Default Olympus Announces PEN E-P3 Camera

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.dcresource.com/news/newsitem.php?id=4333' target='_blank'>http://www.dcresource.com/news/news...tem.php?id=4333</a><br /><br /></div><p><img height="337" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1309429650.usr15670.jpg" width="600" /></p><p>It is a big day for Olympus here, as they launch a total of THREE new Micro Four Thirds cameras. The first is the leading PEN camera, the E-P3. This is a bigger overhaul than the "upgrade" that the E-P2 was. There is a new 12 megapixel sensor (with the by-now usual Olympus sensor-shift stabilsation), an upgraded AF engine with 35 points that is touted to be even faster than the phase detect systems used in SLRs, a very nice 3 inch OLED touchscreen with 614k dots (I still am not certain of the resolution yet), 1080i60 movie mode with manual controls, a popup flash handy for daytime fill flash, and a removeable grip when you want the camera to look sleeker. DCResource.com has a review up, so go check it out. I think it is looking very promising, and might even be an upgrade for GF1 users or photographers looking for something like the GF1. Ships in August at US$899 for the camera and a kit lens, with a choice of either the 17/2.8 pancake or the 14-42/3.5-5.6 zoom.</p><p>More Coverage:</p><p><a href="http://www.dpreview.com/news/1106/11063015olympusEP3preview.asp" target="_blank">DPReview.com</a></p>
