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, 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 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.
