“As both a concept and a product the E-P1 is simply stunning. This is a bold and courageous move from Olympus and I for one feel confident that it will be rewarded by the market. The E-P1 is a refreshing change from all the ‘also ran’ DSLR black bodies and the boring oblong boxes of the compact world that look like mobile phones.”
