Good deal on this Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II Camera?

Who knows this camera?  It's $200 off.  I've been looking around at one of these.  Having a bundle with lens is preferred for me.  This will be my first Olympus.

Why so serious?

Well I had seen it on Best Buy  for $549 and it only had the 14-42mm lens to it.  And it's Silver.  


What do you think of the camera in general?  I love the retro look of the camera.  It just looks classic.  16.1MP isn't top of the scale these days. but plenty for me.

You should check their used stock for deals.  New might not be the best path for deals.

I had the original E-M10. It was a very good camera and the Mark II is even better. It will take a bit to get used to it, but you will be surprised at the images it can produce. My suggestion is to not try to learn everything about the camera at first, just use it like you normally use your camera now, then add in new features as you go along. If you try to master everything it does first thing, you may get frustrated. They are available body only for 449 refurbished on the Olympus website. I've been shooting with Olympus for 4 or so years now, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Brother has this camera, it's nice.  He's had it for a few months and loves it.  That's all I know.  Worth noting, that this was his first camera.

So can you use any other manufactures glass on Olympus cameras?  Speaking of which and just a out of curiosity sort of question, which brands can you swap out between one another, if any?

You can use any Micro 4/3's lenses on any other micro 4/3 camera. All the mounts are the same. Most lenses will not lose any of their functions between brands. Mixing brands will lose dual stabilization. Panasonic and Olympus are the two main players in micro four thirds. You can also adapt other brands such as Nikon, Canon and the rest to a micro four thirds camera. You will give up full functionality in those instances.

Sorry. That was the MK III for 449. KEH has a silver "like new" MK II for $379. They have the 14-42 kit lens for $175 or even better the 14-150 for $313. The 14-150 gives the same FOV as a 28-300 on full frame. The 10 MKII with the 14-150 would be a good kit and cover a lot of bases.

As Shadowfixer1 noted, images will be fine. I prefer the E-M5 (which I have), but I am a fussy cuss. Gooood luck with the notorious Oly menu system.

Man, thats a savings.  I would go with the 14-150mm for the $313.  That's a pretty good deal on that lens.
