Olympus E-M10 Mark III with 14-42 EZ for $450 (or instead E-M10 III w/25mm f1.8 for $650)

“Take pictures with” kits are all the rage during the Black Friday – Holiday shopping season for the obvious reasons. So if you or someone you know wants to get started with M43rds, one of the offers right now is the new condition Olympus E-M10 III with 14-42 f3.5-5.6 EZ going for $450 in the black color scheme. This is currently the same price as the body only!

On the other hand, if you prefer the body only and a prime lens, start at the E-M10 III body only page and then click on the “Build a Bundle” little cyan link. This will bring an option to add to your shopping cart the Olympus 25mm f1.8 Step Up Kit (the lens with a bag and a memory card) for $200 more. So you’d be paying $650 for the E-M10 III with the 25mm f1.8 lens. The lens goes for $300 on its own (without the bag and card).

Panasonic ZS70 travel zoom with Panasonic Battery/Charger Kit and More Extras for $298

No matter how many extra lenses and smoke and mirrors smartphones use, they can’t replace a superzoom digital camera. Which is why they still exist πŸ™‚

+ at B&H Photo you also get a 64GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC

+ at Adorama it’s the usual accessorapalooza that also includes Corel software options…

Since we are speaking Panasonic ZS-series [we already mentioned the ZS100 offer yesterday], there’s also an offer on the ZS200 for $598 but no free Panasonic battery/charger kit. But retailers do include their own freebies as follows:

+ at B&H Photo you get the 64GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC and a Ruggard camera case

+ at Adorama it’s the usual accessorapalooza

For both of these cameras you have the option to extend the original 1-year warranty to a 3-year warranty for FREE from Panasonic by registering. Details on the PDF file at the participating dealers above…

YMMV: MyBestBuy $5 Bonus Certificate (expires Sat PM)

This is a YMMV! If you are participating in the Best Buy rewards program (“My Best Buy”), check your Inbox for an email from Best Buy titled “Drop Everything”. Inside you will find a “click to activate” offer that gets you a $5 bonus certificate that expires on 11/28/20 at night. This can be used online or in-store. I am at the entry-level Best Buy rewards tier and haven’t purchased anything from them in a while, so it may be a “reactivate inactive users” type of a promotion. It’s also possible that customers in higher reward tiers may be offered a higher amount, the “spend more to profit (for them) / save (for the consumer) more” philosophy πŸ™‚

Here’s a screenshot of the relevant part in the email:

PS: it is possible the offer may have been in earlier emails as well, but with the avalanche of Black Friday emails, I’m not able to open them all or read every one of them end to end. If only I was a 16-core Ryzen, instead I’m a 2010 Celeron πŸ˜‰
