Hot deal reminder: E-PL1 for $398 and GF1 for $599 (no E-PL1s tomorrow)


The Panasonic GF1 with 20mm f/1.7 Lens is in Stock for $599 at Amazon (Click here). A month ago the price was close to the $800! I guess Amazon is clearing their stocks in favour for the GF2 (and maybe for the future GF3???).

As you have seen there have been huge price drops on the Olympus E-PL1. Last week a japanese website said that there could be an E-PL1s announcement on November 16th (tomorrow!). I didn’t hear anything from my sources that’s why I don’t believe it’s really coming (ops I was wrong…the E-PL1s has been announced!). Anyway tomorrow we will know it for sure!
Get the E-PL1 for $398 at Amazon and $399 at Adorama (yes one single dollar difference).
UPDATE: The Amazon Deal is gone.

    The Adorama E-PL1 is refurbished w/ 90 days warranty. And the Amazon appears and disappears.

  • Alexander

    Amazon has the E-PL1 listed for $499.

  • Admin>you mention GF3? isnt it due 2012?

    Admin. Let me know about good deals in the EU.

    US market doesn’t work for me.

    You know, it’s us europeans that bleed the most when buying tech goods. Lucky yanks have allways their B&H.

      • Zaph

        Not really, if the sources are European. This is a Japan only product right now.

    If the amazon e-pl1 deal comes back, don’t forget to grab the 40-150mm with mmf-2. At checkout there’s a $100 discount, dropping that lens bundle to $103.14.

    The E-PL1 is $449 right now on amazon.
