[FINISHED!]*Insane* Olympus Store-Wide Deals! Refurb E-M5 Kit for *$754*. Lenses and Accessories too!
The sale seems to be over! As I said there's a good chance someone at olympus just screwed up the pricing temporarily, but I am very confused as to how so many items got discounted to such varying degrees. Perhaps a future sale? Let's hope that in the Christmas spirit olympus will honor these prices!
The prices are so low I thought the website must have been glitching, or someone screwed up badly. getolympus.com is running *huge* discounts. Right after I bought an E-M5 from amazon for $1200 . Hopefully Amazon will price match refund me the difference. I wanted to use amazon's financing options, but I'd rather pay 754 in one go.

Black E-M5 Body Only(select from drop down menu): $699.99

$753 Silver kit?!?!?! What. The. Heck.
Just when I was saying the E-M5 has retained value better than pretty much any other M/43 cam.
Does olympus sell so little from their own store that they are supercompensating??
I need to see now if amazon will match their prices.
December 15th, 2012, 03:48 AM
I just checked and they are selling for $909 ??Maybe it was a mistake on their site that is fixed now?

Those selling really cheap are RECONDITIONED cameras, not new ones! (although I'd trust Olympus to recondition tem properly)
The new one was selling for only $100 off.
Although if I had waited until now I would have missed out on 8 months of enjoyment!

Thanks.. I didn't realize that ..
I even missed the link that the OP provided...
Darn its too late to think straight ... hahah
December 15th, 2012, 03:58 AM
I'm no longer going to buy the D600, it seems...

I've edited the first post a couple of times so let me clarify/reiterate.
The proper links are at the bottom of the OP now.
The *new* silver kits cost $909. If you want a black body only, you can go to the new kit page, and select body only from the drop down menu.
The refurbished kits costs $753 (Silver)(Black).
Again, these prices are so good there's a good chance someone screwed up badly at olympus. The new kit is selling for almost $300 less than it is everywhere else. Refurbished, it's basically a $450 discount.

Oh man...should I buy another one...
Although to be fair, when you add tax...it's still a crazy deal

Ohh mann I wish I had the money right now to get this.. .. Do you all think It would be Smart of me to put this on my credit card and try and sell the GH2 I just received the other week, from the Gold box deal black Friday week on Amazon, and sell it before the bill is due..lol?.
