Olympus corrects the price on ref E-M5….


As you know yesterday Olympus posted some impressive deals on refurbished E-M5 cameras on their getolympus website. Short time after I posted this on 43rumors theyput their website offline. Now it’s back and prices have been raised. Wondering what happened to those of you that preordered the camera for the crazy low price. Got some feedback from Oly?

Some other US deals:
Panasonic 12-35mm X lens for 1,039 dollars via Panacam on Amazon (Click here).
GF5 with lens for $339 at Newegg (Click here).
Most sold MFT camera is again the E-PL1 (Ranking here).

Tremendous refurbished E-M5 US deals!

Got a couple of emails from 43rumors readers about a “tremendous” deal ongoing on refurbished Olympus cameras at You can get the E-M5 for $699 or the 12-50mm kit version for $753. Comes with a 30 day money back/90 day warranty from Olympus. That’s $130 than what you pay for refurbished cameras at Cametaauctions. Europeans can buy refurbished E-M5 (but likely more expensive) on eBay (via Slidoo). And there is a Gold Box deal on the E-M5 at Amazon UK.
UPDATE: Olympus just removed the deal. So di they actually do a mistake?

And there is also a new Gold Box deal on the GF5 kit at Amazon (Click here).

P.S.: Also posted at mu-43.

GX1 X kit Gold box deal. E-M5 Firmware update no big deal :(

There is a Gold Box deal on the Silver GX1 and 14-42mm X kit at Amazon (Click here).

And that’s the only big deal we had today as the December 14ht date for the E-m5 firmware release was wrong (P.S: it was a FT2 rumor from two unknown sources). So you see why you don’t see so many FT2 rumors on that website :(
UPDATE: 43rumros reader Samuel shared an email he got form Olympus saying that “we are not thinking of updating the firmware for OM-D E-M5 at present.”

Back to the GX1, there is also a new Camera Cover from Gariz (Click here to check out the three different versions for sale).
