Re: UK E-M1X deal

T'is the way of digital cameras Considering how much the UK launch price was it is quite a  good deal if you are looking for what it offers

Directly converted, this is the price in Aus when on special, which happens regularly ... I got lucky a few weeks after launch and got it for even a bit less.

It is the lowest I have seen here in the UK . Though the UK price at launch which includes taxes , at £2800 { $3740 US or $5490 AUS } was hefty. I notice that the price is not just a Christmas offer but stretches to the end of March 2020. Certainly brings it into the reach of more potential buyers

Yes, as the X comes "with" a power grip and 2 batteries, I was prepared for $3500 AUD. It launched at $4300 and I withdrew my pre order. It seems to have settled at about $3600 for now, and as I got mine for $3400, I am happy. At one stage, it was available with coupon codes via Ebay for about $3200 or $3600 with a FL900R flash thrown in, worth $549. I think the X will be at around $3000 AUD on promotion often next year and maybe here and there a few hundred better, but I dont expect it to get much cheaper than that unless an X mkii takes 4 years to come out and/ or an EM1.3 blows it out the water feature wise and launches at $3000 AUD.
