Recently I reviewed the Olympus PEN EP-2 on The Phoblographer, and was quite impressed with this micro 4/3rd camera for street photography. Little do I know that about a week later, Olympus announces their new PEN EP-3 along with their new Zuiko 12mm f/2.0 Lens (24mm equivalent). From the looks of it, the camera looks great with an all-metal redesigned body, a reengineered autofocus system, a 1080p video mode, with a nice OLED touchscreen in the back. Sources show it will cost around $900 and will be available for purchase in August. Make sure to check out their full press-release here.

Olympus will also be holding a special three-hour Olympus Tech Thursday on their Facebook page from 12-3p.m. PST (3-6 p.m. ET) www.facebook.com/getolympus where Olympus spokespersons be answering a variety of PEN questions from fans and will be sharing additional new PEN content.
