Best price for new body I've seen was 1,174 after cashback at SRS & Cameraworld last Black Friday.

But if the code JASPER15 is still working at the Oly Store, https://shop.olympus.eu/en_GB/cameras/om-d/e-m1-mark-ii it would be 1,189.15 for either black or limited edition silver.

EDIT: Just checked and that code still works and takes 15% (209.85) off, making it 39.85 less than anything listed on Camerapricebuster.


P.S. if you're interested in getting an OMD EM1 mk2 + a 12-100 PRO lens, there's an unexpected 150 saving that appears at the checkout https://shop.olympus.eu/en_GB/camera...-100mm-pro-kit reducing the 2,199 price to 2,049. Using JASPER15 then takes another 307.35 off, getting the price down to 1,741.65, an extra over cost of only 552.50 for the 12-100 PRO (859 at HDEW) which seems to be a bit of a bargain. The best price on Camerapricebuster for this kit is 1,979, 237.35 more than buying from the Oly Store.

'Only' 765 more than my EM5 mk2 + 12-40, but something I would only have seriously considered if both camera body size and lens size were not my main requirements.
