    WHOA, just got an email in the mail. Use coupon code "SPRING" for and extra 25% off anything reconditioned!

    This is what the refurbished EM-1 goes for. I would not miss this deal if I wanted an EM-1 right now!

    I just got one on the last sale for $90 more. That's a really great deal.

    I would bet sales tax in every state (that has a tax).

    Camera is $699 at all the online retailers, though. Should still save almost $200 over new even with tax.

    Doesn't Olympus charge sales tax for every state?

    You may be right, only 5 states don't have sales tax. Of course some states sales tax is lower than others. But, in case of Amazon, they only charge it in states that they have some sort of business, such as a warehouse, I think.

    EM1 is out of stock.
    $420 is good deal for EM10 even with tax ($33 in Colorado)

    Right, but I think with Olympus, as with any manufacturer, you have to charge the state sales tax in any state where your product is physically sold by a retailer. I was also charged sales tax when I bought cameras/lenses directly from Canon for example.

    It looks like pretty much everything I'd be interested in during this latest sale period is gone already. Oh well. :(

    I wouldn't feel too bad - I logged on to the site within 30 seconds of receiving the email and there wasn't much there to begin with

    Yup. I've lucked out a number of times, grabbing an E-M5 with 12-50, a Stylus 1 and a few lenses. I'm now watching for the 12 and 75 but I know neither will be easy to catch. And I'm finally beginning to believe those who say Oly intentionally pulls some items before the sales. But perhaps they'll allow a few on each day.

    Glad I ordered one right away yesterday when I saw this deal come by ... can't wait to use my Oly 50-200 SWD properly again and have a better viewfinder for my manual glass. Probably just keep my E-M5 so I have two bodies.

    They don't pull items before the sale. When I was on, there were: 45/1.8, 12/2, E-M1, and E-M5 of various flavours!

    That was terrible, I got the email and went there right away, bought the 45/1.8 (black went fast) but silver was there, and the E-m1.....I'm gonna get in trouble for that...

    the 12 was there for a bit... I think that one is next on my list, so I do remember seeing it (though I didn't click to see if it was actually "in stock" -- the 60 Macro that's there now shows out of stock if you click it)

    I keep telling myself I don't need the 60, I don't need the 60 . . .
