Olympus XZ-1 available to pre-order


B&H Photo are accepting pre-orders on the new high-end XZ-1 (10MP) digital compact from Olympus. Seems like Olympus are trying to challenge the G12 and LX5, and with an optically imagae stabilised 28-112mm f/1.8-2.5 it's looking hopeful. Time will tell. The price is listed at $499.95 and if you order it with Lightroom 3 you'll get $100 off the price.

One feature that flew under my radar was the accessory port for an optional EVF, I'm hoping it's the same one that I'm using currently with the Olympus Pen E-PL2, it would make sense.
