    Ken Tanaka's Olympus E-P1 PEN Review

    "Sentimentality aside, the main practical question for most people is whether or not Olympus's new PEN is a serious camera and not just a retro-styled toy. My answer is yes, the E-P1 is an earnest and versatile camera that can be fun to use. But it's also a camera with a few noteworthy shortcomings..."

    I didn't like what he said about Olympus and firmware updates. I for once am already eager for Oly to release some small fixes.

    HI Rafa
    I think that remark was rather unfair - Olympus certainly do firmware updates, although they mostly seem to be 'fixes' rather than 'features'.

    Just this guy you know

    For reference this is what he said...

    "I'd like to expect that Olympus will fix this with a firmware update but Oly aficionados tell me to expect such a fix at about the same time that chickens grow lips. "

    Heaven knows where this stuff comes from or who the so called Olympus aficionados he is quoting are...

    Best regards, Terry.
