(FT5) UPDATED -> Say Hello to the new E-PL1 MicroFourThirds camera :)

PREORDERS:
Preorder the E-PL1 at amazon.com!

Olympus next MicroFourThirds camera name is “E-PL1“. The “L” should stay for “Light”. It has an internal Flash, plastic body, same E-P1 sensor, and it is very easy to manage (it has some new special functions). The body comes in four different colors!
One of my best sources wrote:
I absolutely love the solid chunky feel of the model in my hands. You can really hold one in your palm the whole day and feel so good about it. That’s real craftsmanship for you.

AND 43rumors found the first pictures taken with the E-PL1!!!

but all pictures do begin with the name “E-PL1…”  and if you click on the thumbnails and you download the original picture…read the EXIF data :)

UPDATE: One of the leaked images has been taken with the Olympus 9-18mm lens?

a little bit of everything…

Sent from a 43rumors reader:
Here is another climbing video. However, this is the first one I have been able to use all of my manual focus lenses on. It is extremely hard to shoot the overhangs because they are shaded from the light. The F1.4 through F1.8 lenses that I have handle the low light extremely well.
The lenses I used are below:

Panasonic 20mm Pancake F 1.7
Sigma 30mm F 1.4 Nikon Mount
Canon 50mm F1.4 Canon Mount
Olympus Zuiko 50mm F2.0
Nikon 50mm F1.8 Pancake
Canon 35-70mm F2.8-4.0
Nikon 85mm F1.8
