Olympus PEN EP-3 in the flesh, coming soon!

We’ve got some hands-on time with the upcoming Olympus PEN EP-3 back in Hongkong and based on some very reliable sources, it will eventually land in the Philippines this October.

Olympus did a lot of upgrades on this new version and, based on initial impressions, performance and image quality has greatly improved.

I promised the reps not to share any more details except for the release date in the Philippines (which is like 2 weeks from now). Will post an update once we get official word (like pricing, lenses and availability).

I asked the local guy in HK how much it was selling there and he gave me a figure of around Php40k, which includes the kit lens.

    After the New 5N and Nex 7 was announced, I suddenly lost all interest in any other evil cam. Especially smaller sensor ones like m4/3s.

    what’s good about olympus is the classic design and durability. you can see a lot of film photographers roaming around luneta using olympus 35 rd.the model is almost 4 decades old but still functional
