Olympus E-P2 to also get external mic

Olympus' success to its first Micro Four Thirds camera should make its debut in as little as a week based on both official and unofficial news. A teaser page from the company is counting down to a "new PEN" launch on November 6th and has been accompanied by a leak showing the new camera. Still believed to be called the E-P2, the camera now appears to be virtually identical to the E-P1 on the outside but will come in black and have the option of a stereo mic attachment in addition to an add-on electronic viewfinder.

What's changed on the inside is still uncertain; the primary complaint regarding the original was its slow autofocus speed, but with a similar form factor only this, resolution and image quality are the most likely elements to change. The existing camera has a 12-megapixel sensor with 720p movie recording and stereo audio.

    Success "or" not!

    That word should be "successor".
