Today only, as part of the DealZone, B&H is introducing the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III Mirrorless Camera with 12-40mm f/2.8 Lens for $1,999 shipped. It’s usually $2800, and that 29% discount makes it one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for this camera. Adorama is also offering this one-day deal at the same price as part of the deal of the day. The Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera is “well rounded” as it “was built with speed, versatility, and portability in mind.” The 20.4MP Live MOS sensor is paired with an updated TruePic IX image processor for continuous shooting at 60fps while using the electric shutter and 15fps with the mechanical shutter. The 5-axis sensor shift image stabilization system can compensate for up to 7.5 stops of camera shake. While it doesn’t include a V-Log, you do get an OM-Log from Olympus that extends effective dynamic range and color grading capability. The weather-tight construction means you can take this camera anywhere without too much worry. The included 12-40mm f/2.8 lens is an ideal all-around lens for most scenarios. The f/2.8 maximum aperture means it will perform well in low light across the focal range.
