Olympus E-PL2 is officially announced (12th M43rds camera so far)
And now that we have dispensed with 42 (!) new mass-market P&S cameras, it is time to focus on the (probably) two most interesting (so far) cameras, starting with the 12th Micro Four Thirds digital camera, the Olympus E-PL2 [13th if you count the AG-AF10X camcorder].
The camera will use the new MSC (movies and stills) kit lens, not to be confused with the original 14-42mm Micro Four Thirds lens.
The E-PL2 with the 14-42mm lens is available for pre-order at Amazon for $600.
