That's the special edition black version.

Any chance of getting some of you to purchase via our sibling site's Amazon shop:

I presume that when the offer comes in your sibling site's Amazon shop will immediately reflect the temporary Lightning Deal price, as per Amazon's normal webpage for such offered items?
Good idea if so!

How much? When I go to Amazon it is up for 899.00, was 949.99.
Is that the Lighting deal?

Dave, you need to be using the right browser; I know the deals don't show in Opera.

Amazon.co.uk: Today's Deals Amazon.co.uk: Today's Deals



Firefox works OK, hit the "Todays Deals" link above the search bar on the home page of you can't follow the above link in this post.

There should be a scrollable horizontal window which shows current and forthcoming deals.

Re: Olympus LE M.ZUIKO 12mm 1:2.0 ED Lens - Amazon Lightning Deal at 16:59 today

Anyone know the difference between the normal and limited edition models other than the black colour and the inclusion of a hood with the latter?

As far as I know, the colour and accessories are the only difference. Functionally and optically they are the same. This my understanding based on extensive recent feature and price research, not on actual experience in using either or both lenses.

Re: Olympus LE M.ZUIKO 12mm 1:2.0 ED Lens - Amazon Lightning Deal at 16:59 today

Just in case others are having problems finding the relevant Amazon page/s, here are the main product page link:
[It is worth pointing out that I believe Amazon sometimes targets specific offers to registered customers based on their normal purchasing - if linking to an offer page, it is sometimes worth logging out of Amazon and using a different browser that hopefully doesn't have your log in details automatically fill in, then search Amazon for the item and then copy that page link!! Longwinded but sometimes easier for others]
As noted by Ian, you can also hopefully make the purchase through http://<b>http://fourthirds-user.com..._guide.php</b>

The product page if you want to do some research first can be found at:
Olympus Limited Edition M.ZUIKO 12mm 1:2.0 DIGITAL ED: Amazon.co.uk: Camera & Photo Olympus Limited Edition M.ZUIKO 12mm 1:2.0 DIGITAL ED: Amazon.co.uk: Camera & Photo


Normally 'Today's Lightning Deal' price will be shown on the product page as well as on the 'Today's deals' page.
The Lightning Deal can be found by clicking the text that says 'Today's Deal' at the very top of each page, let the page load, and there will then be a scrollable window near the top of the page under 'Today's Lightning Deals'
At the moment the deal will not show, as it is not available until 4:59PM today, when it does then click to buy as quickly as possible before some other micro fourthirds enthusiast gets there - you then have a limited time in which you can decide and if need be then cancel!

Interestingly you can have the non-Limited Edition silver version for 552.50 + lens hood at about 60 at

£750, which even after the discount it way too high for me when WEX are doing the silver one for £556.
A shade under £200 for black paint seems excessive to my bank manager; here's hoping the black paint sticks better on this than on my OM-D
