Rumored Olympus Instant Rebate Program 0

With the official announcement of the much anticipated OM-D E-M5, one has to wonder if Olympus isn’t a little bit scared that – between the high expectations and the real life performance of the camera – they might be making a few of their lesser cameras less appealing.

In a move which might be meant to counter this, Olympus is expected to announce an instant rebate program next week. The rebate – which is said to affect the Olympus E-5, Olympus E-P3, Olympus E-PL3, and Olympus E-PM1 models – will only be available in the United States, and will offer savings of up to 125$ on select camera and kit combinations.

It seems the writers at Lifehacker weren’t kidding when they said January and February were the best months to buy cameras.
