Just an FYI. I noticed that Olympus just recently cut prices on both the 410& 510 in the U.K. Wonder if the US will also soon get a cut? Has anyone heard any rumors?

Here is a copy of the announcement

"Press release (UK):

Olympus has announced that they are dropping the price of both their E410 and E510 D-SLR range.

The E410 body is now reduced to £319.99, a drop of £20. The E410 Single Lens kit, Double Zoom and Travel Kits all experience a £50 price reduction, now at £349.99, £449.99 and £399.99 respectively.

The E510 DSLR's have also experienced fantastic price reductions, up to as much as £150 on the range. Prices are £339.99 for the E510 body, £449.99 for the Single lens Kit, £549.99 for the Double Zoom kit and £499.99 for the Travel Kit."

Hi Steve

Thanks for the headsup on the new prices. A £150 drop on the E510 kit is a big reduction and I do hope they pass the same % cut to the consumers in the otherside of the pond. It did make me think that there must be another camera in the works and also if there was a price drop for the E3 in the works?



:O :?

I'm not sure we'll see that much of a price drop here in theUS (if at all). Remember, UK prices are usually much higher than US prices. So, it appears that the reduction is simply to align the prices with the US.
