200 Euro price drop on the E-M5 in Germany. Still some time to go to see the new OMD.


I guess these are now the new official prices in Germany:
The body only is priced at 907 Euro at Technikdirekt (Click here).
The Body + 12-50mm lens is priced at 1,100 Euro at Technikdirekt (Click here).

And in France you can even get it cheaper(!) at Amazon France (Click here). All that doesn’t absolutely mean that there is a replacement coming soon. The E-m5 was announced 14 months ago and it’s normal to see some price drop now. You will have to wait til end 2013 to see the new OMD camera in Stock :)

    Now lets see if they’ll do anything with the UK price.
    Somehow I doubt it.

    In UK you have quite a nice promotion. FREE accessories worth up to 330 pounds (including a 45mm f1.8 lens) when purchasing an OMD. Offer valid until 31st of March.
    That’s pretty good deal to me ;)

    • er

      I wish they’d offer the 45mm with the camera in the US, or even better the new 17mm. Would much rather have a decent prime than a mediocre zoom.

    I purchased my OM-D at the focus show £1,000 Body, 12-50mm, Grip and spare Battery with an 8Gb card at a throw away price.

    I bought my OM-D nearly one year ago. Never had a camera before that
    has the same price for one whole year. So glad that I was an early adopter this time.

    I bought my second E-M5 for 809 euros body only at simplyelectronic on price minister !

    I purchased my OM-D + 12-50 a few month ago via the refurbished offer from official olympus shop in Netherlands:
    OM-D EUR 879,-
    OM-D + 12-50 EUR 1039,-
    The offer is still valid:

  • David

    There are about four shops now that offer it for that price: TechnikDirekt, Vienna Camera, Foto Erhardt and…. even Saturn. That means Amazon has to follow soon and perhaps some shops will even sell it cheaper.
    But in fact the french Amazon offer is great :)

  • Floyd

    Are you Europeans able to get stuff from Hong Kong easily??

    Here in Aus I am about to order the OMD + 12-50 for about $1150 AUD….(938 euro according to….)

    • Anonymous

      UK buyers will have to add 20% import duty to anything purchased outside Europe.

    • Don’t forget if the total is over $A1000 you’ll have to pay 10% GST on the lot.
      Better to have it shipped in two packages a few days apart, if they’ll do it.

    • You can get it in Australia from DigiDirect (Sydney & Melbourne) for $A1160, with Australian warranty.

  • kiki

    i was in philippines 2 monthes ago and there are some OMD + 12-50 for 810€

  • Ivar

    Here in Holland there is still the cashback or adapter deal until april 30th.
    So it’s € 899,- but after cashback € 799,- body only,if I understand correctly.
    I might just buy one, if they are in stock again.

  • A lot of stuff is very expensive in Australia … not Olympus gear though …

    892 AUD = 727 EUR

  • dweller

    OK fair enough, UK has a good price with the free 45mm lens or grip,
    but you still have to stump up a relatively high price if you just wanted a body.
    I’m waiting for the new body only price to drop so that the 2nd hand prices drop accordingly. This doesn’t happen with cashback or free gift deals.
    Yes I am tightfisted and patient :-)

    Although some complain of high prices on Olympus gear, they have rewarded early adopters of lenses and OM-D bodies by maintaining the price. This is in sharp contrast to the pricess of many of Nikon’s new products (i.e. D600, D800, V1 to name a few)

  • The only law at work if offer and demand. This site pointed 2 months ago to 850 EU in an Italian site.
    Then the rumour spread and it is back to 950 there.

    Now 900 in Germany is not bad but a UK site has it for 850. I am going to wait for another month trying to see how the E-P5 and the E-M5 coexist at the same price. It doesn’t make much sense, unless the former has an add on EVF in kit.
