Plus another £125 cashback from Olympus That's a real bargain for a brand new lens.

Unfortunately you also have to buy an EM1 Mk2 to get the cashback.

I am sorely tempted by the amazon offer, but I am not likely to use the lens much before next spring so it's not the best time to buy it.

Mark as far as I can see you don't have to buy the camera as well. If you look at the list the cash back is £125 on the lens alone. It's £175 if you buy the camera. That makes the lens £774 which is very nearly down to what I paid for mine second hand! If I didn't have one I'd definitely go for this deal. If you wait till next spring it will no doubt be back up to over a grand by then!

I'm very interested in this with the cashback but I can't see the 12-100 in the winter cashback for just the lens, it looks like as stated above you need to buy the body.

Re: Olympus M4/3 12-100mm £899.00 at Amazon.

The T&C's seem pretty unambiguous to me

A sizeable extract below, but the key statement is

Together with one OM-D E-M1 Mark II participants can claim up to 3 non-identical M.Zuiko PRO lenses which have to be bought together with the camera (one receipt) and in this way obtain £125 per lens."

They do have another cash back promotion on at the moment, but it doesn't include the 12-100mm.

https://www.olympus.co.uk/site/en/c/...ons/index.html

Are there any other promotions people know of that i am missing?

Thats very sneeky they say camera or lens in the initial offer advert but if you go in to the t&c details you are correct it says you have to buy the camera as well. Not impressed with Olympus for that very missleading. Sorry i was only looking at the headline offer initially as i wasn't considering buying one. Thd amazon offer itself is still pretty good though.

I agree with you, Phil. When the promotion was originally launched, it was even less clear. The statment I quoted was added at a later date.

The 12-100 is a lens i would like to have, for use when I'm out hiking. The guys I go walking with go too fast to enable me to change lenses, so I just use the 12-40. Sometimes more reach would open up picture possibilities not available with the 12-40. I wouldn't miss the stop of aperture. Generally I find 12mm wide enough.

The amazon price is tempting even without the cash back. But i won't be doing much walking at this time of year and I really need to replace my 7 year old iMac (I'm hoping for a Black Friday deal).

OMD EM5i and two EM1i, all faulty at some point).

The size of the beast just puts me off, against all that M43 stood for.

I'll stick with me 12-40 thank you.

Oh, and the loss of one stop...f4 to f2.8

I thought that too Dave but I'm a convert now I have one. Don't change the lens very often.

I'll second that. I took an instant dislike to it size-wise. I always loved the 12-40.

BTW has anyone noticed how with mirrorless we've been "conned" into spending a lot more money: the 12-100 is equivalent to a 24-200 in full frame terms. A useful lens but pretty expensive when I think what my Nikon 28-200 and Tokina 24-200 cost me years ago. The Tokina stayed on my D1x most of the time for travel and though it was slated by those "in the know" I took some of my best travel photographs with it and they stand to this day.

Mal.
