First preorder reaction: E-M1 most sold overall(!) camera at Amazon US!

12 hours after the announcement the Olympus E-M1 is the most sold (orders+ preorders) digital camera at Amazon US (Click here to see the ranking). The ranking includes all camera like compact cameras, Sony QX, DSRL and Mirrorless cameras. And you really don’t see it often an Olympus camera being more popular than a Canon or Nikon FF. And the 12-40mm lens is on second place of the Lens ranking (Click here). The rankings do change hourly but this is definitely a very good first result for Olympus. The E-P5 don’t even made it into the top 100 of the overall ranking when launched back in June. Just to say… :)

Honestly I wasn’t expecting such a good result.

Hot info and curiosity:
No more Four Thirds camera or lenses will be produced. Olympus officially merges MFT and FT into one system (DC.watch). Olympus were developing E-7 and E-M1 together….but they decided to commercialize only the E-M1… (DC.watch).
Olympus plans to release a wideangle zoom and super-telephoto prime in this nascent Micro Four Thirds ‘PRO’ range (Dpreview / ePhotozine).
