    Olympus bargains

    B&H have the Olympus 70-300mm lens on offer now for $287.95. That's considerably cheaper than when I bought mine only 4 months ago. I wonder if that means it is about to get updated? Either way it seems like a bargain to me.

    And I was happy when I got mine for $305 three months ago! I hope the new one (if any) has SWD and is smaller, I'd gladly sell my 70-300, 18-180, and 14-42 to get it.

    If you are near closing Circuit City stores the deals have finally hit the floor. They have a few days left and about the only new, in-the-box DSLRs are Olympus. They are all 40% off original list. I decided to move up from my E510 to the E520 as it was $389 before tax. There seem to be a lot of E420's left. There are even a few orphaned E330's in one local store in Atlanta. It is a little weird since the older cameras like the Ex10 series had hihger list prices than the Ex20's they are now more expensive.

    Accessories are a good deal at 50% off. I picked up a FL36R for $115. I saw a few 70-300's new for $200. All the closing locations are in their last 5 days here in Atlanta. It was on 5 days left that the DSLR discount moved to 40% off original price.

    Do you know where or how to find these stores? There are two in my town and neither are closing, in fact one just opened. But I'll be driving through California, Oregon, and Washington shortly, so I wouldn't mind stopping by as I went.

    Those that opened recently had the best selection of current products. The one I visited back over Thanksgiving in Goodyear, AZ had only opened in May. Some Atlanta stores have already consolidated into others. Definitely worth a trip. I am almost thinking of a second FL36R, but I believe that might lead to spousal death threats...

    Prices are dropping 10% per day at the closing stores. DSLRs are 60% off original list. I still saw a few E420 single lens kits for $275 new in-the-box.
