Olympus Lenses - UK price increases
1

I've just noticed there's been price increases on Olympus lenses here in the UK. Here's a list of some of the new prices of popular lenses,

75mm f1.8 - £899.00

12-40mm f2.8 - £899.00

40-150mm f2.8 - £1249.00

12-100mm f4 - £1199.00

14-150mm f4-5.6 II - £599.00

7-14mm - £1199.00

17mm f1.8 - £449.00

25mm f1.8 - £379.00

45mm f1.8 - £279.00

Some increases are quite significant. E.g. 75mm f1.8 was £549, now £899. These increases are likely to push people into buying grey imports due to the huge price differences. Here's the prices of the lenses listed above from a reputable grey importer.

75mm f1.8 - £439.00

12-40mm f2.8 - £379.00

40-150mm f2.8 - £669.00

12-100mm f4 - £769.00

14-150mm II - £229.00

7-14mm f2.8 - £729.00

17mm f1.8 - 219.00

25mm f1.8 - £185.00

45mm f1.8 - 165.00

As you can see, these prices are massively cheaper. I can only imagine these price increases will have a negative impact on UK dealership sales.
