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.
“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 :(
