The E-P1 now has the same price as the E-PL1

Curious: The Olympus E-P1 has now the same price of the Olympus E-PL1 :)

I don’t know if all this price drops have to do with the upcoming Sony mirorrless camera announcements..probably not. But fact is that many MicoFourThirds stuff has the lowest price ever!

The Panasonic 14-140mm price dropped under $800 for the first time ($788.95)
The Panasonic 45mm has also the lowest price ever seen on amazon ($817.85)
The Olympus E-P2 now for $998.95
The Panasonic GF1 with 14-45mm Lens for $754.45

Next detailed Olympus 9-18mm review on quesabesde

The spanish website quesabesde tested the new Olympus 9-18mm lens (google english translation).

Their sentences in short:
- surprised by the smallness of their size, both length and diameter (but it becomes very long when you are at 9mm)
- fast autofocus (compared with older Olympus MFT lenses)
- 9 mm shows a significant distortion
- best results working with an aperture of f/8
- almost no vignetting
- moderate CA (Chromatic aberration)

Reminder:
Worldwide shipping starts on April 23!

Preorders:
Amazon US / Adorama / BHphoto / Amazon Japan / Amazon Germany / Amazon France
