Through several of the past updates from the Micro 4/3rds camp, some have lamented the lack of chance in the subsequent iterations. However, pioneers Olympus release an update-worthy model with their PEN E-P3. The most glaring changes are seen under the redesigned body as a dual-core processor allows for razor quick focus thanks to internal adjustments of 120 times a second. From the exterior, a removable hand grip as well as a discrete pop-up flash ensure an enhanced user experience.The legacy of the PEN’s aesthetics are preserved and unlike other brands, Olympus has a powerful heritage to draw upon when going to the drawing board. To round out the features, a new built-in autofocus illuminator light helps with focusing with 1080i60 video recording. The PEN E-P3 with kit lens will release with a street price of $900 and is currently available for pre-order at various locations.
