OLYMPUS E-PL1/2 …WITH A TWIST

Posted: February 2, 2010 in Uncategorized

OK, here’s another possibility : the new Olympus m4/3 camera is almost out of the bag, with the ‘official’ announcement due shortly …probably tomorrow.

The visuals on the above are what we’d see if some rangefinder-styling were to be added to the body’s front central section. The good news for many will be both the low entry price for a genuine Olympus m43 model, and the fact that they’re not financially penalised for wanting it in a black finish !

Have to say, I find this an attractive-looking model that Olympus would do well to cover – this is a look that many seek, without huge expense. Yes, it’s plastic-bodied, but surely capable of great images, as it shares the same sensor as the E-P1. Price/availability tbc …but worth the wait, I’m sure.

Ideal then as a serious upgrade to LX3 image quality, at what’s very likely to be a very competitive price.
