OM System reminder: March sale on OM-1 and OM-5 ending

OM System sent out this email today:

ON OM-1 & OM-5

There’s still time to get our lowest prices on our newest OM SYSTEM cameras. Save $300 on the OM-1 or save $200 on the OM-5. Upgrade now and be ready to capture spring travels, birds, macros and wildlife.

Hurry, offers end Saturday, March 25.

OM System offers sales regularly, but the amount of the discounts varies. Not every sale is equal. $300 off of the OM-1 is a decent savings. This is a manufacturer’s discount, so retailers like B&H and Adorama are passing it on.

Want to patronize your local camera store? Here’s a list of Authorized Dealers.

Down here in Oz they are doing it as a $200 (AUD) pre-paid Visa card offer with an OM-5. I’ve had a bad experience with a cash-back offer from Olympus in the past so I’ll pass, on this one. There’ll be better deals coming.

I just got an OM-5 for C$230 off (including tax saving). Pretty good on a brand new camera.
