(ENDED) YI M1 with 12-40 M43rds Camera for $239 [ends by 10:25am ET]

This early morning lightning deal expired…

Ending by 10:25am ET in the Amazon Gold Box is the YI Technology M43rds sale that was promised and it’s pretty good for the YI M1 with 12-40mm going for $239~ with free shipping in the aforelinked black or silver color schemes. Limit one per color per customer. This was going for $300 before the sale, and $350 before Prime Day week. So it’s a pretty good discount… PS: there is also the two lens kit for $303~, so decisions-decisions.

YI M1 w/12-40mm for $299 or add 45mm f1.8 for $379 total [M43]

YI is taking Prime Day seriously with actual discounts, unlike many of the MAP-obsessed more famous iLC camera manufacturers. Their YI M1 with 12-40mm Micro Four Thirds camera is now on sale for $299 instead of its regular price of $350 in the silver or black color schemes by YI with the orders fulfilled by Amazon, so they are Prime eligible.

Their two other kits are also discounted (two lens kit, or with 42.5mm f1.8 instead of 12-40). The best bang for the buck is the YI M1 with 12-40mm and 45mm f1.8 for $379, so essentially $80 more gets you the 45mm f1.8 lens added to your bundle.

+ these are open to everyone, they are not restricted to Prime members!

As of the time of writing the camera is in-stock for its starting price of $2000 at Adorama and by a trio of recognizable eBay sellers, Samy’s Camera (eBay) (Southern California) and Kenmore Camera (eBay) (Washington, the Apple state) and Pixel Connection (eBay) (Ohio).

Meanwhile the estimate at B&H Photo is May 16, 2017, so if you are a B&H fan or have gift cards or rewards or store credit, that’s an option too. Keep in mind the “May 16” is an estimate and can change at any time as the estimates depend on various factors.

On the other hand, if you are a fan of buying used, you can get it for $1848~ in “Used – Like New” condition by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. The listing says damaged original packaging, no cosmetic imperfections, and it has been tested and fully functional (not sure by who, and not sure how much the AWD camera testers know about customers). Amazon offers a 30-day return policy but makes no promise of a manufacturer warranty.
