Refurbished Olympus SP-100 Superzoom (50x) for $187 [and more additions]

The Prime Day coupon expired at the Get Olympus store but it looks like they have some more additions, including another blast from the bast fixed lens digital camera, it is the factory reconditioned Olympus Stylus SP-100 for $187~ with free shipping. This is a 50x optical zoom, with a 90-day Olympus repair warranty, and 30-day return policy.

Some more cameras and/or lenses and/or accessories got added but I’m hazy post-PrimeDay as to which ones were not there before 🙂

There is a nice choice of Prime lenses there, and if you are not afraid of silver lenses, the factory reconditioned Olympus 45mm f1.8 goes for $200, $40 less than the black color scheme. So one could build a prime lens arsenal by going refurbished instead of buying only one or two in new condition.

PS: occasionally they drop Four Thirds (DSLR) gear in there, so if you are interested in M43rds, to be on the safe side, make sure check that the lenses you buy are “M.Zuiko”. This also serves as a memo to self to remember to check before I post 🙂

    Indeed. Primes, zooms, cameras — as one who’s gone this route often if not exclusively, I can say I’ve never had reason to regret doing so. I do prefer buying manufacturer refurbs. Most of my experience has been with Olympus refurbs. If you can find even the subtlest difference between brand-new and refurb from Olympus your powers of inspection greatly exceed mine. Expect a different box, a user guide on disc instead of a book, although a book can be ordered for $10, and all the same standard accompaniments such as neckstrap, lens caps, etc., as you’d get buying new.

    1. Thanks for all the details! Yes, especially for primes with their lower long-term risk, manufacturer refurbished is a pretty good deal when the price is right.
