Re: Free 45mm f/1.8 if you buy an E-M5 between 15th October and year's end

I don't know them, but they are based in New York. I presume they are including UK taxes. It certainly won't qualify for the Oly UK offer, as the stock is not sourced from them. You'll probably get 1 year warranty from Oly, not the two years you get in Europe. Watch out for their 3 year extended warranty, which adds 162 to the price.

Unfortunately Amazon's price has gone up to 1138 at the time of this post.
I found it much much cheaper at SLR Hut, which seems to be a legit outfit, so I have a couple of questions and would be really grateful for inputs:
1. Does anyone else have experience with SLR HUT (http://slrhut.co.uk/product/ID926C5/google)
2. Are purchases from this seller eligible for the promotion?

As always, with an unknown supplier, entering its name in google.com makes sense. You may draw your own conclusions.

The rules are simple.

They have to buy direct from Olympus UK and so anyone outside is not included.

That way you are sure to get the Euro two year warranty as well.

Thanks guys. Does anyone here know of any authorised UK dealer selling the body + kit lens for around £1000 or lower?

You must be kidding! It's never got anywhere near that low. Cheapest at the moment from proper UK dealers is £1138 I think. Nearly all the same price. Cheapest in the US is around £700, with one year's warranty, and no offers. If you take into account the Oly UK offer, it's not far off, plus 2 years warranty.
