    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:

    http://www.bartolettionline.it/OLYMPUS-OM-D-E-M5-body-fotocamera-digitale-gar-ITALIA-POLYPHOTO.htm

    (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.

  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.
