With the release of EP3 and soon EPL3 and EPM1, can't help to think that the 4th reiteration of the Pen and Pen Lite series are just around the corner considering how quick Olympus (so as Panasonic) to put new cameras on the market which could be either a good or a bad thing. The good is that there are improvements with the recent batch of cameras especially having a fast AF and an AF-assist lamp and the bad is that this sends a message that the cameras have short life-spans and the products are never finished and that after-thoughts in the development will mean new cameras in the very near future. And also, there's this lingering feeling that you're being deceived as a consumer that they could have put all the features in one camera but they decided to separate these features and came up with 3 different cameras e.g. EP3 has the grip, EPL3 tilting LCD, and EPM1 compact size. To what extent can Olympus push the Pen series further? And what will make a perfect Pen? I think the thing that Olympus has to address at the point is the noise-level after the AF speed.
