Olympus OM-D EM-1 Mirrorless Camera 1-Day Flash Sale (Deal Dash)

By SLR Lounge Official on August 15th 2016

In our field, gear matters, and you’d have to have a bank balance bigger than your bank account number for you to acquire all you likely would want when the whim takes you. 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:

OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1 One Day Flash Sale

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, and today (and for today only) there  is one of the best deals around. If you buy before midnight tonight the OM-D E-M1, Olympus’ flagship mirrorless is on sale for $799 down from $1,099.

Olympus has always been a producer of great cameras, great glass, 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. The camera has been nicely upgraded through firmware throughout its life, and has become a ‘thinking-man’s’ mirrorless. This is the best price we’ve seen yet, and paired with the fact Olympus just dropped prices on a number of lenses, about the best time to buy. Remember, this is a 1-day deal, so get it here:

Other Current Limited-Time Sales Of Note

FUJIFILM LIMITED TIME SALE & FREE BATTERY GRIP

Fujifilm-Xt2-X-t2-fuji-mirrorless-4k-3

For whatever reason, Fujifilm cameras don’t frequently go on sale. Maybe they don’t have to considering they sell like sex. However, starting today, the company has issued a slew of rebates on Fuji gear, much to everyone’s delight, and the savings are up to $350, and on top of that the X-T1 body now comes with a free battery grip.

Other items on sale are a wide array of Fuji lenses like the much-loved 56mm f/1.2 and ADP variant, the 90mm f/2, and lots more. Also on that list is the X100T, XT10, and bundles. Click HERE to see a list of what’s on offer, and check this article if you’re looking for what we think are some of the best lenses for Fuji systems.

    Good deals, both are excellent cameras. Guess these offers are to help move older stock.

      Not having played with the E-M1 myself, I feel I’m missing out. It’s just so unusual a camera like that gets the kind of praise it does from people I know to be discerning.

      I tested both and really liked them. The Fuji line is excellent and I was very tempted, but ended up getting the Olympus E-M10 Mark II. This was purely because I wanted something of decent quality that was completely different to my DSLR’s, and that would not break the bank. I was a little unsure of mirrorless, initial thoughts was to use for personal projects and family stuff, but already have used wedding images taken with the E-M10 for clients.
      Amongst 500+ wedding photos, difficult to see any differences between DSLR and mirrorless images. The kit lens with the Olympus is soft at the edges, but I got the 17mm f1.8 lens as an add on, this one is very good.

      I really must get on to try, or buy. I am so jaded in a sense that the thought of going MFT makes me uneasy, but you speak of it the way everyone I know does. And the Olympus cameras always have high IQ… soon, hopefully.
