I've purchased an OMD E-M1 and several lenses refurbished, based on the experiences other have shared in this forum. Everything arrived looking new or "near new." For the E-M1 and 12-40/2.8 lens, I also purchased the extended warranty just to be safe.Anyone else ever purchase a reconditioned camera - I'm kind of scared....
It doesn't hurt to continue to check throughout the sale, as they sometimes restock items. During the February sale, the 75mm/1.8 popped up the second or third day of the sale and I was able to snag one. Their inventory system is a little off, so it took weeks for it to arrive, but the savings were such that I wouldn't have bought it otherwise. Good luck.I checked shortly after I received the email (13:32 EDT) and IF there were any 12-40 f/2.8 lenses, they sold before I arrived.
I added both the Mk I and Mk II, and then did a quick search about the differences, if any. Came back and found the Mk II "Out of Stock" in my cart. Grabbed the Mk I (was a little cheaper anyway.)Don't feel too bad, I bought a new 75-300mm MKii on B and H yesterday so I could have it for the weekend. They have free expedited shipping this week BTW. When I checked the Olympus Outlet at lunch time from work they had the 75-300mm Mkii there with the summer sale. But by the time I got home it was gone and anything else I tried to add the the cart says out of stock. I've never bought from the Outlet do they accept paypal?
I received a "shipped" notification yesterday afternoon, so it can be pretty quick.Any idea how fast they ship? I'll probably buy an OMD
It's a bit off topic, but what wrong with that website? The adblock counter just keeps going up for that page.According to Robin Wong it certainly is.
I think it varies...for me, they have been quick (received in a few days, but I'm also in PA). Others who have gotten orders on "out of stock" items have waited a few weeks according to some posts on here. But I'd guess the majority of orders ship w/in 24hrs.Usually how long does it take for Olympus to ship their reconditioned product orders?
Ordered an Oly OMD this morning and it shows as shipped alreadyI added both the Mk I and Mk II, and then did a quick search about the differences, if any. Came back and found the Mk II "Out of Stock" in my cart. Grabbed the Mk I (was a little cheaper anyway.)
Yes, they do take Paypal.
