The Olympus E-PL5 is now shipping in Asia (see Amazon JP, Digitalrev and eBay). And that’s why we have the first two “Asian” E-PL5 reviews:
1) DC.watch (translation here). They posted some image samples taken with the kit lens, the body cap lens and a C-mount lens. For the reviewer the images are “top-class quality”
2) Itmedia (translation here). They are impressed by the OM-D image quality and touch panel operations.
3) Itmedia (tranlsation here) also tested the E-PM2.
And in Japan you can also buy the first E-PL5 and EPM2 Leather jacket (here on eBay). So how about availability of the new PEN cameras in EU and US? BHphoto says they will ship it from tomorrow but as we learned from the past this is just an indicative date and may change soon. Should ship in early November in Europe.
