    Checking what’s posted on this page, I first thought I came to Amazon.

    Are u sure this is still 4/3 rumors page?

    • admin

      It’s the biggest Olympus deal action of the year. Should we ignore it? Besides that you can use the category filter to avoid reading deals post :)

      • Bob B.

        Admin…it is also nice to see that B&H has upped-the-anty and now has 4% cash-back like Amazon.

    • @Observer…..keep it real. We get the benefit of all Admin’s efforts for free. I don’t mind the info on sales etc, it reminds me how I get ripped off at home!
      I am really grateful to the admin for saving me thousands of dollars over the last 4 years. I used info from this site to avoid buying the E-P1, in the knowledge that the E-PL1 would have an accessory evf. Since then, I have been nearly ready to squeeze the trigger on a new body a few times…..only to have a new rumour persuade me to wait. In the meantime, I’ve taken a lot of good images on a camera I know well.
      Now, I know we will finally have dual AF soon. My upgrade will likely bring me:
      -dual AF
      -weatherproofing
      -hi-res evf
      -5-axis IBIS, even in movie mode with legacy lenses
      -higher res images
      -higher ISO range
      -better DR
      -focus peaking

      All this is just a bonus to me though. I knew I should hold off until I could buy a body that would be optimal with fast, long, native glass. I bet we’ll see that glass within 18 months, and none of the first generation CDAF-only m43 bodies will focus those lenses as well as the new ones. What’s gonna happen to second hand prices then?

      • Paul Latouche

        Most people won’t care for a m4/3 camera that can focus PDAF 4/3 lens, simply because they don’t own such lenses and don’t plan to buy them. So what will happen to second hand prices? Hardly anything worth mentioning.

        • Paul, you may have missed my point. It’s not the legacy 4/3 glass that matters. The chief complaint of the m43 format has been that it isn’t useful for “action” photography, due to the dithering nature of CDAF requiring a relatively still target. So who would have stumped up the $2000 or so that high grade fast, long glass usually costs, if it can’t focus on birds in flights or racing cars?
          Dual AF will mean that Olly and Panny can now produce those lenses for m43, and hopefully have them perform at least as well as the 4/3 system did.
          Sure, the 4/3 crowd will be happy too, which isn’t a bad thing. But consider this: if a Pro OMD can manage birds in flight as well as a good DSLR, why would you buy the DSLR?

          • Paul Latouche

            Ok I missed your point. Sorry about that.
            Still, I don’t think AF would work as good as on a DSLR on the first try, with PDAF on sensor (we’re talking about PDAF on sensor, right?). In 5-10 years, I believe we could be there.
            So, “if a Pro OMD can manage birds in flight as well as a good DSLR, why would you buy the DSLR?”
            I guess at that point it would be because of the relatively cheaper price of APS-C DSLR vs m4/3. Then, some people might still prefer OVF.
            OTOH, there is already a bunch of people buying DSLR over mirrorless, and that is not for birds in flight or any other technical limitation. Cost and product visibility are the main issues.
            Let’s say, normal consumer buys a kit for travel and kids pictures:
            Canon T5i + 18-55mm kit zoom (900$ at BH USA) + 50mm f1.8 (110$) for a total of 1010$
            Or Nikon D5200 + 18-55mm kit zoom (800$) + AF-S 50mm f1.8 (217$) for a total of 1017$
            Or Panasonic G6 + 14-42mm II (750$) + 45mm f1.8 (400$) for a total of 1150$
            Or OMD-EM5 + 14-42mm kit zoom (1025$) + 45mm f1.8 (400$) for a total of 1425$

            Conclusion: m43 is no bargain, at this point

    • … the links help keep this excellent rumours website open :)

      just go ahead and buy something!

      we just need some UK deals now :(

    • John

      Agree with observer…if you want to make this a commercial site, then create a separate section, the site is now cluttered with ads and offers

    • Observer

      Hah! Didn’t know that someone would eventually hijack/use my nick. Try using an original nick and stop using others’ nick to make tired old comments.

      • observer

        Sorry – my fault. New here, made up my nick today, and didn’t know about your existence.
        But to be precise, I signed “observer”, and not “Observer”. Yes, on Win machines this is pretty much the same, but on UNIX systems (that’s what real men use) there is a difference betwen “o” and “O”.

  • Phred

    I have to say that my OMD has held it’s value longer than any digital camera I have owned!

    • good call – I think the only camera that has held its value better than the various PEN models I’ve had is the Nikon D700 (which actually went up in price!). Even the D7000 had a hard time pricewise on re-sale when I finally quit Nikon.

