    In case you were not aware, Olympus just began offering a $200.00 rebate for those that will be ordering both the new OMD-EM1 body AND the 12-40 f2.8 lens. Apparently due to the lack of availability of the "kit" option they are placating their customers with this olive branch so to speak. Not unreasonable if I do say so. I have mine ordered like that along with a grip. This info comes from a dealer for Olympus that tends to get their shipments of new product pretty much first in line. ********** in New York. I got my EM5 and grip from them weeks before other dealers had them so I have a track record with them. Just speak to the owner there...Joel. He will fill you in if needed.

    Would be great if this is indeed true. But I haven't seen any retailer or even Olympus publish this rebate.

    Maybe it's Joel's manager special rebate!

    I'm too cheap to save that kind of money.

    I wonder if all items have to purchased on the same receipt/order. I ordered the body + lens on B&H and Amazon without the adapter because I didn't want to get stuck with an adapter and no camera and didn't buy the lens with the body+adapter when I bought it from olympus because their preorder policy states all orders are shipped together in terms of them receiving items in stock.

    Lol.

    Anyone finds out any details how this works please share. Got an E-M1 on pre-order. I want to order the 12-40 now but want to make sure I'm entitled to the rebate.

    Good thing I took a screen shot of it, so I can give them grief!

    Did the "pulled" rebate cover Canada too?

    Olympus would demonstrate a lot of good faith if they do honor the $200 rebate for customers who purchase the 12-40 separately from the EM1 too.

    I for one, will have no hesitation to support the aggressive pricing.

    I also used the link, and saw the offer on the Olympus site. We all know it was there, and one person even screen captured it. Has anyone called them to ask if they will still honor it? That $200 would definitely make my decision to get both easier. :smile:
    Thanks!

    I would call them if I've seen the offer or the screen cap. Is there a link to the screen cap?

    I will put that up later today. I have been insanely busy of late and had little time to do things like that. Heck, I have not even picked up my camera in weeks.

    From looking closely at their offering, I think the rebate is only for the MMF-3, not for the grip too.

    Can anyone verify it's for both?
