    I got my cash back less than two weeks after submitting my claim. Have yet to receive the grip/battery.

    Does the EM-1 have a clear protector on the screen out-of-the-box?

    A final comment on this thread. I just received the replacement body. The other body definitely was a demo (or similar). The replacement has the complete box, screen protector on screen (which will be removed for proper protector), and all the cables and warranty card (which the other model did...

    Does the EM-1 have a clear protector on the screen out-of-the-box?

    The company shipped me a replacement today via overnight courier so I should have it tomorrow afternoon. The replacement body will be black. Although the online store has a number of retail outlets, I doubt it was a return (we don't have the return policies in Australia that other countries...

    Does the EM-1 have a clear protector on the screen out-of-the-box?

    Thanks for the replies. I suspected it was an ex-demo/display model due to the way it was packed in the box (card box interior crushed etc.), along with the scuff marks on the body. I contacted the online store I purchased the kit from and asked them if they had shipped me an open-box item by...

    Does the EM-1 have a clear protector on the screen out-of-the-box?

    I have just received my new EM-1. First thing I noticed is that there was no clear protector on the screen. My previous Olympus cameras have had this. Is just something new, or does the EM-1 come with the clear protector? I am curious as my silver body has some scruff marks on it and want to...

    For Australian Buyers

    It has been confirmed by Olympus that you can claim both deals. I just pulled the trigger on the E-M1/12-40 combination from DigiDirect: $1472 for the kit, then $250 cashback from Olympus, along with the grip and battery. Not bad for a final price of $1222. :)

    Australia Only- Olympus PEN E-P5 with 17mm f1.8 M. Zuiko Lens & VF4 for A$1,075.00

    For the people wanting silver. If you select that before adding to cart, you will get silver (even if it doesn't say so). I ordered silver for both the body and the kit and both were as ordered upon collection.

    Australia Only- Olympus PEN E-P5 with 17mm f1.8 M. Zuiko Lens & VF4 for A$1,075.00

    The deals are not a mistake. I grabbed the EP5 body last night when they had it for $575 and I grabbed the kit this morning when they had it for $1075. Had to pay a credit card transaction fee of 1% (so about $15 on the total price). I live 30 minutes drive away and so picked them up not long...

    Fremantle Old Prison G3

    Great images. :) I live not far from the prison and usually take out-of-state visitors there. Years ago, you were able to tour the prison more freely, but these days it is a completely guided tour. Along with the night tour, there is also the option of the tunnel tours which are twenty metres...

    Panasonic 100-300mm $499

    It's also $499 at BH Photo. I prefer (and usually always) buy from them. Super fast, hassle free (but not cheap) shipping to Australia and customer service is awesome.

    Looking for a photography book for a novice

    Yes, I have this on my Kindle, its a good book for the price. I do not recommend the Kindle version of this book - the formatting is terrible and blurry. Grab the paperback version - it's definitely worth it.

    Mu-43 Book Club: book selection poll

    Same here. Seeing as the two top books are so close in votes, maybe the winning book can be our 'first' book and the running up can be our 'second' book if this turns out to be successful.

    Virtual photography book club...anyone interested?

    My first vote is for: The Passionate Photgrapher (enjoyed the sample preview on Amazon). My second vote is for: Visual Poetry. But I will probably order both books at the same time as the reviews for each book are very positive.

    Virtual photography book club...anyone interested?

    I'm definitely interested. I also think this could be a good book: The Passionate Photographer: Ten Steps Toward Becoming Great. I think once a book is decided upon, there would need to be a period of time for those of us who are not based in the USA to source the book and have it shipped to...

    My special E-PL1

    I was going to get the SuperColorIR (590nm) because according to LIfe Pixel "this IR filter is also great for black & white IR photography" (so no need for the external filter). However, I do like the look of your images so now I am conflicted.

    12 Great Deals in Micro Four Thirds

    Use a shipping forwarder. I use shipito. Considering getting the EPL-1 from Cameta via Amazon, but they don't ship internationally via their Amazon page and don't offer the EPL-1 on their own website (it's only $149 from Amazon) so if I do get this, I will be using shipito.
