Olympus E-P1 Preview

Imaging Resource have got a preview of the new Olympus E-P1.

The E-P1 is a Micro Four Thirds format camera. Put simply, it’s a DLSR with the mirror removed to make a much smaller camera. The lenses are interchangeable and a 17mm f/2.8 and 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 will be available at launch in July. The sensor is the same 12.3 megapixel sensor used in the Olympus E-30 and E-620 DSLRs.

Also available will be an external flash (FL-36R and FL-50R will work as well), an optical viewfinder and adapters to connect OM and Four Thirds lenses to the Micro Four Thirds mount.
