OlympusOlympus E-420 Komachi kit : Named after famous Japanese poet Ono no Komachi, who was renowned for her beauty, the Olympus E-420 Komachi Kit certainly lives up to its namesake. Olympus brings together the E-420 body with the ZUIKO DIGITAL 25mm 1:2.8 pancake lens to present a combination that cuts a decidedly elegant figure. The size and weight advantages inherent with the Four Thirds System are clearly demonstrated in this kit. The camera body and lens pairing measures in at a total length of just 76.5mm - which makes it the most compact D-SLR set-up in the world, and together they weigh merely 475g. As such, high quality miniaturised optics that deliver maximum D-SLR brilliance can be taken along and enjoyed anywhere with ease.

The included hand-made leather case and strap, featuring a fashionable retro design completes the ensemble magnificently. The Komachi kit is available in limited quantities and also includes a 1GB CompactFlash memory card, LCD lens protector and a lens cloth. It will hit stores in October 2008. The Komachi Kit utilises the advantages of the Four Thirds Standard perfectly. Photographers get D-SLR quality in a never-before-offered compact and lightweight form.

The package combines the powerful E-420 body with the slim ZUIKO DIGITAL 25mm 1:2.8 pancake lens. Together, this combination represents the most portable D-SLR kit available. And with the stylish hand-made leather case and strap, which come in classic brown, it’s always ready to pick up and go. The ergonomic Olympus E-420 D-SLR, which packs 10 Megapixels into its compact body, boasts full manual control to satisfy just about every creative impulse. But it also enables incredible ease of use with 28 different shooting modes including full auto. Thanks to integration of the Olympus-exclusive Supersonic Wave Filter, protection against dust is guaranteed and ensures perfect photos. Meanwhile, the Live View function allows users to preview images in real time on the bright 2.7”/6.9cm HyperCrystal II LCD.

Olympus ZUIKO Digital 25mm pancake offers high image quality
The ZUIKO DIGITAL 25mm 1:2.8 pancake lens, which measures in at an overall length of just 23.5mm and weighs merely 95g, is the pinnacle of miniaturised optics delivering maximum brilliance. It offers users D-SLR image quality in the most miniscule of packages. This highly portable lens is perfectly suited for everyday use, as it provides an angle of view equivalent to 50mm (on a 35mm camera) - which is near to that of the human eye. In addition, due to adherence to the Four Thirds Standard, it is extremely versatile - and fully compatible not only with the whole Olympus E-System range of camera bodies but with all Four Thirds-based cameras.
