Worldwide E-PL1 price drops (BHphoto has it for $479!)

Share

Olympus UK (see ePhotozine) and Olympus France (see ForumOlympusFrance) announced price cuts on the E-PL1. It looks like those price cuts have been made worldwide. In US BHphoto now sells the E-PL1 for $479 (Click here). Add the item to the cart to see the real price!

I guess this is a move to be even more competitive with the Sony NEX cameras.

(Thanks E-P1.net for finding the BH deal)

(FT4) Panasonic to expand GF lineup over the next few months (dpreview forum)

A dpreview forum user (“prochembro“) have been asked by Panasonic to participate in a marketing survey. He asked Panasonic if they’re going to launch two new GF style models. The answer by a Panasonic engineer was: “It should come as no surprise that we’ve noticed the latest market trends and see what our M43 customers want. Given that, I cannot disclose any detailed info regarding your question. However, all I can say is that the GF line will expand and will be our main focus over the next few months.

We from 43rumors already revealed that Panasonic is working on a very compact GF model like the Sony NEX-5 but with much better ergonomy and usability. We have three important sources confirming that it will be announced during the next months (very likely by very early 2011). But we also believe that there could be a GF model with built-in viewfinder (click here to see the Panasonic patent).

In summary, the GH2 will be announced on September 21. The ultra-compact GF a few months after Photokina (between December-February) and than another more advanced GF model will follow (we don’t have any info now about that camera yet).
