Digidirect have a sale on.

As an example , Em1x for $3100. A pity the bonus flash deal has finished, lol.

And if anyone is eyeing the 5iii, you can now get it with the new 12-45 for less than I paid for the body only in January, which is annoying, tbh.

The 300/4 and 200/2.8 are both $3200.

However, I notice Ryder has the 45mmf1.2 lens for $1,398.85 so the E-M1 II is costing $800 with the above deal on top of the lens (discounted) price.

Richard, the eBay one doesn't come with a $1,000+ lens ...

Your reference states specifically "body only".

I’ve used eBay resellers for promotions from Nikon, Fuji, and Olympus. Never had an issue. Ryda are an authorised reseller. They, like several other authorised resellers also have eBay stores.

Body only is included in the promotion

@Richard_M Please let us know how you get on, TIA.
I have no intention of investing anymore coin in Olympus. If anyone reading this has any doubts ring Olympus. I’ve purchased quite a lot of camera gear from Ryda over the years. Never had an issue with them.

@John King, just out of interest which reseller do you usually buy camera gear from?

The reason I ask is you might be surprised they probably have an eBay store. There are times like this when a promotion is offered, but no sales on at the resellers, but there is one via eBay.

I’ve also purchased quite a bit from C.R. Kennedy’s eBay store over the years when there is a 20% discount.

It's not, although I have bought items from all of those. From their physical stores, that is.
These 'bricks & mortar' stores usually sell items they wish to clear through their ebay stores & I've also bought from them that way too. It doesn't mean they have all their stock listed there though, however, it does pay to check if trying to save some money.
