With Photokina coming it is no surprise that many announcements are reeling in. Olympus just Olympus announces the uber retro Pen E-PL8 Micro Four Thirds camera (pre-order here).
The PEN E-PL8, follows the Olympus line of retro cameras only doing it with more style. So this camera has quite a design dialog with the recently announced PEN-F. This leads me to think that Olympus is aiming to be a design and style oriented company. And specs may support this sentiment:
This Micro Four Thirds has a small 16.1MP sensor. Now, don’t get me wrong, 16MP is probably enough for everything you need, but it is smaller than competition, and offers no advance over the previous PEN E-PL7 . The PL8 also has the same 3-axis image stabilization and tilting LCD screen as the PL7.
