Olympus Black PEN Camera Kit Available Soon

By August 31, 2010

Follow me on:

Olympus today has announced new Micro Four Thirds lenses and a new version of the PEN E-P2 that's all black.

Olympus is pairing the PEN E-P2's black camera body with an all black lens and flash unit in a PEN E-P2 black kit. The kit will be available in October for about $1,000. PEN E-P2 cameras are already available for sale. (Compare Prices)

Additionally, Olympus is announcing two new Micro Four Thirds system lenses. The M.Zuiko Digital Ed 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 lens (150-600mm equivalent) will be available in December for about $900. It is the world's smallest super telephoto lens, according to Olympus. The M.Zuiko Digital Ed 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 lens (80-300mm equivalent) will be available in November for about $300.

The PEN E-P2 is a DIL camera, giving it image quality similar to a DSLR camera but in a smaller camera body. I am planning to publish a review of one of the PEN models of cameras soon. Olympus' PEN cameras have won a 2010 TIPA Award.
