Olympus US cash back action: Get money for your old camera to buy a new Olympus!

Olympus US just launched a new Cash Back action. And this time it is a particularly interesting offer! You can trade in your “old” camera (from every brand) and you will get cash to buy an Olympus camera.

But now the funniest part: They also created a Digital Camera Value Estimator that calculates the value of your camera!

I would never trade in my Olympus E-P1 but I still own an old Pentax K10D. I used the estimator and Olympus US would give me $178.00 for it! To bad that I am located in Europe :(
Anyway, you would probably get more for your camera if you sell it on eBay

I guess it’s a good moment to shop for the Olympus E-PL1 ($519 on amazon) or the Olympus E-P2!

UPDATE: GF1 deal gone (price drops also in Japan but not in Europe?)

The superdeal on Amazon (Panasonic GF1 with 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Lens for $649.99) and BHphoto (same price) is GONE!

One of our readers also sent us an info where he says that also in Japan the price dropped to 48,500 yen (about $570 USD). Plz send me the link to the store ;)

I didn’t find any big price drop in Europe :(

UPDATE: A very good deal in Holland. 599 Euro for the GF1 with 14-45mm lens at Fotoquelle.nl
