My first ever post please be gentle and vote for it. This is a very decent camera, if you know what it's capable of. Because of the interchangeable lens system this micro 4/3 camera can utilise a whole lot of legend lens ( old style manual focus lens) together with the in-built body stabilisation this will be awesome.

Good deal for an excellent camera

Lovely little camera, you won't regret picking one up at this price

Since there is no flash built in, you really need to spend another £150+ for the flash.

This model was offered with a free flash for little more, but this offer has now finished.

It's not a complete camera without a flash.

Hmm, I ordered but have received no confirmation and my login doesn't work. Quidco has tracked though, something not right here.

wow that a pretty good price considering when it was first debut it was selling for double that.

Isn't it a standard hotshoe connection? If so, you can pick a decent flash up for £50. Even less if you look around on Ebay

GREAT price. Heat added. Although it has no viewfinder or flash (either can be added via the hotshoe but not both) hence I went for the Lumix G1.

Good to see prices for big sensor compacts coming down

I guess they are getting rid of old stock now as they now have the near identical E-P2 which has the optional VF2 electronic viewfinder support.

Also available at Jacobs with 17mm f/2.8 pancake prime with VF1 optical viewfinder for £399

I have just purchased the GF1 with 14-45 which is on special offer at Comet for £449 but this is a better deal.

I think this is a better deal, as you get the 17mm pancake lens + external viewfinder for only £30 more:

Amazing price, would be gutted if I'd bought this last year at the £900 mark. I've bought the EPL1 and have to say its the best camera I've owned,the JPG straight from camera are fantastic. Have no doubt the EP1 are similar - go buy!

For those of you who own the full 4/3 lenses for the larger Olympus cameras, Olympus UK are offering a FREE adapter by redemption at the moment. Its called the MMF1 and converts all 4/3 system lenses to the micro 4/3 format including all the electronics unlike some of the cheap chinese copies!!!

its worth about £115 RRP

Have to say i like the retro style and size of the PEN. I have some of the old 35mm PEN cameras and they were revolutionary in their day.

Like others have said, the E-P1 is old stock now and replaced with E-PL1 so many retailers will be clearing their shelves sooner or later!

OOS now, sadly.

A nice looking camera but for the price I think an entry level DSLR is the better choice. The sensor on a DSLR is larger so you'll get better picture quality with less noise and greater high ISO capabilities. Also a DSLR will have a proper optical viewfinder, wider range of lenses, faster shutter speeds, faster continuous shooting capabilities... and the list goes on. It's not as if the Olympus PEN EP-1 is that much smaller than some of the entry level DSLR's. More than likely if you bought the Olympus you'd carry it in a camera bag anyway, so why not just get a proper DSLR that has less compromises.

I would say a majority of people who purchase this type of camera already own a D-SLR and want a "smaller" package for travel or get rid of the "Big" camera bag.

This is actually available again.

I've noticed with Dixons group (when I was looking for a Canon 7D) that stock often re-appears in the mornings, almost like they do an overnight stocktake.
