Amazon price £1040

Said to have 5 in stock, sold by Amazon and supplied by Olympus:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01M8PAJ...SIN=B01M8PAJQ1

I haven’t checked how that compares with the 15% direct Oly discount.

Stunning value, I’d say, especially with the new firmware.

£1,061.65 after discount at Oly Store, an extra £21.65, but might appeal to some as the special silver version is available at that price. N.B. A £150 'instant discount appears at the checkout stage.

There's been some good prices at Amazon early morning recently, with some lenses £100's cheaper in certain colours, possibly glitches because they've quickly gone back up again. For example the silver 75mm f1.8 was £300 cheaper than the black version for a couple of hours, plus there's the Summer/June lens cashback promotion. I think one colour of the 25mm f1.8 fell by something like £150 for a very short period.

The OMD EM1 Mk2 should have been the above price at Amazon yesterday, but the £150 'instant discount' at the checkout wasn't working when I checked. They have now changed the item price and removed reference to the instant discout. It might be worth checking if they've done that will all the kit versions, because if they've left the £150 instant discount wording in anywhere there might be a chance of getting on chat and getting a double discount.

Re: Amazon price £1040

It's the season for offers at the moment - lots of manufacturers have a confusing mix of price reductions, discounts, cashbacks, trade-in offers etc.

Had a look at that and it says under the order button that it comes in frustration free packaging. I've had SD cards in that but never heard of cameras having other packaging other than manufacturers????

Re: Amazon price £1040

Not personally interested but took a look all the same and then saw this which IMO is an incredibly good deal and by far even better value .............

Oooh...tempting! Only for the great price, I really don’t need another body, although pair it with a nice wide angle lens or perhaps a macro and jobs a good ‘un.

That camera isn't sold by Amazon, it is Amazon Marketplace, and the seller feedback has 10% negative. I always check.

Re: Amazon price £1040

So are we saying this isn’t quite the bargain it first seemed?
