    I filled out an Olympus survey a few weeks ago and finally received a 20% coupon as a thank you.

    I was able to use it to get a silver VF2 at $250 MINUS 20%. Not bad. I also tried to use the coupon for other stuff like an eye cup or converter but those are all out of stock.

    Sweet. If you enter 905932-L1 into Staples.com you can get the VF-2 for $199, and buy a $30 off $150 coupon on ebay for $2.50 to end up getting it for $172.50 as well.

    I don't even have my camera yet...

    ...but this does sound like a great deal. Is there any chance that a new/updated VF is on the near horizon? I ask because I got an iPad for my birthday last month and learned about the new one just out. I still love mine but that sort of thing always happens to me. Since my EPL2 is still on backorder I didn't want to jump the gun on the view finder....

    Chomping on the bit for my camera :-(

    I really doubt that there will be a new EVF. This one seems to be the bees knees according to everyone that has one.

    Alas, most of the things I'd want are out of stock as well.

    I got mine too. They seem to be out of stock of 1/2 the gear all the time.

    ihavenewfs, I think Apple is giving a hundred dollar credit to those who purchased an iPad recently. You might want to check that out.

    The quote doesn't work. Where do I buy that eBay coupon? I wish I knew about this. I just bought an almost new VF-2 from eBay for $208.50

    The excellent VF-2 viewfinder is what sold me on the Olympus system (over the Panasonic body)

    Boy, I'm glad you outbid me on that VF-2! I just got my order confirmation from Staples. I used the item # and a coupon from onlinecouponshop.com and the cost was $188 with tax.:biggrin:

    Is this survey only available to people who've already purchased oly equipment?

    I shouldn't gloat but I'm usually on the wrong end of these deals. :wink:

    I check and the 905932-L1 code still works if entered in the Staples search box.

    Nice, comes out cheaper at Staples. Oh well. I suppose my consolation is that I picked up a silver one go w/ my EPL1.

    I don't think so, all you have to do is be registered with oly.

    I received the survey & coupon too. I've had oly equipment but it's all been second & third hand where they would never have had any record of any registered product from me.

    Vf2 Viewfinder & Oly 17mm lens

    Just received my new Pen P2 yesterday. Have lenses so I am looking to sell the 17mm kit lens. $265.00 including USA shipping, obviously Brand New, no original box, in bubble wrap inside Kit box. Accept PayPal.
    Just checked out the Staples $30/$150 coupon along with the online price of $199.00 price using the Staples seach no. 905932-L1 and it's a deal! Better order before they're out, who knows when production will be back up with all the troubles in Japan. Pray for them and donate what you can.
