Refurbished Olympus E-M1 II body for $1500

The new condition Olympus E-M1 II body only goes for $1800 at authorized dealers such as Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon itself.

But if you want to save some, off to the Olympus USA Outlet store we go, where coupon code GREENMONDAY gets you the refurbished Olympus E-M1 II body for $1500 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus USA warranty. The coupon drops the price from $1700 to $1500.

PS: the addition of the E-M1 II and the coupon seems to suggest that more things will be loaded to the Olympus USA store, but this is only my speculation…

Refurbished Olympus 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO (m43) for $1050

Also in-stock as of the time of writing at the Olympus USA store is the manufacturer refurbished Olympus ED 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO micro four thirds lens for $1050 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus USA warranty.

This is one of two lenses currently listed at the Olympus USA store. Mayhaps they are/were saving them for “Green Monday”? [total speculation]

Olympus Outlet Store Watch: Empty Again BUT New Condition Sales Continue!

The Olympus Outlet store (the refurbished section) has achieved Emptiness once again! “There are no products matching the selection” says an error message sandwiches between the website’s header and footer.

However, the good news is that their Black-Cyber Friday-Monday sales continue on their new condition products, including the two $100 lenses, the expected 40-150mm and perhaps the surprise $100 lens, the 30mm f3.5 MACRO.

Monday: refurbished Olympus E-M1 II for $1500 after coupon

One more thing from the Olympus Outlet store coupon CYBERSAVINGS. It drops the price of everything there by 20% with the exception of the refurbished Olympus E-M1 II body which drops from $1700 to $1500 when you use the promo code CYBERSAVINGS until 11:59pm ET on Monday. You get a 90-day Olympus USA warranty.

In new condition, this is going for $1700 at authorized Olympus USA dealers such as Amazon and Adorama and B&H Photo. The last two offer 4% promotional rewards, that’s $68~ to be used in future purchases at those stores.

Monday Only System Switch Temptation: Refurbished Olympus E-M5 II with TRIO of F2.8 PRO ZOOMS + Battery Grip + More for $2752 [VS $4400+ in NEW Condition]

On the PRO side of things in the Olympus Outlet Store you get 20% off with coupon code CYBERSAVINGS on the Olympus E-M5 II PRO KIT listing which goes for $3440 before coupon. Entering the coupon in the shopping cart (you don’t have to sign-in or sign-up to enter/test the coupon), drops the price of $2752 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus USA warranty. The sale ends on actual Cyber Monday at 11:59pm ET.

For $2752, you get the following manufacturer refurbished items:

+ Olympus E-M5 II body black
+ Olympus 7-14mm f2.8 M34ds lens
+ Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 M43rds lens
+ Olympus 40-150mm f2.8 M43rds lens
+ Olympus HLD-8 Grip/Battery Holder
+ Olympus BLN-1 battery
+ Olympus CBG-10 System Bag

Price-checking these in new condition and with the current Black Cyber-Friday Monday sales at authorized dealers such as Adorama has these new condition prices:

+ the trio of f2.8 PRO zooms goes for $3200 ($1300 + $1100 + $800)
+ the E-M5 II body only goes for $800
+ that’s $4000 already
+ the battery grip goes for $173
+ the extra BLN-1 battery goes for $50
+ the Olympus CBG-10 System Bag goes for $190
+ total of $4413

So you are paying $1660 less than the new condition prices! A system switch temptation? A stock up purchase?

Refurbished Olympus FL-600R for $160 after coupon

The Olympus FL-600R flash was not discounted in this round of instant savings, it remains at $299 in new condition at B&H Photo and Adorama, so the 20% off coupon code CYBERSAVINGS is a welcome discount as it drops it from $200 to $160 at the Olympus Outlet store.

20% off Olympus Outlet store with coupon

Here it is! Cyber Monday coupon CYBERSAVINGS a total of eighteen refurbished Olympus items in the Olympus Outlet store.

Now before you buy, make sure you compare the prices to the new condition versions of those lenses and cameras, some of which are heavily discounted in the Olympus Instant Savings.

