Holy Smokes! Where was that 2 weeks ago when I bought a new one. After the last refurb sales I had no faith that the old 20% off would come back so I didn't wait.
First we jack up the refurb price and then give you a discount...now, don't you feel better?
I got that lens brand new for $99 and Olympus used to have the refurb listed for $59.And some of that silliness is still there.
I just checked, the 40-150R "refurb" is still listed at $160. So with a 20% discount, down to $128. That is still above what the old refurb price of $100 was.
So you still have to check the prices.
I just bought an HLD-9 battery grip for the EM-1 ii for 127.99 plus a tax of about $10.00. I almost bit for a new one a couple of months ago for $279. Good deal but broke my resolution of no more stuff but wife uses this camera and wanted it.
