m.zuiko 40-150 is only 109.99 at staples.com

Just found this price I can't believe how cheap it is and thought someone might want to check it out. First go to staples.com and look at item 905931. It will show 249.99. Then at the top search bar add -L1 to the item number so it's 905931-L1 and do a search, bam...150 off instantly making it 149.99. Then there's an additional 40 off.

I don't know if the price is wrong...but I'm putting an order in now. comes up as 119.06 with tax. I guess if some state don't have a physical store maybe there's no tax for you guys.

If I were to buy a 1 lens kit epl2 and this lens from staples, it would be cheaper than buying the double lens kit for epl2 at 699.99.

Also, I've posted in another post that adding -L1 to the end of item number will result in cheaper price for some items...not sure anyone read it cause no one comment on it. Or maybe you guys own everything already and just don't need it.

Thanks for the great find! The VF-2 is $199.99 after applying -L1. Please update when your order went through.

It's totally insane I ordered two! They deliver to a store near you for free and fast!

Thanks for the tip

Just placed an order. Who would have thought that Staples would be a source of such great deals -- first the VF-2 at $199 and no the m.zuiko 40-150 at $109.99 both with free shipping (I did pay state sales tax)!!

its $150 at Amazon. Its a slow lens in a dead format. Not a surprise they are trying to get rid of them.

your confusing four-thirds with micro four-thirds!

Yes, the 4/3 lens is ~$150 and may well be a "dead" format but the micro 4/3rds format is alive and well and the micro 40-150 is going for $220 at Amazon, double the Staples L1 price!

While this lens is a bit slow, it is a great travel lens, light and relatively small.

Re: m.zuiko 40-150 is only 109.99 at staples.com

That is a different old very heavy lens you are reffering to. The staples deal is for new light (198g) m43 lens with fast autofocus and optimized for video. You won't find it cheaper than $200 even on ebay. It's probably the lightest and smallest telephoto lens out there. I beleive Staples has good in-store return policy if anything. By the way Staples also has Olympus VF-2 for $199 to get this deal enter item number 905932-l1 into search box. i wonder if there any other goodies but I.m going to sleep. Will see if this deal lasts through the night, lol

Thanks! I just ordered mine - still in stock

Thanks so much - I've been wanting to find a good deal on this lens. You can't beat this one!

I called to be sure it is still in stock - she said "yes, looks like we have plenty of stock" and said it would be delivered tomorrow (I live in NJ).

Looks like my 4/3 version will be going to Amazon!

Many thanks!

I've ordered one with mixed feeling of hope and uncertainty. I still can't believe in such a miracle and 'm afraid of getting old 43 lens instead of M43. Staples is capable to confuse everybody.

Re: m.zuiko 40-150 is only 109.99 at staples.com

Just ordered one...for that price, if I don't like it, I can sell it for a profit, most likely. Plus, I've been interested in this as well...my Panny 45-200 can be great sometimes and terrible others, so I'm interested to see how this performs. I've seen some very good samples with it, so I'm hopeful. Also, it's much lighter and smaller, so might make a better day hike lens.
