Agreed - a pretty crappy loud mistake.
There's a preview etc on DPReview now.
IMO the camera is a good concept, there is an optional optical VF.
I hope it sells, otherwise the major makers might not produce a similar
concept camera.

Beats the hell out of me! Have they never heard of a "Focus Group"?
A single focal length lens? Where's the need?

Looks like it's made to compete with the Sigma DP-1 and/or DP-2, neither
of which seemed to fill a niche that was crying out to be filled.

It might also have a message but I didn't have the patience to find
out. :-(

It seems to have escaped you that the Olympus PEN is an interchangeable-lens
camera based on the Micro 4/3 system, which means that it can use any 4/3
system lens, any lens that is adaptable to the 4/3 system (which among
others includes just about the whole Nikon range), and in addition can use
lenses such as those for the Leica M system that require a flange distance
too short for any SLR.

You can skip the intro.


Yes, that's what I noticed as well, but you /still/ get the music. So I
switched away from the site. Style over content, no thanks.
