All Olympus E-M10 III Kits In-Stock at Normal Prices

All four official Olympus kits for their new E-M10 III micro four thirds mirrorless camera are now in-stock at B&H Photo at their normal prices of $650 (body only) or $800 (with 14-42 EZ) in the silver or black color schemes.

On the other hand, if you prefer the previous generation models or their price-ranges, you might as well go manufacturer refurbished at the Olympus USA outlet store where the manufacturer refurbished E-M10 II body goes for $300, or with the 14-42mm EZ for $430. These come with a 90-day warranty from Olympus USA.

In-Stock Alert: Olympus E-M10 III Body for $650

The “smartphonization” of digital cameras (the addition of smartphone-like features, Wifi, touchscreens, NFC, companion apps, syncing, etc) has the added benefits to manufacturers of encouraging photographers to follow the upgrade cycles, similar to the smartphone upgrade cycles.

With that master of the obvious generalization out of the way, we have a new in-stock alert! The recently revealed [see New Cameras of 2017] Olympus E-M10 III body only is now in-stock and ready to ship for its starting price of $650 at Adorama in the black color scheme and the silver color scheme! Free expedited shipping is included!

If instead you prefer a previous generation model, getting reliable used (eg from places that test and stand behind their used products like KEH, B&H, Adorama) or manufacturer refurbished can save you money while lowering the risks of a eBay purchases from unreliable sellers.

Which brings us to the Olympus Outlet store currently offering the E-M10 II body only in manufacturer refurbished condition for $300 with a 90-day Olympus USA warranty, or with the 14-42mm EZ lens for $430.

Used Olympus E-M5 Body w/180-day warranty for $289 + S&H

Olympus M43rds Trade IN Promotion with Bonus Up to $300 [in addition to actual value of your used traded-in camera gear]

Olympus is running a trade-in promotion at B&H Photo and other dealers that give you a Trade-IN Bonus towards the purchase of select Olympus M43rds cameras and lenses.

Eligible cameras to purchase with this promotion are the E-M1 II, E-M5 II, PEN-F, and E-PL8. Nine Olympus M43rd Prime lenses are also eligible.

You will ALSO receive the trade-in value of the cameras you turn in for the trade-in promotion.

So, for example, if you are buying the Olympus E-M1 II body only through this promotion. The camera’s current price is $2000. If you participate in the trade-in promotion, you get a $300 off trade in-bonus discount. So you pay $1700 for the camera.

You will also receive the trade-in value of the camera you turn it. For example, if you trade-in an old beat-up DSLR, you may get a $100. If you trade-in a recent pristine DSLR, you may get a $500 value. The numbers I’m using here are strictly for example purposes, not based on current market prices!

When you click on the “Start your Trade-In” links over at the trade-in promotional page, you will see a list of eligible camera and lenses for this promotion.

Pre-order new Olympus E-M10 Mark III M43rds Mirrorless Camera

In a matter of three days, the Mirrorless Cameras managed to not only score an equalizer, but take the lead 9-8 over DSLR cameras among the New Cameras of 2017. The one who gave the mirrorless cameras the lead is the brand new Olympus E-M10 Mark III, or Third of Its Name, now available for pre-ordering in two configurations, body only or with lens and bag.

Each combo is available in either silver or black, but so far, there’s no Raiders edition yet. With the Raiders moving in Vegas, the opportunities for Raiders merchandising are at an all time high [speculation].

Used Olympus E-M5 II Body for $650

If you are not tempted by this week’s new condition Olympus instant savings [see Olympus posts], and you are comfortable with used cameras, the E-M5 II body only in the silver color is available in Used condition at B&H Photo starting at $650 in “Condition 8+”, and increasing for conditions 9 and 9+.

Olympus PEN-F with 25mm f1.8 AND 45mm f1.8 for $1297

The Olympus PEN-F with the 25mm f1.8 and 45mm f1.8 kits were going for $1898 last week, but as part of the new Olympus Instant Savings promotions, they have now jumbo-dropped down to $1297 with free shipping at B&H Photo in the silver color scheme and the black color scheme.

This is pretty, pretty, pretty good when you consider that the Pen-F body only goes for $1200. Also discounted are the kits with the 25mm f1.8 OR 45mm f1.8 for the same price of $1200. But for an extra $100, you get both prime lenses, which you can also sell/trade/gift/exchange/etc.

You can find them all on the PEN-F listing and then you can traverse the various colors and kit options!

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 🙂

(ENDED) 20% off select Olympus Lenses (including f2.8 PRO Zooms and 12/2 and 75/1.8) and the E-M5 II Body for $530 after coupon
