    Hello Guys,

    Does anyone know what happened to Olympus Canada outlet store? It doesn't show up as an option on the website anymore!?!

    It's there; I just linked to it:


    Some of their prices are a little nuts. I can't imagine anyone paying $449.99 CDN for a 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 R II lens.

    That's just the regular store. It appears there is no more Outlet in Canada, ever since they adjusted their pricing (dramatically) upward in response to currency changes a month or so ago.

    Which is pretty annoying, since there has been no major in the CAD vs. Yen exchange in 2015.

    More discussion on this topic can be found in this thread. The bottom-line is that the Outlet option has been removed from Oly's Canadian website and no one knows if/when it will return.

    The real kicker is that if you're in Canada, you can't even order from the US outlet. As soon as you're address goes in as Canadian, it says it won't ship to you. I'm not sure why Olympus doesn't want Canucks buying their stuff :(
