First two E-M5 on eBay, new underwater housing and new review.


The E-M5 is now on eBay Hong Kong.

The new Olympus E-M5 is supposed to hit the stores in Japan in three days at Amazon Japan. But the first two cameras can be already bought on eBay Hong Kong (Click here, with international shipping). If you are not from Hong Kong please be aware that you have to pay import taxes. The Chinese website PChome (Click here for the translation) unpacked and reviewed the E-M5. As usual the google translation tool makes reading very painful but you can also look on the pictures only.

Olympus Japan announced that the new PT-EP08 underwater housing for the Olympus E-M5 will be on sale at the end of July in Japan for ¥112,350 ($1,360). There is also a new waterproof lens port (¥38,000 or $460) and also a port adapter for Four Thirds lenses (¥17,000 or $206). The maximum depth you can reach with the housing is 45 meter (Source: Olympus Japan / Via: The Verge).
