    Prices seem to be up at Amazon, too.

    Really excited because I kind of thought that Olympus was going to be stingy with us this year.

    Not as good as the accidental sale they had up on their website last year this time, but this one should last more than a couple of hours (when they realized their mistake and changed the prices - but honored those of us who completed transactions at the lower price). $399 is a pretty good price for the 17mm - I think it was only about $30 less last year at the wholesale price they accidentally listed...

    That's the one that has my attention. I've been thinking of giving primes a shot again, because I do feel that they are the real strength of :43:.

    Thanks for sharing these. Looks like refurbs are still the way to go for most items though.

    Really good deal on the 40-150 @ $120. Free shipping and no tax (to certain states) makes this better than the refurb for $99.

    Henry's has some amazing deals as well

    If you find the prices on the Olympus site tempting then check Henry's. They have many prices that are just a touch lower than the Olympus site.

    For instance, you can get the 17mm f/1.8 (either black or silver) for $379:

    These prices are getting a bit crazy. Makes it hard to have any discipline at all...

    If I see an E-PM2 at $225 or an E-PL5 at $300 I'm buying. But that's it. And very unlikely. The one that scares me is the GX7. If I that drops to $700 or so it will be hard to pass up, though the price cuts we're seeing on it already have me a bit concerned that it might not behave much differently than most of Panny's non-GH cameras.

    Man that's a great price on the 17mm f/1.8. I paid full whack last year because it was the lens I had been waiting for and can't have any complaints because I've used it a ton and really love it, but even then I'm jealous of those who can get in at this price point.

    I'm wondering if they will adjust the refurb prices. I'm skeptical as it seems Oly and Nikon rebox and mark as refurb these days as a way to bleed out excess inventory that is actually new.

    I don't think so. I watch pretty closely and notice good deals go out of stock quickly (same day at times)...so I've missed a few bargains. They do offer package deals to bleed older "obsolete" models though.

    I guess that's good, if I see an E-M5 with the 12-50 for under $800, I might not be able to resist.

    I picked up the Oly 40-150mm in black for $120 at Henry's today. Could not pass it up at that price.
