Exclamation Amazon deal? E-M1 Mark ii with free grip 1369

Sounds like a great deal to me and if you purchase via the following link you will earn the site an affiliate commission:

https://amzn.to/2OnECDl

Even better, buy via Amazon Prime - try a 30-day free trial membership:

Is this not considered a good deal or am I preaching to the converted?

It is a very good deal but the wife would kill me if I went for it, especially as I already have one

Cheers,

That's probably it - everyone on the egroup who realistically wanted one has got theirs already

Or perhaps could currently afford/justify one

Still tempted by the 60mm macro, but I already have the 35 & 50mm ones plus the 150mm Sigma.

Has anyone tried focus stacking with the 40-150mm F2.8 plus a couple of extension tubes?

Re: Amazon deal? E-M1 Mark ii with free grip 1369

Great price thanks Ian, but I still find the Mk 1 does nearly all I need (I have two), and I prefer the smaller size. Very occasionally I might need the speed features, but I have had the Pany f2.8 pair for years, and they won't do Pro Capture. I think it might work with my old Mk1 50-200, not sure. I made the decision early on not to upgrade at the moment, and will probably wait until there is a real leap in sensor performance. I had the free grip with the Mk I, and hardly ever use it. With the taller grip of the Mk II, I doubt I ever would need it, particularly now I've swapped my Oly 7-14 f4 for the f2.8 version on here.
