Less than six months after launching E-P1, Olympus released the E-P2 with even more power! New PEN is the world?s smallest 12.3-megapixel interchangeable lens system with In-body Image Stabilization.
This time Olympus additionally offers a stylish retro black metal body reminiscent of a traditional PEN camera, accessory port to accommodate the included detachable VF-2 Electronic View Finder or optional external microphone adapter EMA-1, a Continuous Autofocus (C-AF) Tracking System, two new art filters – Diorama & Cross Process, full manual control of shutter/aperture in Movie Mode and HDMI control of camera?s playback functions using the TV Remote when the camera is connected to an HDTV. Unfortunately, the built-in flash lamp is still missing.
The E-P2 comes with either the small and lightweight Olympus M. ZUIKO Micro Four Thirds lenses: 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 (28-84mm equivalent) or 17mm f2.8 (34mm equivalent) and will be available in December for – watch out! – $1099.99.
