Olympus PEN E-P1

Today, I received the Olympus PEN E-P1 micro four-thirds digicam. The E-P1 continues a long tradition started with the first Pen camera released in 1959, the year of my birth. I’ve posted an unboxing set at Flickr.

The PEN E-P1 is by design a set of capabilities packaged oddly together:

  • The features are modern but the design retro
  • Lenses are removable, which is untypical of compacts
  • The quarter-frame sensor brings dSLR class to a compact camera

I’ll post more pics and even offer a review fairly soon.
