“E-M5 sensor” + lens for $429.


I know you are all focused on the new E-P5 launch but there is a camera that uses exactly the same sensor form the E-M5 and E-P5 and sells for $429 with lens(!). It’s the Olympus E-PM2 at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here). If you click on these links you will also notice that the kit version is actually cheaper than the body only! That’s the best quality-price rate you can get right now on a Micro Four Thirds camera. Sorry dear European colluegues, we still have to pay a bit less than 500 Euro to grab it (prices here on Slidoo eBay).

If you don’t care about getting the latest sensor generation than you may check out the E-P3 with kit lens thats ells for $379 at Amazon (Click here).

    WOW…I guess that is a lot of camera for that much money….You can probably fix the grip with a black laundry marker.. :-)

    E-PL5 with kit lens is also at the same price as body-only.

    Thanks for the tip! I was about to rent another OMD as a telephoto camera for a wedding I’m shooting in a couple weeks, and I did this instead. I’ve wanted a capable back-up/bike-bag cam for a long time. Plus, a new lens for my wife’s old PEN. Win-win!

    Well there is more to a camera then it’s sensor. That said, Australians have had their E-PM2 at around the same price for the last few weeks $447. Too bad the E-PL5 is such a stupid price in only twin lens kits.

  • E-PM2 is already around 450 euros in Europe, taxes included, so the price is not that bad around here.
