    1 hour from Sydney Australia.
    I knew this was coming........ Because I bought all my new lenses and an E-M5 in October...

  4. Just put in an order for a new OMD EM-5 body (black) at Ryda (Sydney) yesterday (because I got sick of waiting for my G5 and cancelled it) and they said it'll be sent out Monday (in stock) so the timing for this offer couldn't be better for me (for a change, normally I miss out on these offers).

    Thanks smarikoe for the heads up :2thumbs:

    Ahh same as me, just bought a new OMD....

    "missed it by that much"

    They cannot issue you with a new receipt, against the Trade Practices Act so I am told, but ask the store you bought if from to contact Olympus to see what can be done. Its worth a try. Thats what I have done

    There's still the 60mm macro lens that's on that list of selected lenses.

    a. the Olympus EW-M1728 (Silver or Black)
    b. the Olympus EW-M1220 Silver (EW-M1220 Black limited edition is excluded from this promotion)
    c. the Olympus ET-M7518
    d. the Olympus ET-4518
    e. the Olympus EM-M6028
    f. the Olympus BCL-1580L (Body Cap Lens)
    g. the Olympus EZ-M1415
    h. the Olympus EZ-M0918

    I've been enjoying my E-M5 (& 12-50 lens) with the MMF-3 that was offered up till the end of June & that has been used a fair bit with my ZD70-300 lens (until I get a M4/3's lens that will focus faster). That was a nice bonus that was suitable to me at the time (as well as the discount price I got from DigiDirect which is still listed at that price). Now this 60mm macro lens is looking extra good with the cashback.

    You could try but, .....

    Read this.
    Quoted from the Terms & Conditions.
    "The Promoter reserves the right, at any time, to verify the validity of claims (including contacting the
    place of purchase, confirming the reseller’s Registered Business Number) and claimants (including a
    claimant’s identity, age and place & country of residence) and to disqualify any claimant who submits a
    claim that is not in accordance with these Terms and Conditions or who tampers with the claim process."

    It's only the 17/2.8 that's listed for the cashback.

    Serendipity. I went to my camera store on Wednesday (31/10) for my back-ordered 60mm macro and was advised that it wasn't in yet. Travelled home, and received an email that my lens had been in for a week - someone hadn't updated the computer... :dash2:

    Went in again on Thursday (1/11) and picked up my lens. Read about cashback last night...

    Sometimes things just work out :biggrin:
