£500 off this Olympus E‑M1 Mark II 12-200mm kit is a massive saving on this amazing camera.

More for serious photographers than beginners, this camera is highly rated in many photography magazines and sites, and has all the expected features of a mirrorless camera of its calibre.

Here is one review: dpreview.com/rev…-ii

The Mark III has since been released and is probably why Olympus is offering £500 off.



"The E-M1 Mark II is like no other OM-D before it. A powerhouse of technology delivers the photography experience that every professional craves: An advanced AF system with high-speed sequential shooting - Continuous Auto Focus (C-AF) of up to 18fps and Single Auto Focus (S-AF) of up to 60fps - and innovative Pro Capture for lag-free shooting. A lightweight, weatherproof build and high-stamina battery. A 20M Live MOS sensor and TruePic VIII processor for achieving new heights in image quality. There’s nothing more to be desired."

Seems like a good deal. The lens alone is over £500.

The body is £999.
I've been pondering a weather sealed upgrade to me M10 MkII for a while... This or the M5 MkIII are very tempting. Still torn between whether I prefer the smaller form of the M5. Hmmm...

Great deal anyway!

I have the M5-2. It's a good size and the optional grips comes in two parts to bulk it up for portraiture.

I'd like the M1-2 but to be honest, it's taking away from the small form factor. Some cracking feature sets though!

This is a really good deal, but imagine it won't be massively popular due to the uncertainty of Olympus ecosystem products with the sale of the camera business etc.

I'd love this lens for a walk around, but 200mm/400mm equivalent is going to need 1/800 shutter (give or take with IBIS and ISO) and handheld is going to limit its usefulness for me personally

I'm with you on the limitations of this setup - I'd love the features of an EM1 but the size takes me back to where I was with my Canon setup and if I was going to a larger combo, I'd move away from MFT. If size isn't a concern then it's a great piece of kit. I'm not too fussed about superzooms like this one and would have looked to sell it, though you can run into warranty issues when it comes to sending bodies back without their bundled lens - from what I experienced with my Pany gear.

You certainly can't have everything but I guess I'll have to make do with what I've got and improve my technique rather than wishing my life away

I use the 40-150mm lens on my aging PM1 handheld with no problems - it's a lighter lens and obviously doesn't reach quite as far, but I'd expect the improved grip that the EM-range cameras offer would mean this is still very useable at full zoom.

Oh it's useable for sure, but you'll need specific conditions - great light. Reviews allude to the same by handheld. Dimming light will bump ISO rapidly here.

The 40-150 you have is great for the money (I had one) but is very very light and makes it easier to use. With 5 axis IBIS it was really good, but heavier lenses are tricky - the panny 14-140 was a more miss than hit lens for me sadly.

Re the grip, that's contentious 😁 as the grip in theory should be the lens hand for support and the grip hand for pressing shutter (if professionals are the be believed!). We all have our own styles naturally.
Waiting for the EM5 to drop to around 500

I also have the 75-300 Oly, which is similar weight and quite a lot longer than this - it's also usable handheld, although much better with something to brace against and there has to be decent light. It's a bit faster than this lens at 20mm too though, so not really a fair comparison.

Really you need good light when you're that zoomed though regardless of the lens or body if you want to keep things sharp.

(and I do use my camera the way you mention - but with the tiny pm1 body the shutter hand adds precious little in the way of support or stability! My larger bodies are a little better in this regard, but I don't have anything you'd consider to have a "proper" grip!)
I think as others have said, while a good lens and gets good reviews, in the uk that aperture means youll be stuck to static targets or high iso's. So while it maybe good, its actual uses are very limited.
However, would be great for using nearer the equater/on holiday.


Heat for the deal tho, thats a powerful camera with an expensive lens.
Ordered. Crazy price. 14.85% cashback quidco and tcb. Thank you op

Wow, very temping with the cashback on top!
jackw3319/08/2020 21:59

Yes, mine just tracked to £121


Which one did you use? Quidco or TCB? I'm thinking to place an order too lol
Looks like buyers might also be able to get a free leather strap:
olympus-imagespace.co.uk/enj…ns/


Too bad their promotion isn't a free vertical grip like the mark 1 that I got back in the days.
Omg, well... I splashed out on this. TCB has traked at £121.15.
It's probably the most I have spent from a HUKD listing.
Thanks OP for the code

Looks like the tracked amount is for Existing customers at 11.55%.
I wonder if it is worth filing for the New Customers cashback rate of 14.85% for a further £34 cashback (£155.78 total cashback)
I'm worried they might invalidate the cashback because of the OMD500 voucher used?

Snippet from TCB site: What will stop me getting cashback?

Better to leave it like this and hopefully will be paid.
They always say that about codes. You just have to hope the person verifying the cashback on the retailers side doesn't care about checking
I bit the bullet and ordered, eeek! Went through TopCashback, never even thought about Quidco. Doh! Hasn’t tracked yet though.

I’ll decide whether to keep the lens later, or ebay it. It’s possibly overkill, as I have the 12-40 Pro, 40-150, and 75-300 already. But, it is tempting as a weatherproof do-it-all single lens for a day out thing.

Thanks OP, you’ve made me a lot poorer!

They don't but you will be left with effectively a discontinued item with no support.

Why not invest £1000 in the far superior Sony with eye focus tracking.
I still enjoy micro four thirds system and the benefits it brings, and don’t see any reason to change.
Bit the bullet my self as well, Already have the shipping information
Wow amazing deal. Have moved off m43 but would have been all over this when I was still on the system!

Only the 12-40 Pro out of those is weather sealed thought, right? That's what's putting me off - I'm happy with my lenses currently but would need to shed out a whole load on lenses again to go weather sealed.

I guess you could carry on using your normal lenses, then if the weather turns bad whip out the 12-200mm. But I could still imagine getting caught in a dust storm or something unexpected and not be ready...

a) Maybe you already have a collection of MFT lenses
b) Eye tracking is mainly useful for sports and fast-moving portraits. Not many actually need that.

Yep, that's correct. The 12-40 Pro is a relatively hefty lump compared to the others, which will probably live on this larger body. That and the included 12-200 should be pretty useful combo.

There's no way I'd get rid of my beloved E-M10 MkII, which has been round the world with me, and is still going strong. It's great fun with the smaller lenses, and really makes use of the small size benefit of micro four thirds. It'll still get plenty of use as my point and shoot and fair weather camera

I'm very much looking forward to owning both to be quite honest!

Surely it is dependant on which company buys Olympus, because if Sony, Canon or Nikon did, then it could carry on as a business.
