The first Olympus Pen E-P1 reviews appear on Amazon July 13 2009

1247505870933The first customer reviews of the vintage throwback Olympus E-P1 camera have appeared on Amazon. While there have been only 6 reviews to date, they are very positive, averaging 4.5 out of 5 stars. Some excerpts:

It is a little larger than I was hoping, but out of the box, the first results were incredible, RAW format on a par with my nikon d-90 RAW, requiring very little post-production.

This little camera makes me smile each time I use it!

Overall, this camera is a game-changer. By being able to carry it wherever, whenever, my photographic experience is taken to a new-level. Knowing I have a camera with DSLR IQ in my bag all the time without the bulk is a great feeling of freedom.

In short, while this camera looks like a point and shoot with an SLR-style sensor, in fact it is really more of an SLR camera crammed into a tight package. It's best suited for camera buffs who will deeply appreciate its size and high-quality images.
