Olympus has announced an all-black kit for the E-P2 Micro Four Thirds camera. Not only is the camera body black, but the 17mm lens and FL-14 flash also come in black.
This will perhaps make the camera a bit more subtle for those who want to draw less attention. I know that I continually drew comments from random people on the street when testing the E-P1.
The blacked out E-P2 kit carries an initial retail price of $999.99 and should be available in October 2010. Check availability at B&H Photo.
Olympus has made available firmware updates for the E-P1, E-P2 and E-PL1 PEN Series cameras. The new firmware updates are designed to improve the auto focus performance for still and video capture in the PEN cameras. [click to continue…]
Rumors are stirring of a new Micro Four Thirds camera, an Olympus E-P2, which has apparently leaked out on Olympus’ China website. The image above is a supposed screen capture from the site.
The E-P2 bears a striking resemblance to the Olympus E-P1. The rumored official unveiling date for the E-P2 is November 5 or 6. No word of specs yet.
