Panasonic GH4 body only with freebies for $698

Remember the good old Panasonic GH4? It remembers you too with a $698 offer in new condition at authorized Panasonic dealers, and Adorama has various freebies, four different options of freebies in fact you can browse through at the aforelinked page. One of the options is the V-Log. The others are the usual assortment of accessories (memory cards, Marantz mic, Corel software, etc)… Same price but no freebies at Amazon and at B&H Photo… This too you can triple the original warranty by registering with Panasonica…

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).

Used Panasonic GH5 Body for $1079+ [NEW $1398 w/LOTS of Freebies]

SPOILERS: the options are Sigma, Rokinon, 7artisans, Kamlan prime lenses. Each lens’s discount is stackable, so if you buy all the participating lenses, your total combined purchase discount will be $410.

The cheapest combined purchase add-on lens is the 7artisans 25/1.8 for +$65, and the 7artisans 50/1.8 for +$74… The most expensive option is the Rokinon 24mm T1.5 Cine DS for a +$599…

Friday: Olympus E-M5 II with 25mm f1.8 lens for $899

Look at that! A second actual real camera offered as a daily deal this week! This time around it is at the Best Buy dailies, it is a bundle of a lens and camera, the new condition Olympus E-M5 II body only includes the Olympus M.Zuiko 25mm f1.8 lens for FREE, all together going for $899 with free shipping or free store pickup where possible.

The free lens is mentioned when you locate the tiny “Free item with purchase A $399.99 value” line in the ever-so-chaotic product pages… The E-M5 II on its own goes for $899 in new condition at authorized Olympus USA dealers… Best Buy alone has open-box options (for the E-M5 II body only; no free lens) starting at $540 (some of them may be local store pickup only)…

The sale price is good for the black or the silver color scheme. Not sure if the limit three is per color or total.

Of course there are many and more options in the world of M43rds these days, especially if you factor in used and refurbished and grey-market options in the mix ~ that’s a fun headache to have 🙂

If you pay with an Amazon store card or the Amazon Chase VISA credit card, you will get a 5% statement credit (depending on whatever promotion your card is on).

If you don’t have either of those cards, pay attention to the Amazon product page and the promotional mini-banners up top. They usually run either 0% financing promotions (usually for the store card) or $XX off for the Chase VISA card. I’m currently seeing a $60 off promotion on the Chase VISA card but the amount may vary depending on the time of the day you check, and who knows what other factors the Amazon AI Price Bots use to decide what to offer to who(m) and when…
