More Olympus E-P5 hands on reports and official JPEG samples
Since we finalized last night's Olympus E-P5 announcement round-up, seven more hands-on reports and official Olympus JPEG samples (via PB) were posted. We added them to the aforelinked post, but since most people have better things to do than version-control our blog-posts, we are including the new hands-on reports right below as well...

The Olympus E-P5 pre-orders are $1000 for body only and $1450 with the 17/1.8 and VF-4 at Adorama et al. Needless to say, there are plenty of competing options at $1000, so this price is probably targeting early adopters and fans of this particular design. For example, if one was lucky during today's Panasonic M43rds lightning deals, they could have ended up with three Panasonic M43rds cameras and three lenses for around $1000!
