Image on top: The current [shoplink 23565]E-PM1[/shoplink].
I got this info a couple of weeks ago and another source confirmed that the specs are correct. So here is the new info about the new E-Pm2 (or E-PM3?) model. I have been told there is a compatibility between the new PEN cameras and smart phones. So probably a sort of remote control and photo sharing service like we will see on the Panasonic GH3. The E-PM has a touchscreen that should be the same of the [shoplink 29074]Olympus E-M5[/shoplink]. The sensor is also the same of the [shoplink 29074]Olympus E-M5[/shoplink] but the new PEN cameras will not have the advanced 5 Axis IBIS of the E-M5. The new E-PM2 will come in RED, White, Silver and of course Black. And it has a new grip. The camera with battery and [shoplink 33351 ebay]SD card[/shoplink] weights 280 grams.
P.S.: If you don’t care about getting always the newest stuff there is some nice deal on the current E-PM1. The Black camera with kit lens sells new for 299 Euro on [shoplink 33352 ebay]eBay Germany (Click here)[/shoplink]. US readers can find plenty of refurbished E-PM1 at Cameta (Click here).
