US deals roundup (E-PL1, GH1 and Olympus 35-100mm and red GF1 body for $435)


While the new Panasonic GH2 is now in Stock at J&R (CLick here) and Adorama (CLick here) you might want to take a look at the GH1 body alone which is in Stock for $399 at Amazon (Click here).

UPDATE_2: Sorry I had the wrong link!!!!!! It’s fixed now:
If you still prefer the GF1 instead of the GF2 than you should take a look on that auction. Gadgetclick is selling more than 10 RED GF1 body only cameras for $435 on eBay (Click here).

There is a $100 Instant Rebate on the Olympus E-PL1 with 14-150mm Lens for $799.95 at BHphoto (CLick here).

    Those Adorama prices aren’t deals at all!
    G1 body only is now $400.
    20mm lens alone: $400. Adorama price for both: $800. Same!
    14mm lens alone: $400 at Adorama, from $348 at Amazon. Adorama price for both: $800. Same or higher than separately.
    7-14mm: $1000. Adorama price for both: $1500. $100 higher!
    45mm alone: $750 elsewhere, $800 at Adorama. Price for both: $1300. $100 more!!

    C’mon, that’s just insulting!

    Jon I rechecked and you are completey correct! That’s a joke of a deal on Adorama. I removed it. I posted it becuase I thought you had to take off $100 from the price written in RED. But As you mentioned the price in RED is already discounted. Damn.

  • I will sell my 35-100mm f2 for $1600
    Great condition, filtered from day 1, used on E3 for little over 2 years, Florida only, for now.

      Sorry Admin and others for the transaction on your discussion.

    • yea I didn’t really think about it, but that was kinda rude of me.

    any additional news about the wide angle lens roadmap for the next year or two? when do you think the 12mm prime or the 12-50 will come? the 9-18 or 7-14 photo quality seems to be excellent but the cost is eye popping. im so salty im considering just getting an lx5 instead of the lens…

    anyone with a gf1 and the 9-18mm miss having OIS?

    • Michael Meissner

      In terms of missing OIS with the 9-18mm, using the usual formula where you tend to need stabilization to overcome camera shake if the shutter speed is slower than the reciprocal of the 35mm equivalent focal length, or 1/18 for shooting at 9mm, and 1/36 for shooting at 18mm.

      Generally, I would imagine that you would want to shoot moving humans at a faster shutter speed, so it wouldn’t be an issue for shots with people in it. If you shoot waterfalls at slow speed yeah you might want speeds that low, but with scenic type shots the subject doesn’t move that much and you can arrange to stabilize the camera. So while you might occasionally want stabilization for a wide angle lens, I suspect you need it much more often for a telephoto lens where you might want to shoot at 1/60 or 1/125 instead of 1/300 (for the 40-150mm or 14-150mm) or 1/400 (for the 45-200mm).

  • I bit the bullet and got the 35-100mm when I saw the price (before I saw it here!) I have yet to use it for anything real, but soon, soon…

  • Neonart

    Same here. 35-100 on a truck headed in my dirrection. That’s $700 off list with a 3mo warr. Not bad.
