Lowest price record: $889 for the Black E-M5.



The price for the E-M5 body only is now as low as it has never been before via third party resellers at Amazon (Click here). That’s even cheaper than the price you pay for refurbished E-M5 on eBay. The seller has a good feedback history so it’s a real deal.

More US deals reminder:
E-PM1 with kit lens from $399 down to $299 at Adorama, Amazon and at BHphoto.
E-PL3 with kit lens now $399 at Adorama, Amazon and at BHphoto.
E-P3 with kit lens for $449 at Adorama and Amazon.

    Will Germany ever get such a nice deal, too? Still the same price as on releasedate.

    • Dick

      Some dealers in Germany at least offer a special bundle with a highspeed 16 GB SDHC card and an original Olympus spare battery. You just have to look closer at the pages 2 or 3 of the price comparison sites.

        Which price comparison sites? I’ve looked on heise Preisvergleich (I think they get their data from geizhals) and e.g. the GH3 starts from 1149 €. A shop in my neighbour town sells it for 1099 €. Ordered a GH3A there for 1998 €, is the price okay? I’ve been watching ebay offers for weeks, turns out buying used ones there only saves about 100 €.

        • Dick

          Try e.g. Idealo. The kit with the 12-50mm lens sells always for €1299 but some dealers do include a special bundle. Personally I like the lens a lot – especially since it is waterproof and has very nice macro capabilities. And it is one of very few that is reliable in video mode.

          • taurus

            Thanks. Did a quick check and the GH3A bundle is listed there from 2069 €. I’m totally baffled that these Internet shops are so expensive while the shop in town sells it for 71 € less. Beats me. Since when are local shops cheaper than Internet shops??

        But 900$ are about 680€. And even if you have to ad taxes in the USA the difference is about 400€. Prices in France and italy are much better as well. In England there was this “Free optional Grip” offer….

    Is there some kind of promo code needed for the LX7 deal?

    Clicking the links provided shows $348 across the board.

    • admin

      Sorry deal just ended. And I removed the links. You missed it :(

  • mjp

    …on its way to $499 by years end!

      I’ll pick one up when it’s free. It’ll be good value then.

  • jimbo

    hardly a deal.. I would consider buying one for $599..might take another year and clearance when the new camera replaces it.

  • Seems like this camera is still selling well. As long as they produce to sales figures there won’t be many left around when the replacement comes out. Good for oly but means few sellout discounts for the old and no kick start discounts off the new one for us.

    • high ,olmg

      yes right lol, the e-m5 can’t even make the top 100 selling digital cameras I wouldn’t be too confident about its sales numbers .Looking on the bright side according to a few geniuses who post here hi youdidntdidyou lol somehow Olympus doubling their losses from nine billion yen last year to 18billion this year is good news . If mFT is so hot how come panasonic and Olympus camera departments are losing so much money .


      • YIKES

        WOW… A Olympus point and shoot shows it’s ugly head at #64… That’s the top selling Olympus camera ON THE LIST!! Panasonic G5 (MFT) is in the top 50 at #49, their first camera, a point and shoot shows up at #16..
        Olympus has 4 cameras total out of the 100, and 3 of them are the same camera, in different colors..

        No wonder the Olympus Defense Force are so defensive…

        • Lists, lists, lists, some people can’t live without lists, can you? News for you. Not everyone uses Amazon. So that stuffs that list. but as a prime lister you no doubt have many more lists in your mindless collection. Go and take some photos and forget the lists.

          Good guide to the sales of a product is its price. Lists are nothing but lists.

  • true homer

    see? this is what I mean. If a panasonic camera drops even a dollar theres 178 comments about panasonic going broke. Even if the camera is over a year and a half old. The em5 has barely 8 months and its already dropping and its because “theyre doing so good”.
