Instant Savings on Sony DSLRs and Olympus M43rds cameras

In parallel with the Lens Instant Savings, there's also a new round of camera instant savings from Sony DSLRs (A58 w/18-55 for $550) and Olympus M43rds. Here too, the prices are "synced" across authorized + reputable Sony dealers as soon as their servers catch up with the new pricing. No expiration dates are mentioned.

"Synced" is a euphemism for price control and price stagnation. If the camera manufacturers really cared so much about local stores, they should be selling them their cameras at a steeper discount, that way the local stores have more flexibility - they can price-match the internets or even sell for less. But we all know the manufacturers don't care about the local stores. They are using them as a shield to cover up their roundabout price control.

Instant Savings on Sony and Olympus Lenses (mirrorless and SLR)

It is Sunday and this means a new round of manufacturer initiated instant savings! Both Sony (DSLR and NEX lenses) and Olympus (mostly M43rds, some 43rds) have new rounds of Lens Instant Savings. The prices are "synced" across authorized + reputable Sony dealers as soon as their servers catch up with the new pricing.

Olympus launches mail-in rebates for E-P3, E-PL3, E5 (DSLR), and lenses (M43, 43)

If you are a fan of mail-in rebates and Olympus camera gear, rejoice! Olympus has launched a new mail-in rebate promotion on a variety of cameras and lenses. The cameras are various E-P3 and E-PL3 kits, along with the E-5 Four Thirds DSLR (not the E-M5 m43rds mirrorless). Eligible lenses include both 43rds and Micro Four Thirds lenses. You can see them all in the PDF file of the rebate when you click through the mail-in rebate links at B&H Photo.

The mail-in rebate amounts are $200 for the E-5, $100 for the E-P3 kits, $50 for the E-PL3 kits, and $100 for most of the lenses (range is $20 for converters up to $100). The promotional period is June 28 through July 21, 2012. Up to three items.

This is a mail-in rebate, you have to cut UPC codes, fill in forms, mail stuff, and all the dreary stuff that have made mail-in rebates so popular. The amounts will be delivered in the form of a prepaid VISA card. They will not send cashable checks. See the PDF file with all the details at the B&H Photo pages.

This is a separate promotion from the previously mentioned VF-3 viewfinder promotion. I don't know if they are stackable.
