Quick AF

Olympus’s Micro Four Thirds cameras are known for theirsuper quick auto-focus. Its Touchscreen reaction is fast and users are able toset focus by simply tapping on their subject, even when they’re not centered inthe frame.

Fast Burst and High ISO

Its 8fps capabilities allow ease and precise shots withmoving subjects. The PEN E-PM2’s ISO sensitivity can reach up to ISO 25,600 forlow light shots.
