    I'm surprised nobody posted this yet!

    Deal has been up since this morning!

    "4% Rewards on Select Cameras and Lenses
    Now through June 15, 2013, save 4% on select compact system cameras, DSLRs, and lenses. Applies only to purchases of products sold by Amazon.com, and does not apply to products sold by third-party merchants and other sellers through the Amazon.com site."


    Works for pre-order items as well, like the new E-P5. (I called and verified)

    I finally got the Olympus 75/1.8. ( The Amazon deal works with the Black version of this lens too! )

    If Amazon offers the Olympus Father's Day deals that start on June 9, this will be an outstanding deal. Fingers crossed. :biggrin:

    Yeah 4% is great. On a new e-p5 kit made my total somewhere around 1390. But it was the taxes that killed me ad the final total was $1525 or so. Bhphoto was 1475 with 2day shipping.

    Can you send it to a friend or relative that doesn't live in CA or a state that charges for tax?

    I live in IN, so no tax for Amazon

    Yes, I'd find it very difficult not to snap up the 60/2.8 Macro. :biggrin:

    I've been telling myself I don't need that one because I have a macro for my 7D, but the tug is getting harder and more frequent...

    unfortunately, since Amazon started to charge sales tax in most states (in California it is close to 9%), 4% off is still more expensive, than just buying it at B&H or Adorama with 0% sales tax. For those states with low tax, or no sales tax like Oregon, that's a nice incentive

    How come I see none of the MFT or Fujinon lenses on that list?

    Fingers crossed for stacking the 4% and the Olympus instant rebates. That would be awesome.

    Don't know, but it's not a complete list. When I looked up the Oly 60/2.8 Macro, I could see that it qualifies. So look up the individual lenses you're after before giving up. :smile:

    I'm buying the Oly 60 if it gets the instant rebate. :eek: Oly, you have the power to save me from myself. :biggrin:

    60mm macro is $399.99 after instant rebate during the Fathers Day sale. Add another 4% off and I might have to pick one up too :)

    I'm mainly eyeing the silver 75mm f/1.8 since it will be $799.99 during the sale, although for some reason I can't get the 4% to show up at the final checkout screen before placing the order. 4% works for the 60mm macro and black 75mm f/1.8 preorder (which won't be on sale) but not the silver 75mm f/1.8. Weird.

    The 4% is only for selected lenses, so the 75 may not qualify. I guess Amazon wants to cap that 4%.
