The really hot camera release lately is the new Olympus EP-1, a Micro Four Thirds System camera. It is not the first Micro Four Thirds camera, that title belongs to the Panasonic G1. However, it is the first Micro Four Thirds camera that is truly diminutive compared to a DSLR. A camera with a DSLR camera sensor and interchangeable lens. It is a dream camera for many DSLR users, a compact camera with image quality comparable to many DSLR.
It is a hot selling camera obviously and is out of stock in most shops. I was lucky to find a kit with the 17mm pancake lens. The battery has just been charged. It is late tonight, I’ll start doing some test shots tomorrow. I will be writing a full review on this camera, so be patient! In the mean time, I have taken some shots of my new EP-1.