Olympus Barrel Style Lens Cases for $8 to $13

If you only need a couple of lens cases, you can put your Prime membership to work! The trio of Olympus Barrel Style Lens Cases is on sale for $8 for the Ultra Compact, $10 for the the Compact, and $13 for the Full Size. Limit up to five per size per customer.

These are sold and shipped by Amazon itself and NOT Add-On items, so as a Prime member, you can buy one and still get free 2-day shipping. Or select slow shipping (no rush credit) and get the $1 digital credit or the $10 Amazon Restaurants credit. It’s harder to damage a lens case in longer transit. As a Post Office worker used to say, “you can’t damage a book”.

For fit, check descriptions, reviews, answered questions, dimensions, etc. The names of Compact and Full Size are relative. No matter how large the lens case, it will have a hard time fitting this πŸ™‚

Olympus 60mm f2.8 MACRO [m43] for $300

The Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro (M43rds) lens went for $500 in new condition last week but now, thanks to the new Olympus Lens Instant Savings, the lens is going for $300 in new condition at Amazon and at Adorama and at B&H Photo along with $12 promotional rewards at Ado and B&H.

Olympus Outlet Store refilled with 8 items

As of the time of writing, eight items now appear at the Olympus Outlet Store, up from zero before. From what I recall, they were there before it got emptied, the E-M1 II, some lenses, and the FL-600R for $200, and a couple of converter/lens-cap thingies.

So the theory that they emptied the Outlet store for Black Friday and would refill it for Cyber Monday is on the right track. Just like Voq = Tyler πŸ˜‰

After all, some of their deals are better than refurbished, for example, the Olympus 30mm f3.5 Macro [M43] for $99 at Adorama and at the Olympus USA store and at B&H Photo

Olympus 30mm f3.5 Macro [M43] for $99

OMG how did I miss this? The new condition Olympus 30mm f3.5 Macro Micro Four Thirds lens is on sale for $99 with free shipping and $4 promotional rewards at Adorama and at the Olympus USA store and at B&H Photo where it is another one of their hot 140+ B&H Black Friday Sales (there are two pages of deals there)…

(ENDED) KEH Weekly USED Coupon Deals: Used: Hasselblad H2 (H1 U) MF Body for $365, Olympus 14-45/3.5-5.6 [FT/DSLR] for $29+, Canon BG-E3 for $7.50+, Etc

These offers expired…

NOTE that all your eligible USED purchases (“BGN” or better condition) at KEH until 12/31/17 automatically get a 365-day warranty instead of their usual 180-day warranty. No coupon is needed for this. Conditions worse than “BGN”, such as “AS IS” or “UG” (Ugly) are not and were not eligible for the 365/180-day warranties.

Mystery continues: Olympus Outlet Store still Empty

I don’t know if Olympus is “saving” the refurbished cameras and lenses for Cyber Monday, or if they want to “direct” shoppers towards their new condition products, or maybe they actually run out? Their Olympus Outlet store sat out the Black Friday festivities, it remained empty, and it still is empty as of the time of writing. I will be monitoring the situation and post updates as we get closer to Cyber Monday.

Olympus 45mm f1.8 for $199 [m43]

The biggest percent price drop of the Olympus Black Friday sales is 50% and two lenses are doing this. The first of the two is the good old Olympus 40-150mm f4-5.6 R M43rds lens returning to $99 again at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon itself. At B&H and Adorama you get $4 promotional rewards as well, while at Amazon you get a $5 statement credit if you pay with Prime VISA or Discover with activated Q4 rewards. With free shipping but not a Wattpad subscription πŸ™‚

Olympus Stylus Tough TG-5 drops to $399

Elementproof cameras have survived the smartphones onslaught because they have something you can’t replicate with a smartphone, their toughness. Which brings us to the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-5, dropping from $449 to $399 with free shipping at Adorama as part of the Black Friday festivities.

Olympus Trio of F2.8 PRO Zooms drop $100 each

The prices of the other kits are appropriately adjust as well.

