Olympus E-M5 body only for $600

When we posted the Mirrorless Price Chart at the end of 2014, the price of the Olympus E-M5 body only was $1000. Fast forward to now (*gasp* it’s 2.5 months later, where did all the time go? *gasp*) and the E-M5 body only is down to $600 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 2 per color) and B&H Photo (with 4% reward = $24) and Adorama (with 4% reward = $24) and Best Buy upon eBay and Nuevo Huevo.

One of the reasons the E-M5 is down to $600 is because the new E-M5 II has been revealed with an early-adopter price of $1100 (pre-orders at Amazon et al).
