Olympus’ Pen E-PL9 has been out in Europe since last month, and now it’s finally making its way to the US today. Like the European release, the US launch of the Olympus Pen E-PL9 will offer white, black, or brown colors, sold either as just the body for $599.99 or in a $699.99 kit that includes a 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ lens, 16GB memory card, and a camera bag.

The Pen E-PL9 is an updated version of the 2016 E-PL8 model in Olympus’ Pen Lite series of pocket mirrorless cameras. It looks to improve on the older model with additions like a larger grip, pop-up flash, and the ability to record 4K video at 30 fps. The E-PL9 also offers a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor and features the same TruePic VIII processor from the company’s flagship OM-D E-M1 Mark II.
