Oympus today announced a bevvy of new products in its interchangeable-lens Micro Four Thirds lineup. Headlining is the compact, snapshooter-oriented Olympus Pen E-PL8. The company also announced a trio of lenses—a 30mm f/3.5 Macro, a super-fast, low-light specialist “normal” focal length 25mm f/1.2 Pro lens, and a superzoom 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom—and the Olympus FL-900R, a high-intensity, weatherproof, wireless flash.
When you see the Olympus PEN E-PL8, you can’t resist the urge to pick it up and hold it.

The flip touchscreen monitor provides easy operation, and the powerful in-camera creativity tools let you express your individual style. It doesn't just take great pictures. It makes an impression.
STYLE THAT GOES ANYWHERE
The PEN E-PL8’s premium materials and finishes, from the leather grain to intricately-textured dials to the brushed aluminum, turn this beautiful camera into a high-end accessory. Every inch of the E-PL8 has been thoughtfully considered, like the modern rounded corners and the embossed Olympus PEN logo. Even after hours of capturing friends and family at a wedding reception, this lightweight, compact camera will feel comfortable in your hand.
EASY TO USE
The PEN E-PL8 has a unique flip monitor that’s also a touch screen. All of the primary functions are in one place – right at your fingertips. Of course, what’s an overnight trip, week-long vacation, or dream honeymoon without selfies in cool locations? The PEN E-PL8 automatically shifts into Selfie Mode when the monitor is flipped down. Sophisticated imaging technology ensures spectacular-looking selfies, even in low light or at night.
