    All,
    Looks like I made a mistake. For the past couple of months I've been deciding between the E-M5 and the X Pro-1. Based upon my needs, I feel the E-M5 is best for me, so I was ready to pounce. Unfortunately I was a day late and dollar short - and it looks like I missed out on the $150 rebates via Amazon.
    Any news of some new deals coming out ? I figure with Photokina around the block it may bring some price drops...

    Thanks !

    Olympus' website constantly has rebates, etc., might be worth looking there. Otherwise, I have no doubt other rebates will pop up if you're patient.

    Camera West (camerawest.com) in Walnut Creek, CA has a 10- used OM-D for $850. I've been so tempted by it myself. I'm sure they can ship it.

    Can you link that? I looked at the site, but didn't see them.

    Welcome to the forum! Patience can pay off - if you wait for Photokina there may be some drops after, or watch the buy sell threads here.

    Thanks again guys. I'll see what Photokina brings. I have a trip to Spain early next month - so I'll be pulling the trigger here soon.
