Pen F

I loved that camera which was just a touch expensive for what it was. Right now found it on the biggest online retailers site in Germany (not gonna use names here) for 600€ including the 17 f1.8. Battling myself if I should buy one. Not going to decide before tonight. Anybody interested should check it out. That seems like a steal. Oh I hate GAS...

Re: Pen F

What is the name of the retailer?

Amazon, also the owner of this forum, so I don't see any need to be shy about mentioning them.

Only 5 left though!

Oly Pen-F €600 at Amazon.de

Thanks for your confirmation.

ps: Actually the seller is a third party company named WELLENBRECHER, but they operate through Amazon.de.

Notice that they ask you to contact them before ordering.

"* Bitte machen Sie keine Bestellungen, ohne um Genehmigung zu bitten, ohne unsere Erlaubnis wird die Bestellung storniert."

It sounds like a scammer account.

Re: Pen F

That sounds strange. Maybe Amazon should check them...

It is. Contacted the seller after contemplating to place an order, received an unprofessional answer with spelling mistakes, got even an offer to buy 2 and receive 3 (!), and btw to send my personal details to have them (!) place the order with Amazon on my behalf.

Too good of an offer to be true.

I escalated the scam with Amazon customer service for good measure.

Thanks. Should have done so myself. In the past summer I had a great deal with Amazon itself for an Fuji X-T2 including the 18-55 lens for 800€ so At first I thought it may be a serious offer. That being said Olympus cameras usually aren’t as heavily discounted and hold their value pretty well.

That looks like 1300 euros, not 600

Yesterday it pointed to the €600 deal, which (as it appears) has been removed by Amazon.
