Olympus E-M1 Mark II Body Only for $849 [or USED for $637]

It’s the same song and dance every time. When a new flagship comes out, the prices of the previous flagship go down. And as of the time of writing, the new condition Olympus E-M1 Mark II body only is down to $849 at authorized Olympus USA dealers such as B&H Photo and Amazon and also at Adorama’s where you can optionally hit the “Create Your Bundle and Save” and purchase together with the camera various Sigma, Rokinon, 7artisan and Kamlan lenses for small combined purchase discounts. The discounts are small ($15 to $30 per lens, but some of these lenses are very low cost), but the discounts are stackable, so if you buy three different lenses, you’ll stack three different discounts.

On the other hand, if you believe in “The Way of The Used”, you can get it for $638 in “Condition 9 – minor scuffs and surface marks” at B&H Photo USED

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).
