BH marks some E-P3 kits as “discontinued”

Share

The well known US store BHphoto just marked most of the E-P3 kits as being “discontinued” (Click here to see the list). This doesn’t necessarily mean that the successor is coming but it matches the rumor we posted two weeks ago saying that new Olympus cameras are going to be announced within the next 2-3 months. Question is what’s coming?

Meantime, the E-PL5 is in Stock at Amazon and BHphoto. And so the E-Pm2 (Amazon and BHphoto). But the most sold camera at Amazon is the Panasonic GF3 (ranking here).

    I’d say E-PL5 effectively replaces the E-P3.

    My guess is the E-P5 will probably assume a higher spec role in the line-up when it comes, probs with the EVF a la nex-6.

      +1 the replacement is long here…

      The L in EPL was originally “Lite”, and the EP models sat higher in the range. You don’t leave a production line running to build higher range cameras with your worst sensor, no point in making it any longer.

      2 possibilities:
      1. EP dropped completely and higher spending customers are pointed towards the OMD range
      2. new EP model coming with the newer sensor, hopefully with EVF also.

  • Boooo!
