    It is $49.95 at Olympus, and the shipping handling makes it about the same as buying from B&H, etc., but...

    ...register with Oly's web site and you get a $10 coupon on your birthday!! Just bought me a lens cap lens for $48 shipped!!

    I just registered on Home page | Olympus, but they didn't ask me for my birthdate. Even when I drill down into my account information, I'm not seeing where one can provide such data. Can you elaborate?

    Hmmm... not really. It has been a LONG time since I registered. This is the email text:

    I'm mainly waiting to see what the image quality of it is (would be nice if they had a sample image on their product page).

    Go to the home page, select "Savings" then "Savings and Featured Deals" then under that "Email Deals" and when you sign up there is a birthday deals option.

    Thanks, Bob! (or do you prefer SuperMod RevBob?) ;)

    Unfortunately I couldn't bring myself to suddenly have a late-September birthday, so I'll have to wait a few months.

    Somehow, I think I can get by just with "Bob". :biggrin: As I actually have a late September birthday (27th) I went ahead and signed up. :thumbup:

    In the UK it's available for pre-order at £70 - but the US price of $50 is the equivalent of around £30 - ie less than half that! :mad:

    Shipping to the UK for something so small/light can't be THAT expensive...seems like an arbitrage opportunity for someone.
