Bargains at the Photography Show

Well I am not going until Monday but if anyone is going on the Saturday or the Sunday, could I respectfully ask them to pop over to Camera world and take a picture of the price lists for the Olympus stuff that they will be selling at show prices. If that pic could be posted here, it would be much appreciated.

Re: Bargains at the Photography Show

Cameraworld had the 75mm at 635 at the SWPP show in Jan, I know because I bought one that was way cheaper than I had seen it - Park had 10% of olympus lenses but then the were still around 660 for the 75mm
I guess will be similar

Amazing price. Can't wait to see the price of the other Oly lenses.

Re: Bargains at the Photography Show

Olympus deals and prices. LCE has Olympus kit too, but not quite as low as Cameraworld. Both are doing part-ex at the show. I traded my Sigmas for the 25mm, didn't get much, but brought the price that much lower.

Re: Bargains at the Photography Show

having a look at the list some of these prices are not that much cheaper than SRS prices. RRP is higher than SRS and their own website. Compare 9-18mm £450, website £475, but showing RRP of £644? So really a £25 savings only. Are they trying to kid somebody? Will the 25mm come down to £275 eventually??? Hmmmm

Re: Bargains at the Photography Show

Thanks for posting these. Most useful. Everything is against RRP which is rarely what you have to pay online. The bargain of the show has to be the 25mm. Pity the 12-40 is not on the list. Did LCE have any different lenses to Cameraworld? With regards to p/ex, did you take everything that you wanted to trade all boxed up with the expectation that you could do this at the show?

Re: Bargains at the Photography Show

Thanks for posting the list, I will probably buy a 25mm and possibly a 17 f1.8 - and trade in the Pana 25.

You are welcome. I didn't get into what LCE brought for Olympus, and I didn't even see any Olympus adverts on their stand. The 25mm was 30 more than CW, but they would price match.

No I didn't bring any boxes, I had no intention of getting the 25mm, I never expected it to be at that price....I was thinking 300, based on what they did last year with the 60mm. I nearly only brought the camera and 2 extra lenses, (not the Sigmas), and left the rest at home. I have tickets for Monday and told CW I would bring the boxes then. They weren't to worried about it, but when I buy previously loved equipment one thing I calculate is how much original stuff I get, so to me the boxes are a plus. Sigmas have a 3 year warranty, I don't think that has run out yet, not sure if it is transferable though.

There is free public wifi at the NEC, although it's not very fast!

I noticed, but I took the pics full size and didn't have an app to resize them and the Oly one didn't have that feature, so I waited till I got home.
