Olympus Pen EP-3: a micro four thirds camera everyone will want?
I have always been a big fan of the Olympus Pen digital... from the very first retro EP-1 camera to the EP-2.
It's a great travel camera and has given me good service, producing some punchy pictures without adding weight to the suitcase when travelling light. And it feels like a proper camera (almost, dare I say, like a film camera).
Now Olympus is to launch the EP-3 (pictured). And first reports suggest that it will be better than ever.
Wired.com is certainly raving about it: CLICK HERE FOR REPORT

Finally, here are recent pictures I took in Snowdonia, Wales, and Rome, Italy, using a Pen EP-2 - they are now on Alamy.
