Olympus EP-2 Coming In January 2010?


Rumored to be coming in January 2010 at €950 (US$1,412,  RM4,810) with 12.1 megapixel, AF tracking, an electronic viewfinder, a black color option, 3fps shooting, a 720p movie mode – but still no built-in flash. Okay, I think I am missing something here. Other than the new electronic viewfinder, what else could’ve yanked the price up so much? Olympus EP-1 was about RM2,700 at launch. Why is this RM4,810?

    I’m puzzled by the same thing. What’s so state of the art about it

    With that price. Won’t one just get a proper DSLR instead? Then again, quality vs. portability again. Then again, again … those who go for this would most probably be using it as a secondary cam.

    I would’ve snatched a full scale DSLR instead, no doubt. Maybe olympus had just pushed the electronics frontier. Soon, they’ll furnish the product with mechanical & optical.
