EU deals: Already first price drop on the PRO 12-40mm lens.

Share

There are a couple of new EU deals to report and at least one of them is a quite surprising deal. The still to be shipped Olympus 12-40mm PRO lens got a 142 Euro price drop in Spain (Click here). I don’t know if you can order the lens from outside Spain. If the answer is yeas this is really a great deal.

Another great deal is the 150 Euro off on the E-M5 with 12-50mm kit at Fotomundus (via DL) and the 80 Euro off on the 60mm macro again at Fotomundus (via DL).

HOT UPDATE: Forgot to mention two gold Box deals running otday in UK! On the Panasonic GX1 (Click here) and on the Olympus XZ-10 (Click here).

Whatdigitalcamera (Click here) used quite some nice words for the E-M1:

The E-M1 will no doubt appeal to existing PEN and E-series shooters, but we can see the charms of it attracting attention from DSLR owners too, especially travel and reportage photographers looking for a high-quality, responsive and well-made camera to go anywhere with them. Put simply, the E-M1 is not just one of the best system cameras around at the moment, but one of the best cameras full stop.

And also Steve Huff (Click here) likes the camera:

I can say that for me, the Olympus E-M1 is the best Mirrorless camera on the market today when looking at the “Whole Picture” of cost, size, build, speed, toughness, EVF, performance, features and lenses available. No one else even comes close and I should know, I have used EVERYTHING out there. Well done Olympus, you have indeed created a mirrorless masterpiece!

P.S.: A special thanks to Olympus for recognizing that people buying the E-M1 with 12-40mm lens should get rewarded with a lower kit price. Not many companies do that!
