Olympus Pen EP 1 camera a hit at PMA
I have to admit, when I first heard that Olympus were releasing a new digital SLR, the 'Pen', I was less than stunned with excitement. What sounded like an expensive hybrid, based on the micro-four thirds format, isn't something I could see a lot of demand for.
However, at last weekend's PMA show in Sydney, I got to see one, and I have to say, I was very impressed. The camera just oozes the style and sophistication of a bygone age of photography.
Available with either a single lens kit (including 14-42mm lens) and twin lens (with additional 17mm prime lens), prices should start around $1400.
This camera is going to be VERY hard to source at first. Luke-warm reception by most vendors...guilty...meant that Olympus haven't ordered big, so stock will scarce.
We'll post pricing and availability information as soon as we have any updates.
