I realize a lot of our forum members here aren't in the US, but those that are ma be interested in the new rebate offer form Olympus America.


Rebates from Nov 1 - Dec 31 on lenses and flash:
8mm FE -$80
7-14 f4 - $175
12-60 SWD - $100
18-180 - $75
35 F3.5 - $35
35-100 f2 - $250
50-200 f2.8-3.5 - $150
70-300 f4-5.6 - $50
150 f2 - $250

FL36 - $40
FL50 - $80
STF22 - $75

Also of interest, slrgear.com has been promising 7 new reviews of Olympus lenses. The new reviews aren't up yet, but it appears they've updated the pages with the test results, including their cool interactive blur charts.

35mm f3.5 Macro
50mm f2
150mm f2
14-42 f3.5-5.6
40-150 f4-5.6
14-54 f2.8-3.5
50-200 f2.8-3.5 SWD

All giving some pretty impressive results. The 14-42 kit seems to suffer some in the corners throughout, and it looks like the 50-200 is maybe a bit soft on the edges wide open at 200mm. But very little there to complain about. The 40-150 kit looks like it's sharp enough up to about 100mm to be a much higher priced lens, though it suffers from higher CA than the better lenses. And the primes look to be near flawless (even at f2).

Hi Ken

Thanks for the heads up on this, its just a pity I'm niot in the US as we never seem to get anything like this at all in the UK. Instead they (Oly) over a rucksack and something else if you buy an E3 and thats it. Not only do we get done over on teh price but we get stuffed again on no rebates!



:O :?
