I'm wondering if I should stock up on the possibly last new camera body from Olympus now and get a few spare batteries at the same time - or should I wait for a possibly better deal on Black Friday.
I'd end up with an E-M1 ii and an E-M1 iii but would be able to fit one with the 300mm + MC-20 and have the 40-150mm (with or without MC-14) on the other. All the batteries would be the same plus SCP and handling/controls would be almost identical. The HHHR and joystick would be nice.I had no intention of buying an EM-1 mkIII, now I am rethinking that. The upgrade from the II is small (basically HHHR), but .....
The slide duplicator with bellows looks like a nice piece of kit as well.My favourite local camera store, Camera Traders (Victoria, BC, Canada) has some yummy Olympus OM pieces at what seem like good prices to me.
Remember, these are priced in Arctic Pesos, so deduct 20% to 25% to see what they'd cost in US$.
I'd be all over these, if I hadn't just blown my lens budget for the year! I don't even know if they're willing to ship, but you can ask them.
- OM Zuiko 50/2 Macro, C$499
- OM Zuiko 35/3.5 Shift, C$349
- OM Zuiko 28/2, C$300
There's a number of other Olympus tidbits at this link, too.
Kinda weird, though — it's got a focusing stage on the camera end, which is (as far as I know) useless.The slide duplicator with bellows looks like a nice piece of kit as well.
