Will OM-D be on sale anywhere on Black Friday? Or are hot items like OM-D never on sale even on BF?
I think Insaw elsewhere on this forum that it will be on sale from Olympus.
Here's the post you are looking for, scroll to near the bottom.
Black Friday | Olympus
Likely, except typical sales prices direct from the maker are usually equal to whatever the going rate is at regular retailers. In other words, don't hold your breath for a significant black friday discount.
I just bought a NEX-6 and want a NEX-7 too, I'm selling my OM-D kit (black). PM me if you're interested. Looks perfectly new and is boxed. The rubber on the add-on grip has a couple of marks though, only in the rubber though, might brush out.
$449 E-PM2 is tempting.
I dunno about BF, but like other people have noted, if there's a markdown at retail, it probably won't be much. Consider that most cameras 9 months after their release have already had price drops, which doesn't seem to have happened much (if at all) to the E-M5. I suppose that means demand must still be pretty strong.
If you don't mind refurbished Cameta camera has some very nice deals on the OM-D.
Is that body only?
Yes, the kit will be $499.
Hmmm. I'm thinking of selling my Sony RX100 to buy the E-PM2, but I'm nervous I won't be able to sneak in the E-PM2 to concerts because of the removable lens.
Get the Sony RX1 then....
I would love the RX1, but it's too expensive. haha
Shouldn't be too hard. I went to a show last summer that said no DSLR/interchangeable cameras with my G2 and kit lens(was a bit short, but worked ok in ETC mode). I had it in a camera bag for super zooms. All they noticed was hot small it was compared to a regular DSLR and mistook it for a standard P&S. I am sure the smaller E-PM2 wouldn't have that issue with the kit or prime lens.
Really good sale on the OM-D at Henry's in Canada today. Body only $899 and $1049 with the 12-50mm.
I bought the body last weekend at their show for $929 but I'm changing to the kit with the 12-50 at that price. I think I'll cancel my pre-order for the 17 f1.8 as well. I wanted it for an upcoming trip but now with the 12-50 and the 45 I think I'm good for a while.
