Only five months after the lauched of the much talked about E-P1, Olympus has announced it’s up-coming release of the E-P2. Featuring minor upgrades such as the addition of a port for a new high resolution electronic viewfinder (or external microphone), two new Art filters and a pearlescent black finish.
It also gains AF tracking and includes a new i-Enhance ‘colour boosting’ function. While it seems that the talk around the micro four thirds market very much shifted towards the Panasonic GF-1 when it was released in September. It’ll be interesting to see how the EP-2 will compare.
Available from January 2010, or pre-order here at Amazon. The E-P2 comes with a VF-2 electronic viewfinder and either 17mm pancake or 14-42mm zoom lens.
