Last month, Olympus lifted the veil on a trio of 12.3-megapixel Micro Four Thirds cameras, replacing both models in its PEN line and adding the small and light E-PM1. We already knew to expect an August ship date for the $900 E-P3, but now the company filled us in on its tilt-enabled E-PL3, which will be available in black, white, red, and silver when it ships in September. Priced at $700, the kit will include either a 14-42mm zoom or 17mm fixed lens, and will retail for a full c-note higher than its predecessor, the E-PL2. Olympus also announced the VF-3 Electronic Viewfinder (EVF), which will feature a 100-percent field-of-view, 90-degree rotation, and brightness and color temperature adjustments — though it sounds like that last feature could potentially leave you with off-color images if you mistake the EVF’s white balance for what the camera will capture. We’re still waiting on availability for the runt of the litter, but we imagine the E-PM1 will make its stateside debut soon — perhaps even with a price tag lower than its rather pricey, beefier siblings.
