    I picked up the Oly 40-150mm f2.8 (refurbished) for $959 plus tax (9.75% - ouch, I live in TN).

    The lens is usually available during these 20% off sales, but I didn't see it this time.

    I bought the E-PL6 kit for a backpack camera, looking forward to my first modern Olympus camera after many Panasonic.

    Wow. What does Olympus use to power their website?!!! I am guessing a single computer utilizing an i486 processor running Windows 3.1 over a 56k modem line.

    I noticed it as well, but normally it is very fast even when they offer these extra 20% off specials.

    Such an awesome deal for that 45mm, under 200 bucks for what was already one of the best deals in m43.

    Really? I'm seeing the black one on my end.

    Part of me is glad that that they didn't list a 60 this time . . .

    It will tell you that the lens is out of stock when you try to add it to the cart.

    Did not see the 60mm available today.

    $575 is a great price on the E-M5 mark II.

    Keep checking periodically over the next few days. They seem to like to spread the stock out so that they have some stock every day.

    Yep, I've seen that in the past too. I seem to remember it'd be around late morning Eastern time, but the weekend may throw it off.

    I'm really trying to talk myself out of the 25/1.8... I don't need it but it'd fit right between my 17/1.8 and 45/1.8...

    My wife and I each bought an E-M1 for $575....great deal. An earlier post said the E-M1 was out of stock, but I just checked and it let me put another one in my cart (took it out, don't need 3)

    I ordered the E-M5 II for $616 after sales tax was applied. I rented one last month and really liked it after I got used to most of the controls vs the original E-M5. The much quieter shutter and the shutter shock being mostly resolved with an almost unnoticeable delay was the real improvement to me. The only thing that I didn't like was the power switch located between the hump and the mode dial. It now required two hands to power it off/on. I found the one on the lower back of the original really convenient to use as I usually would power down the camera between any expected wait time of more than a few minutes and could turn it on as I was bringing up to my eye from its resting position on my BlackRapid sling.
