    Full retail is $899 for the 75mm. $100 promo from Olympus is a regular, recurring promo. The extra 5% does make it a good find. Thanks for posting.

    And keep in mind that that is in Canadian dollars. There's currently a 0.94 conversion rate with USD.

    I miss the good old days when everything came in black. I love my 75mm but I wish it was black not silver.

    How do you get 5% with google checkout?
    I still see 799 after doing the google checkout page.

    Henry's should also match vistek's 719.95 Canadian (they did for me).

    Not sure but it was up there last night? It went down last night for an hour or so and then back up also.

    Edit: Total purchase price must be less than $1600 usd to receive the additional 5%. You must also have registered for a BH Photo acct.

    Yeah I already have an account and only trying to buy this, but no 5% off. Maybe it is a targeted promo.

    Another option is to use B&H's mobile site. It will say 5% discount under the Google Wallet image.

    Ahhh yes...

    I made a purchase with the browser on my Samsung Tablet. I have the BH app installed, but I used a link from the forum here and purchased through the mobile site.

    Vistek is showing out of stock.... Also are you in Canada or the US? How do I get them to price match OOS and for delivery to the US?

    Thanks

    Wouldn't for me. I sent them a request and screenshot showing in stock at Vistek, but by the time they went to website, status changed to out of stock. That's why i sent the screenshot with my request, but they won't accept that, they must see it on a delayed look basis. After a lengthy back-and-forth, I am canceling- not that critical an item and don't want to be reminded of a sour experience every time I look at it. Life goes on....

    I ordered in canada (my mom lives there although I live in the uk).

    I emailed them with the vistek and Aden camera links, but then followed up with a phone call. I don't think that shipping has anything to do with it. They should just give you the $719 price, but I. Don't know how it works with out of stock though.

    Policy, which Inhave no problem with, is often that match only if competitor has it in stock. Easy to offer low prices if you don't have to sell any :)

    But here, it was I stock when I asked for matching (that's why I made sure to take a screenshot) and send it to them as well. By the time they looked next day! status changed! plus Black Friday sales don't run forever.

    So I will go with a 35-100 instead.

    That sucks. I did have to call back and ask about it a few times an then ask for the returns procedure. The third guy that I spoke to just alder for the vistek part number an the Aden camera web page for the 17/1.8. I guess I just got lucky.

    It sucks living in NYC! Most the good camera stores are here and we have to pay tax.

    I guess there's no way to prove that the screenshot you took wasn't altered. Pretty easy to make a change, even with MS Paint.
