OM-D E-M5 from Amazon at 892.00

Black Body only - 11% reduction - in stock with free delivery. All other combinations are still at list price.

Amazon Amazon



Not 781 but a worthwhile reduction I think.

Ah well, it's black, you see. Obviously silver attracts a premium as it's a camera for those with class and impeccable taste.

I'd have a neon orange one with electric blue stripes, day-glo pink trimmings, glitter and tinsel if it was cheap enough!

Re: OM-D E-M5 from Amazon at 892.00

For any Australians reading this, there are a few places that have been discounting the E-M5 kits from the start by buying through a wholesale group (of Aussie stock) & that's how I got mine so cheap at the time (from $1499 down to $1337 for the 12-50 kit at DigiDirect) some others are a little cheaper too (but check that it is Aussie stock).

Watch carefully the Amazon prices on the silver body - it may well drop lower than 892. Amazon runs a pricing system based on projected sales and stock turn, it basically means everything they stock has to turn over revenue of 'x' within a period of time of it coming into stock. When demand slows they get overstock, the system then discounts quite heavily. It is a very successful way of doing automated stock management - but gives buyers an opportunity window on newish products as they pass the demand hump.

Re: OM-D E-M5 from Amazon at 892.00

After a couple of brief, hefty discounts by Amazon, prices had returned to list again. However, today SRS are offering the body only and body + 12-50 lens kit at 50 off list (949 and 1099.) I suppose Amazon will match those prices. The prices do seem to be holding up remarkably well.

I presume that supply is now keeping up with demand?

Anyone heard anything on the battery front? (not that I need any)

I'm still waiting for my eyecup.
