Re: OM-D E-M1 Accessory cashback promotion

I didn't take the E-M1 at the end October here (in Oz) & the promotion was supposed to finish then, but I have just noticed Olympus Australia has now extended it till the end of November. Now, do I get that Stylist 1 (asking myself out loud here ) I was considering (it could be a lot of fun) or do I get that E-M1 body after all to use my Oly 14-54 II & Sigma 150 macro lenses on (as well as handling the other M4/3's lenses I already have)? Decisions, decisions! The local supplier has dropped his price by $50 too (to $1499).

It seems like the UK cashback is also worth thinking about too (for those in the UK).

I was told about this last week when I got my em1. However, I was told it wasn't on lenses, only general accessories. Can someone clarify this?

Well, that E-M5 would make for a very very good backup to an E-M1.

Yes, this would be useful to know. I have submitted a claim for the 60mm f/2.8 lens that I bought along with my E-M1 kit on the 19th of this month; it would be helpful to know whether that is a good claim!

Question Re: OM-D E-M1 Accessory cashback promotion

Is the offer for the M4/3 to 4/3 adapter still running as I can find no mention of it. This is a deal maker/ breaker for me as I have a lot of 4/3 glass.

Re: OM-D E-M1 Accessory cashback promotion

I have had an e-mail from Olympus to-day confirming that my cashback application (for the 60mm f/2.8 macro lens) has been approved, and that I will be getting my £100 within 28 days, so it seems that this does apply to lenses.

As to Yorkie's query - I suspect, if I recall correctly, although I am not entirely sure, that the MMF-3 promotion only applied to pre-orders.

Re: OM-D E-M1 Accessory cashback promotion

I am presuming that if you qualified for the free grip and mm you can't claim the 100 cash back on a 200 purchase. I wasn't told this when I bought my em1 even though LCE sent me an information sheet all about the cash back.
And there was me thinking I could end up paying a little 100 to get the 45mm f1.8 !

Re: OM-D E-M1 Accessory cashback promotion

Most promotional offers do not allow different promotions to be used in conjunction with each other, as that would usually be uneconomic for the vendor.

Read section nine!

9. Customers who have already claimed the HLD-7 on our previous promotion are not eligible for this offer.
