Olympus still hasn't let out any sort of official word on a release date for it hotly-anticipated Micro Four Thirds cameras, but the company has just announced two new less-than-anticipated models, which will apparently each be exclusive to UK retailer Jessops for the time being. On the higher end of the range is the 12-megapixel Olympus X-915 (pictured above), which packs an ample 5x optical zoom, a 2.7-inch "hypercrystal" LCD, image stabilization, smile recognition, and a price tag of £299 (or about $435). At £259 (or $375), the 10-megapixel X-890 will save you a few bucks, but you'll have to make do with some not insignificant trade-offs, including a more conventional 3x optical zoom, and a lack of smile recognition and some other features, though you will apparently still get some basic face recognition. No word on a broader roll-out for these just yet, but those in UK should be able to snag each at Jessops right now.
