    I've just cracked, couldn't resist this price dammit!

    This is an imported body, but from a UK seller (HDEW Cameras) offering their own 3 year warranty on the camera and with a good reputation (see below).

    There's a large thread on talkphotography here with many happy (often professional) buyers:

    Good deal, wonder if this means a switch to shifting old stock ready for a space on the shelves :)

    I am sure I read a post stating that a retailer had tried to order more stock of EM-5 only to be told that it had been discontinued - I think it was in relation to a retailer in Skandinavia?

    Replacement on the horizon in Sep as speculated????

    Yep, I think this is probably the stock-clearing price before something else comes out - but that's perfect for me. I'll be happy with the (huge) step up from my e-pl3 without having to fork out a grand for a new sensor'd 5-axis body.

    Leaves more funds spare for the 12-35, 35-300 and dozen other lenses I covet :thumbup:
