New E-P5 (and E-PL6) news roundup…


E-P5 stills review by Blunty

The main discussion around the new E-P5 was and still is the price. Robin Wong (Click here) posted a report about the Touch and Try Session with the Olympus E-P5 and wrote: “I have been monitoring the overall feedback and comments on the Olympus PEN E-P5, and many mentioned that they were taken aback with the rather high pricing. After all the E-P5 is a “Premium” camera, and it does have almost all the important features of OM-D E-M5.  Nonetheless, Olympus Malaysia did have special offers for the E-P5 pre-orders, with MASSIVE discounts given for bundling with the amazing Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm F1.8 and the new electronic viewfinder VF-4!!

Indeed the Black E-P5 superkit is now the most ordered MFt camera according to Amazon ranking (Click here to see the list).

More E-P5 news: Federico Cabrera (the OM-D photographer) is doing something artistic around the PEN E-P5 on facebook.com.

New E-P5 Olympus page.

Olympus launched a dedicated E-P5 website you can see here: http://www.olympuspen.com/. It’s a nice website but the only thing that I didn’t like and scared me a bit is the video announcement from the Olympus Group President. The problem is not the president. The speech itself is very interesting. And the Olympus President says a lot of interesting things. I am only surprised by the rather uninspiring “ambiance” chosen for an official product presentation. That “grey atmosphere”. It almost looks like a speech from a boring serious bureaucrat in a huge communist soviet building :)
