200 Euro price drop on the E-M5 in Germany too.



43rumors reader Erwin just sent me that image and wrote: “I got this Lufthansa Miles&More WorldShop catalogue about 2 weeks ago, showing the OM-D for 1.099 €“. Yesterday we got notified that there is a similar deal in Holland (here is the pdf flyer).

I still don’t see that price drop in German Stores like Amazon Germany. Let me know if you find them in Germany and in the rest of Europe! Thanks!

UPDATE: Jarrkko sent me that message: “OM-DE with kit lens sells in Finland for 1 099,00€ (incl. VAT 24 %).  See more at: https://www.topshot.fi/category/491/olympus-om-d

UPDATE_2: In UK price drop too at SimplyElectronics.

Back in Stock after two years. The GF1 :)



43rumors reader Jonas just made me notice that the GF1 is back im stock after a couple of years :) You can find it with the 14-42mm kit lens for a crazy $1099 at Amazon (Click here). That camera made history and I am sure some will buy it at that price! And of course it also became famous couple with the 20mm lens that is still the most sold mirrorless product at Amazon (Click here to see the ranking).

Yep, history never forgets what did matter :)

Guthrie & Olivia:My partner and I are doing a multi-month bicycle trip through the American Southwest, and I brought my Panasonic GH3  & 12-35 along to document, and do videography. The link is to our blog post, and (short, 4 minute) video. http://wp.me/p36V55-Ep. The video was shot and edited entirely with the equipment we carry by bicycle! Here’s the link to just the video too, if you only feel like posting that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwwSpSuWD2U
