(FT4) E-PL5 will be priced at around 599 Euro/Dollars with kit lens (and there will be a “large kit”)

The source also “heard” that there will be a “large kit” version and it’s easy to guess that this will include the soon to come 15mm f/8.0 lens too! The major changes on the E-PL5 are the new sensor and a better ergonomy.

For my European colluegues: If you don’t care about getting the latest stuff and want to save some money there is a new bunch of refurbished PEN cameras at Olympusmarket. This includes for example:

P.S.: The E-PL1 is used by my friend Elena to tell you stories about the greek life (
