PEN Lite E-PL3

Rating: 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

Lowest Price: £304.45

Over the last couple of years, Olympus PEN has made a name for itself with retro-styled, easy-to-use, compact system cameras that take very high-quality pictures. The new PEN Lite (E-PL3) does that and more. It gives you all the creativity and interchangeable lenses of an SLR camera, but with none of the hassle - and none of the bulk.
