If you are thinking of switching to Micro Four Thirds or making a big lens purchase, there is a hot new combined purchase promotion at Amazon that offers stackable combined purchase discounts if you buy one of select cameras and up to nine different participating M43rds lenses.
Here is a screenshot of the shopping cart with one eligible Olympus M43rds camera (E-M5 II body) and the nine different Olympus eligible M43rds lenses. As you can see, there are nine different discounts, one for each lens. You can buy anywhere from one to nine lenses, and get a discount for each lens ~ purchased together with an eligible camera.
NOTE: ALL items must be sold and shipped by Amazon itself, NOT by 3rd-party sellers if you want to get ALL the combined purchase discounts!
Buy One Of These Eligible Cameras
+ Olympus E-PL8 (all the colors and kit options are eligible, $550 to $650; six options)
+ Olympus E-M5 II body (black) for $900
+ Olympus E-M5 II body (silver) for $900
+ Olympus E-M1 body (black) for $1100
+ Olympus PEN-F Body (black) for $1200
+ Olympus PEN-F Body (silver) for $1200
+ Olympus E-M1 II body (black) for $2000
Buy Up to Nine of these Lenses in SAME Shopping Cart
The combined purchase discount amount varies from $100 to $300 per lens, depending on which lens you select. Here they are, in discount order:
+ $300 OFF Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 PRO
+ $300 OFF Olympus 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ
+ $200 OFF Olympus 40-150mm f2.8
+ $200 OFF Olympus 14-150mm f4.0-5.6 II

+ $100 OFF Olympus 25mm f1.8 (Black)
+ $100 OFF Olympus 30mm f3.5 MACRO
+ if you buy all nine, your total combined purchase discount is $1600
Even though two of the above lenses are available in two different colors, for the purpose of this promotion, they count as separate lenses, they each get a discount.
What DOESN’T WORK
+ items NOT sold by Amazon itself
+ buying more than one camera body in the same shopping cart won’t give you additional discounts
+ buying multiple units of the same camera won’t give you additional discounts
+ buying multiple units of the same lens won’t give you additional discounts (but the silver and black colors of the eligible lenses count as separate lenses for the sake of this promotion, so you can get one of each color)
