Olympus E-PM1

The recently-announced Olympus E-PM1 has been officially priced at $499 and will include a 14-42mm kit lens.

As a refresher, the E-PM1 is the smallest of the PEN series cameras.  It features a 12.3MP Micro Four Thirds image sensor, 1080i HD video capture and a sensitivity range up to ISO 12800.

The E-PM1 should start shipping in September.

Check availability at B&H Photo and Amazon.
