Okay, so CNET is reporting that various lucky photographers are getting the Olympus PEN E-PM1 for free as sort of their marketing device/community art project … but the photo above is captioned as “Olympus is giving away more than a thousand E-PM1 camera kits, like these kits gifted in New York City.”
Um. This. Looks. Shopped. Olympus, I think we’re thinking “pics or it didn’t happen” but this totally DID NOT HAPPEN.
It’s not as pretty as the PEN 3, but at the lower price tag, I’ll take it (into my birthday wishlist). A girl will dream! Mini-Pen it is.
“Olympus just announced the new PEN E-P3, PEN E-PL3, and PEN E-PM1. Why so many, you ask? Well, this is a full range of M4/3s cameras in various sizes – the granddaddy P, the “light” PL, and the mini PM. The E-P3 costs $899 with 12.3-megapixel Live MOS Image Sensor and 14-42mm lens. Only the E-P3 has been priced but here are some specs on the other, smaller cameras. In all, we’re looking at a fairly complete family of M4/3s cameras with big boy chops.”
Dammit! Just when I thought I would save enough money for the PEN 2, this comes along and tempts me! Technology, you suck sometimes with your currentness.
$1200+ geeeeezus hot damn, I’m still saving for an Olympus PEN :(
