    Just received a mail from Olympus today.

    For customers in the EU zone (and maybe others), buy a 17 mm f/2.8 and get the famous "Pen F" logo cap free !

    Pancake + Lens Cap - Olympus

    They seem to be quite lax on conditions, and possibly you may apply if you have already the lens and you kept a copy of the invoice and the bar code of the box. But I can't vouch for their level of checking.

    Cheers,

    [update] I noticed according to the link I pasted that the special offer is supposed to have ended on the 20th of April, but on the (french) version of the page I received, it was extended to May, 31th. So depending on where you live, YMMV. [/update]

    This is great considering the high price of that cap alone.

    I really hope the US follows and does the same giveaway. If not, does anyone in the EU want to do this for me if I cover shipping costs? Got a fresh receipt ready :redface:

    Thanks for the link. The cap that came with my lens is rather nice itself, plastic with an alloy 'Olympus' face. I doubt I'd be able to get the Pen-F one...
