OM-D E-M1 pricing and offers (UK)

Body £1299

12-50 kit £1499.99

12-40 kit £1949.99

12-40 by itself £899 (not confirmed but about right)

HLD-7 grip £199? (not confirmed - but about right)

You can claim a free MMF-3 Micro Four Thirds lens adapter when you buy an E-M1 until the end of November. You need to have registered an E-System Four Thirds camera (having a Four Thirds lens is not enough - you need a camera serial number).

You can also claim a free HLD-7 grip by the end of October with an E-M1 purchase.

Re: OM-D E-M1 pricing and offers (UK)

I figure i'll want one sometime in the next 18 months, i may as well get one quick so i can enjoy it for longer before i then purchase it's replacement.

I just read some where, i forget where, that pre-registering before the october sales gets a free grip !?

Oosh, the new lens specs. An image of the 40-150 f2.8, and mention of a pro wide-angle zoom and a pro super telephoto prime in the pipeline.

Re: OM-D E-M1 pricing and offers (UK)

What still is not clear to me is: do I need a converter to attach my Four Third lenses to it? Or is the converter needed for the Micro 4/3

Yes. You will need the MMF-3 adapter referred to in the OP.

Re: OM-D E-M1 pricing and offers (UK)

It's a Micro Four Thirds camera so you need an adapter to fit Four Thirds lenses.

EDIT: Pete types faster than me!

Re: OM-D E-M1 pricing and offers (UK)

Those prices are a LOT less than I was expecting! The lens especially (as part of the kit) ONLY 650 - I anticipated around 900. I wonder what it wiill be as a seperate purchase?

I sense a real bargain here guys. Those who can afford it should pre-order quickly before Olympus change their minds and increase the price to what it's worth!

Webex have the 12-40 f2.8 listed as 900 to buy on it's own, so 250 discount if bought with the E-M1.

WEX are bundling a battery grip for customers who pre order the OM-D E-M1. Olympus appear to be giving existing E system users a MMF-3 adapter as well.

Great price if bought together but how good is the new lens compared to my 12-60?