      But I’m stiiiiiiill not gonna buy the EP5 at its LAUNCH price

      • Pared

        (My 5D Mark II Did ok too!). I own a GX1 w/LVF2, which I bought the day they were released, about 1-1/2 years ago for $600 or $700, (can’t remember),) but I might as well just keep that, as there is virtually no resale value on that! LOL. I think right now I would get more $ for the LVF2. I use it as my back-up MFT body to my OMD. Its still a very decent camera. I would like to replace it with an EPL5 or EP5 w/VF4..but at these current prices I think that I will just sit tight and see what the new GX7 and the OMD successors have to offer before I buy another body. I think a lot of people will skip the EP5 w/VF2 right now at these prices for the same reason. Can’t wait to see the ne offerings from Oly & Panny!

    • caver3d

      The other camera that has held its own and, in fact, has gone back up in price (used) is the GH2. Check it out at ebay and you’ll see. Remember it has outstanding video, takes very good stills, and has the rare multi-aspect 16 mp sensor. And as long as the GH3 is overpriced, the GH2 will continue to be sought after. We can also thank the cinematographers for keeping the price high by continuously scooping up used GH2s.

      • Anonymous

        Agree about the GH2 value. I bought a second one last December (new for $500 at BH) knowing that I wouldn’t use it much – it was just second body insurance. I also bought a second OM-D for “insurance” reasons. However, with the GH2 purchase, I suspected that the value would actually go up because of the (only) evolutionary improvements with the GH3, plus its larger size.

        I check ebay regularly, and have been pleased to see the increase in prices for used GH2, although I plan on keeping both of mine until I find a Blackmagic compact!

        • true homer

          The gh2 held 95% of its original price right up to the announcement of the gh3

  • Yun

    Yes , too much deals recently .
    Good for who hunt for cameras but not so good for people waiting to see new specs of incoming cameras .
    As you can see , discounts on Oly products are all quite reasonable unlike Pana always on crazy / madness prices sale . Pana should look into this otherwise it will keep lose it’s customers .
    Look at Sony , although it cycle it’s models faster than other manufacturers but the prices on it’s old products remain solid or in an acceptable price range .

    • I like seeing the deals even though I’m only interested in two or three of the new cameras (er, okay that is all if them) … its interesting to see the price drops on old stuff

    • Sqweezy

      If you don’t like the deals, you don’t have to read them.

  • Hamish

    The HDL-6 is listed on the Olympus Canada site for $224.99 REGULAR price, not a sale price.

    These deals are a joke- can’t imagine they will generate many sells. The recent Fuji sales- now those are a deal. Maybe with Sony owning part of the company Olympus has decided to go the Sony route when it comes to sales, ie, make them as unimpressive as possible.

  • Anonymous

    i wish B&H also give discount on the new 1.8/75mm BLACK EDITION, not just the Silver

  • tomas

    all those em5,epl5 & epm2 deals makes the ep5 even less price competitive than before…like they say to customer…hey wait we will decrease soon also ep5…what oly expect?

  • Anonymous

    60mm macro is now getting first discount since it was released. $400 is a good price for such an excellent lens.. too bad I already own it.

    • I second that the 60mm macro is a great deal right now. 20% off on a super sharp and small piece of glass. If that’s not a deal, I don’t know what is.

      Stop complaining about the site – if you don’t like the deals posts, ignore them. Some people do come to the site to find deals, and if you were running the site, you would want to make some money on it too. Time = money, the admin is doing a public service for us all.

  • adaptor-or-die

    Ok a new post showing price drops, rather good ones by the discounts posted? So, what negative comments could people possibly post about the price of mFT gear coming down?

    Sure enough, the flavour of this thread is people whinging and moaning … I suspect that if you mailed everyone a free camera, postage-paid, they’d complain …

    “I didn’t want this colour!”
    “Why didn’t it come with a zoom?”
    “Stop spamming me with these free cameras!”
    “I just don’t understand, this forum is free, I pay nothing to use it, I can filter it’s content to fit my needs and somehow I find that you’re still posting information that I didn’t want to see, what’s the deal with that?!!!????!!!”

      LOL, that was very well put!

  • RichA

    Re; the ephotozine review. How does a camera with image quality not as good as the OM-D or NEX manage a 5/5? Did the OM or the NEX get a 6/5?

  • hello!,I really like your writing very much! percentage we keep up a correspondence more approximately your article on AOL? I need a specialist in this area to resolve my problem. May be that’s you! Having a look forward to see you.
