    45mm F1.8 as freebie is pretty nice

    14-42mm kit lens is a decent starting out lens, the 40-150mm (non-pro non-f2.8) f4-f5.6 is pretty rubbish, unsharp, and cheap construction. The 45mm f1.8 is a fantastic lens with limited uses, but still a great lens and always on with me.

    The EM10 mark 3 is a pretty decent camera, and I have no complaints about it.

    Deal wise, it's just okay. good if you're in the market. Won't get an upvote from me, especially with Ted's and their "Smartphones are lame, Get a REAL camera" dumb and patronising marketing. Every camera is a real camera and the best camera is the one you have on you, and smartphone cameras take better pics than just about all the point and shoot cameras in your store these days.

    If you need weatherproofing, and a full tilty screen, I'd wait for the OMD EM5 Mark 3 that is seriously overdue and meant to come out somewhere this year.

      I know the 40-150mm gets a bad wrap but I've had good luck with mine in decent light, worked fine when in a pinch on a recent safari..

      The 40-150mm weighs less than 200g for a telephoto zoom. Of course it's going to have a cheap construction, like every cheap and light lens. I don't think you can find something much better at that price and weight.

    Get a RX100 VA and be done with it.

    If anyone is visiting Hong Kong, you can get it for about $700aud

    Panasonic Leica Lenses also fit the Olympus OMD.

    Decent deal not the best as others have said but still alright.

    I got my EM-10 Mk III body for 500 new in the new years sales from DigiDirect and just bought the 14-42mm kit lens cheap second hand.

    Also bought the 45mm f1.8 second hand but got quite lucky as was mint condition, and I can attest to the sharpness of this lens. Has impressed me time and time again.

    All up spent about 850AUD so with some mixing and matching can get yourself a good deal

      So given this deal also has a $200 40-150 lens, this deal is better value than your collection of new/used gear ;)

    This is a fantastic deal.
    45mm is superb. Love it.
    I have Olympus mk2 body with this set and costed way more when I bought it.
    I don’t use the zoom kits. Handy, but not needed. Tele lens and short Tele lens are good quality though.
    But I got myself a 12mm and 17mm. Those are fantastic lenses.
    Later I got 60mm f2.8 macro. So much better than Nikon dx macro for me.
    I sold over $3000-$4000 rrp Nikon dx lens to get my set of Olympus. Do not regret one bit.

    Hi OzB. I am new to the world of mirrorless cameras and have been looking for some option for pretty casual photography. This deal is now down to $898. Is this a good buy now? I am off to New Zealand in November and need something for good outdoor shots. Will this suffice? Also an anyone confirm which is better - Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 or this? Appreciate your responses.

    I do professional photography portraits with Olympus em10 mk2 and 45mm f1.8. It’s excellent quality.
    However, like every single mirrorless or slr. You need to learn to use manual shooting and learn to shoot to get excellent results. It’s not just about an excellent camera.

    But it should do you good on auto or aperture or speed mode.
    Forgot exact names, lol. You just need to learn to shoot. Olympus is very light and portable and small. So it’s great for travelling, If you have money get the 17mm f1.8 Olympus lens as well.
