However, if you keep your ear to the ground like we do, you come about the best photography deals currently on the market, and within our Deal Dashes, we share them with you:

For whatever reason, we typically don’t see a lot of Olympus deals of note, so it’s kind of a big deal when they come around. Olympus has always been a producer of great cameras, and if you ask any objective person who has used an OM-D E-M1 what they think of it, you’ll likely hear nothing but praise, and even the ‘OMD for everyone’ (the OM-D E-M10) is always highly regarded. Luckily for us they’re both at incredible price points. The OM-D E-M1 is currently $200 off dropping the price of the Olympus mirrorless flagship down to $899 from $1,099, and the OM-D E-M10 is going for $399 or paired with 2 lenses for $799. Furthermore, there are a number of lens deals that range from $100-$200 off. Check them out:

Nikon has been having some of the best deals ever in the past few months, only to cut them short, bring new ones, and then take them away soon thereafter. Moral of the story has been, to pounce on the offerings when they come.  Right now there are significant savings to be had on some of their best bodies, and bundles which present even bigger ones; you’re looking at anywhere from $300 to $900 off.
