As advertised above. The silver for $569 and the black for $589. I've seen this before, but this might be new to someone.

Those prices are not that far off the 1% per week price decay curve for typical consumer electronics.

It's about the same directly from getolympus if you use the 20% coupon.

There's still a 20% off coupon? I thought that was only up to Mar 24 or so?

Hrm, 369 for a Demo E-PL5.

Interestingly, the getolympus site suggests only a 90 day warranty on refurbs but Cameta is showing 1 year warranty.....anyone have a clue on the descrepency?

You can buy a 2 year Olympus factory warranty for PEN cameras for $30 on ebay

Is there still a 20% coupon? Inquiring minds would like to know!

The 1 year warranty is through Cameta. I've utilized it once - you mail it to them and they forward to the repair center, vs you mailing to the repair center directly. You pay for both ways shipping.

I had to send my refurb E-M5 back to Cameta. I paid about $22 total for shipping, and they fixed it. I'd buy from them again.

Yes! I do hope they do that too. I may break down then and get Ep5 with Evf4 instead of waiting for new Em5 replacement or getting Em1.

Comments about Cameta

FWIW, a number of years ago I too used Cameta's warranty and they really went the extra mile/kilometre to make things right. By the time the whole process was complete, I suspect they lost money on the deal but never said a word about it.

That said, I find their listings for refurbished Olympus gear frustrating. Currently 62 of 84 are 'Out Of Stock' but are still show up. They obviously do that to keep their click count up but IMO it's better to avoid irritating potential buyers. Even GetOlympus ultimately removes items when they're no longer available.
