Not surprised, just too expensive for what it was

Re: Official PEN-F....RIP.

The rumour is based on the black version being unavailable with a Google translation, "Black sale is over date" & yet the silver version is still available as seen in this screen shot (with Google translate activated).

I have one, but I agree. Olympus has a habit of over pricing cameras, especially the Pens. The EP5 was a fantastic camera for its time, but I think its disappointing sales were in part due to crazy initial pricing. The same is true of the Pen F.
