The pricing and availability of the Olympus PEN-F is out. It will be available from 15th February 2016. It will be having a promotion where you can buy the lenses and accessories at cheaper price and with free gifts. The actual price of the body is not cheap (IMHO) at S$1,798. However, with the free gifts and cheaper lenses (during the promotion), I think it is a good deal. Love the old-school look.
