Olympus E-PL2

The Olympus E-PL2 was announced earlier this week at CES 2011.  As the name suggests, the Micro Four Thirds format E-PL2 is a follow-up to the popular E-PL1.

The E-PL2 features a 12.3MP sensor, max sensitivity of ISO 6400, 3-inch LCD (460k dot resolution) and Olympus’ signature Art Filters for creative photo processing in-camera.  The  E-PL2 should be available in January 2011 and ships with a 14-42mm kit lens for $599.99.  Check availability on Amazon.com.

Olympus E-PL2 Rumored for CES 2011

With CES 2011 coming up next week, the rumor mill is picking up for new camera models to be released at or around the show.  Near the top of the rumor list is an Olympus E-PL2 with a new high-res display, sensitivity up to ISO 6400 and a direct video record button.

If the above image is the real deal, it looks quite similar (if not a little sleeker) to the popular Olympus E-PL1, for which this new camera should serve as a direct replacement.  Let’s hope they add in a peppier autofocus too…