In-Stock Now: Olympus 45mm f1.2 PRO [m43]

I am posting as fast I can type, although how fast I can think is the limiting factor here πŸ™‚ Prime your E-system cameras! The new condition Olympus 45mm f1.2 ED PRO lens is in-stock and shipping at B&H Photo at its starting price of $1199 with free expedited shipping.

The lens is not on the list of the Olympus Black Friday lenses but since these start on Thursday, you may want to add it to your shopping cart and wait until the Black Friday Olympus deals go live in case it gets discounted. It is unusual for a “just released” professional tier product to get discounted, but Thursday is just 11 hours away in the Eastern Time Zone πŸ™‚

BF preparations: many items gone from Olympus Outlet store

I’m assuming that this is preparation for the Black Friday sales, in addition to posting a preview of their sales, Olympus has also pulled 2/3rds of the refurbished products available at their Outlet store. I’m assuming some of these will resurface during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday madness ~ unless a millionaire went a shopping spree last night and bought them all πŸ™‚

Olympus posts Black Friday Preview (Sales Begin Thursday)

SPOILER ALERT! If you don’t want to be spoiled about the Olympus Black Friday deals that begin Thursday 11/23/17, do not check the Olympus Black Friday preview. The sale prices go live tomorrow (Thursday). These are the new condition cameras and lenses sold at various authorized Olympus dealers.

+ new low on their E-M1 II flagship, it will drop from $1800 to $1700
+ E-M10 III kits drop $100, body for $550, with lens for $650

Here are screenshots of the lens teasers, it’s much faster (and more accurate) than me transcribing pictures πŸ™‚

Refurbished Olympus 8mm f1.8 fisheye [m43] for $660

We don’t want fans of fisheye lenses to feel left out, so here we go! The new condition Olympus 8mm f1.8 ED Fisheye PRO lens goes for $900 in new condition at authorized dealers such as Amazon itself and B&H Photo but if you want to save $240 on the price…

Refurbished Olympus 25mm f1.8 for $200 [m43]

+ Black 25mm f1.8 for $200
+ Silver 25mm f1.8 for $230

Refurbished Olympus PEN-F for $700

Some people use pens to write with ink, others use them to write with light. If you are of the latter persuasion, the manufacturer refurbished Olympus PEN-F (black) is back in-stock for $700 with free shipping and a 90-day USA warranty at the Olympus USA Outlet Store.

At the moment, in new condition at authorized dealers it goes for $1000, such as B&H Photo and Amazon itself.

Refurbished Olympus 17mm f2.8 [m43] for $90

Let them have pancake lenses said Marie Photographette! And the Olympus USA Outlet Store obeyed the order…

Refurbished Olympus E-M10 II Body Only for $300

The manufacturer refurbished Olympus E-M10 II body only (second generation) is now in-stock and ready to ship for $300 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus USA warranty as part of the Olympus USA Outlet Store refill. It is in-stock as of the time of writing…

In new condition, this goes for $550 at authorized dealers such as Adorama and B&H Photo and $650 with the 14-42 or $750 with the 12-50. This was the price of the body only two weeks ago as well when I posted the Mirrorless Price Charts.

If you prefer the refurbished E-M10 II with the 14-42mm EZ, it goes for $430 in black or silver at the Olympus Outlet store, which is exactly the price of the refurbished 14-42mm EZ lens on its own. So if you go refurbished, the delta between the body only and the “with 14-42 EZ” is +$150, while in new condition is +$100. In other words, if you don’t feel compelled to have the 14-42 EZ lens, you can also look into getting a different lens, for example, a $90 pancake.

Refurbished Olympus E-M10 Body Only for $200

The manufacturer refurbished Olympus E-M10 body only (first generation) is now in-stock and ready to ship for $200 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus USA warranty as part of the Olympus USA Outlet Store refill. It is in-stock as fo the time of writing…

More on these later on, as, unfortunately, I am not IBM’s Watson and I cannot “digest” hundreds of lenses (over 500 of them in these two posts) on the fly. Not to mention that glass causes indigestion. Mayhaps I’ll start with the plastic lenses first πŸ™‚

Olympus and Nikon Instant Savings organized at Adorama
