New Olympus E-PL1 reviews and first impressions

The Olympus E-PL1 action has picked up some momentum the last few days. Just now, hot off the e-inks, is a brand new review of the camera at Photo Review. Imatest measurements, E-Pen spec-comparison, samples, and more. As usual, we won't spoil their findings here.

Olympus fans will be pleased that the camera managed to get the attention of the gadget blogs. This time gadget-blog CrunchGear has published a short review of the camera. They follow the golden rule of reviewing - post a picture of kids or pets, and it makes you look like a monster if you complain about the review ;-)

Next up, a first look of the camera at Steve Huff Photo, with web-size samples.

And another first look, this time by photographer-author Kirk Tuck (thanks Jaladhi for the tip!) [NEW!]

And we close with an award, a RED DOT award for the Olympus E-PL1 (not to be confused with the Leica RED DOT!)

The E-PL1 with the 14-42mm lens is shipping in all three colors for its opening price of $600 as you can see at its stock status page.
