I recently purchased a camera - an Olympus Pen EP-1 Micro-four thirds in Broadway, a popular electronics store in Hong Kong. For a price of HK$6,740, the bundle includes the body, a 14-42mm lens, an 8-gig SDHC card, a tripod, a LowePro bag and and Adidas bag as a freebie.
The camera's main attraction, aside from its oh-so-cool retro styling, is its micro four-thirds format. It uses a sensor similar to a DSLR but it doesn't have a prism inside, hence the size is compact-ish and svelte.
The EP-1 has an effective 12 megapixel resolution.
