Some Solid ($200+) Olympus Lens Savings (Deal Dash)

By Anthony Thurston on February 4th 2016

Welcome to our Deal Dash segment, where we scour the web for the best deals on camera, lenses, lighting, and other gear for photographers. There are always great deals to be found over on B&H and Amazon, so make sure to check out those two websites.

Today, we wanted to highlight three deals below:

Olympus M.ZUIKO 17mm f/1.8

olympus-17mm

This lens is an all-metal 17mm prime lens designed for the Olympus line of Micro Four Thirds cameras such as the E-PM2, E-PL5 and E-P5 digital cameras. Its focal length is equivalent to 34mm in the 35mm format, and its minimum focusing distance is 9.8″ (25 cm). It is a very bright, fast lens ideal for everyday photography as well as street photography in which fast shutter speeds and sufficient light is important. Of course, with a wide maximum aperture of f/1.8, this is a fine lens for low-light situations and shallow depth of field imaging.

This 17mm Olympus prime also happens to be on sale right now for a cool $100 off, bringing your final sale price to $399. If you are interested, you can grab the deal over on B&H here.

Olympus M.Zuiko ED 14-150mm f/4-5.6 II

olympus-14-150

This Olympus 14-150mm is a wide to telephoto zoom with a 28-300mm 35mm equivalent, allowing you to shoot in a wide variety of situations. This lens improves upon the previous version by adding dust and splash-proof housing and ZERO (Zuiko Extra-Low Reflective Optical) coating.

It also happens to be on sale right now for $200 off, bringing your final purchase price down to $399. If you are interested in this deal, you can grab it over on B&H here.

This 75mm F/1.8 a beautiful, high-quality medium length telephoto lens (equivalent to 150mm in 35mm or full-frame format) for Micro Four Thirds format cameras.

    Nice deal. I own the 17mm f/1.8, and will probably own the 75mm sooner or later.

    Oooh, that 75mm f1.8 looks nice. I bet its gorgeous, back in the day my climbing partner shot Olympus and his lenses were all pretty sweet.

      I shoot the Olympus system and the 75mm 1.8 is the sharpest lens I have ever used!! Optics are great, but not weather sealed.
