Pricing and Availability Announced for Olympus E-PL3

Olympus announced today that the Olympus E-PL3 will be available in September 2011 for $699.99 (with redesigned 14-42mm zoom lens).

They also add a new accessory to its PEN Micro Four Thirds system family today with the introduction of the compact VF-3 Electronic Viewfinder. Priced at $179.99, the VF-3 attaches to any Olympus PEN model with an accessory port, as well as the Olympus XZ-1, for eye-level convenience.

I have the VF-2 viewfinder, and I love it...

I never ended up taking the plunge and getting the VF-2, so I'm looking forward to seeing how the VF-3 compares, and hoping it might even bring the price of the VF-2 down...

Also need to confirm that the VF-3 works on an E-PL1 (which along with the E-P2, had the old accessory port version 1).
