mm in 35mm terms. It provides a fairly wide angle for capturing landscapes, although wider optics are available.

Colours from the E-PM2 are bright and vibrant, without being overly saturated.

Art filters

Olympus is well known for its love of art filters, and the E-PM2 (along with the E-PL5) has the widest range currently available. You can choose to use art bracketing to shoot more than one filter at a time, too.
