Released a few weeks ago, the Olympus E-PL3 represents a third generation of E-PL Micro Four Thirds camera. Offered as a lower-cost and more beginner-friendly alternative to the E-P3, the E-PL3 will be available to consumers in September for $699.99 with either a 14-42mm zoom lens or 17mm pancake.
The new electronice viewfinder VF-3 accessory, compatible with the E-PL3 and most other Olympus Pen cameras, will cost $179.99. It offers Pen photographers the convenience of a viewfinder as an alternative to the E-PL3's tilting 3.0-inch display.
