    I'm looking to add an om-d to my lineup.
    What are the cheapest prices within Europe (mailorder stores) ?

    all the prices I can find are still the stock prices... :frown:

    I did read that in the uk and ireland you'll get the 45mm lens for free soon, but as you will need to fill in a form, I won't be able to claim that I think ? (and i got the 45mm already)

    I live in Belgium by the way, I don't know if i'll buy body only or with kit lens...
    I think body only

    it retails for 1099 euro here, and the kit for 1299

    There is a guy in Italy selling on ebay for 899 euro. Shipping cost look reasonable too. The description is in italian, so I am not sure if there is a catch.

    OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5 body fotocamera digitale gar. ITALIA POLYPHOTO | eBay

    Took the link from 43rumors by the way, so if there is tracking code inside I apologize. If you want to order maybe you can go through the referal links of this forum.

    I prefer not buying that kind of stuff from ebay, but from a retailer with a good reputation (warranty) ,but thanks for the link :wink:
  4. I bought mine in Belgium from Foto Rubens/Studio73: 50 Euros less than stock price.

    I bought mine from a local store (near Florence in Italy) for 899 euro that also sells online:

    (you can find it also on ebay and I think it's even slightly cheaper there), I bought it from the physical store and they seem reputable enough.

    Also a very good price (815,99 euro) from a major online seller of electronic equipment can be found at:

    E-M5BBODY - OLYMPUS - OM-D E-M5 F Black Body Risoluzione 16.1 Mpx Sens - ePRICE

    I bought plenty of stuff from them over the years and never had any complaint.

    Retailers have no reason to lower prices as there still is a high demand for the camera...and price reductions are being handled by Olympus through rebates, like the current one for te 45mm lens.

    Does anyone use Cameta on Ebay bc their prices even with freight are great here in australia
  9. If you are asking after Foto Rubens? I have used them several times, very knowledgeable staff that take their time explaining everything. Never had to use them for repairs or such like.
