From the Manufacturer:
16MP Live MOS Image Sensor
Featuring the 16 megapixel Live MOS sensor of the OM-D E-M5, the Olympus Micro Four Thirds flagship, the PEN E-PM2PM2, is optimized to maximize the performance of all mZuiko digital lenses in any shooting condition. Improvements to the sensitivity and read-out speed of the existing sensor makes shooting and Full HD movie recording possible.
TruePic VI Image Processor
TruePic VI Image Processor, designed specifically for the Olympus PEN, features Real Color Technology for improved color reproduction (especially colors such as emerald green, yellow, and gold) and color gradation. The faster processor also allows for a shorter recovery time between shots.
Proven Dust Reduction System
Olympus’ Dust Reduction System assures spot-free images, even if you change lenses. Every time you turn on the camera, the patented Supersonic Wave Filter silently vibrates, flinging and collecting dust so that it doesn’t interfere with the picture imaging at any time.
In-Body Image Stabilization
Say goodbye to blurry images. Olympus’ in-body image stabilization technology makes it possible to use any Micro Four Thirds lenses (or Four Thirds lens), from wide-angle to telephoto, for perfectly clear, crisp photos no matter what the shooting situation, even in low light!
For form, fit and feel. The E-PM2’s built-in grip allows for secure and comfortable handling of the E-S3.
Immediate Response Touch Navigation on 3 in LCD
The E-PM2 features a vertical bar touch navigation menu. The E-PM2 is designed to optimize the touch screen LCD and was introduced to operate the MENU display with a new simple operation instead of a mode dial. The E-PM2’s Touchscreen reacts quickly with the slightest touch and can focus by touch even if the subject is not in the center.
Live Guide and New Direct Live Guide Button
The E-PM2’s Live Guide system allows you to preview effects as you adjust them – before the image is even captured. With a simple touch, slide through numerous photographic effects, such as brightness, color saturation, blur background, etc. And now, it’s even easier to get to the Live Guide menu at the touch of a button on the top of the camera.
A convenient, fully automated feature that detects the scene and applies the best of six situations just by aiming the camera toward the subject. Backlight adjustments are automatically applied for Portrait and Landscape modes.

Fast AF with Face and Eye Detect
The FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) AF System is able to focus at an incredible speed and offers 35 separate focus points that are spread over nearly the entire sensor, which makes it possible for pin-point accurate focusing on small subjects wherever they appear in the frame. Selectable 3x3 groups within the 35-point area are especially effective when shooting active subjects.
