The Olympus E-P2 is Back in Black

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 E-P2


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.
