Really, really nice… In my brief tests I found the E-PL1 to be high on exactly what we’ve all been looking for in a micro 4/3s.

Olympus E-PL1 – Josh Rubin – Cool Hunting MAR2010

Our affinity for the Olympus Micro Four Thirds line is no secret. After taking the EP1 for a test drive last October, we were impressed with its sophisticated functionality and small profile. The latest model in the PEN line, the E-PL1 announced today, picks up where its predecessor left off. Adding a much-needed built-in flash and a slew of admirable interface tweaks, it also all comes in a more user-friendly—not to mention cheaper—package.

EISA States: "The Olympus PEN is an elegant camera with an appealing retro design. The camera utilises the new mirror- and prism-less Micro Four Thirds system, which allows the E-P1 to be very compact and lightweight. Besides the compact Micro Four Thirds lenses, users can fit existing Four Thirds, OM and Leica M mount lenses to the body via an adaptor".
