E-P3 with kit lens for $379!

Share

The E-P3 has been announced almost two years ago and the price for the camera with kit lens was $899. And as you know digital stuff quickly looses the value and you can today there is a new price drop that pushes the price down to $379 at Amazon (Click here) and Adorama (Click here).

Of course this happens because the Olympus E-P5 is going to be announced soon (on May 10th according to TVsmith).

More US deals:
Panasonic G5 for $498 and leading the sales ranking at Amazon (Click here).
GX1 body for $249 at  Adorama (Click here).
GX1 with kit lens for $379 at Amazon (Click here).

Thanks anonymous source for finding the E-P3 deal!

(FT5) Specs: E-P5 is an “improved” E-M5.

Share

A trusted source told me that the E-P5 image I posted yesterday is definitely real. He confirmed that the E-P5 has the same image quality of the E-M5 because it uses the same sensor and same True Pic engine. But he also told me the E-P5 has a faster AF and better 5 axis stabilization system than the current Olympus E-M5. The new VF-4 external viewfinder will be announced the same day of the E-P5 and has 2,36 Million dot (it’s from Epson). The E-P5 also has built-in WiFi, something the E-M5 has not.
