Olympus Outlet is having 15% off sale on pro gear, including the EM-1 Mark II body, using code SPRINGSALE.

These typically sell out quickly, so I would not wait if you're interested.

The 15% off also applies to most of the "pro" lenses in the line.

Weird, they only have the heavy and expensive pro lenses available.

Good deals; too bad I moved away from M43 to Sony a couple of years ago and sold all my stuff, otherwise I'd be very tempted to pick up the 12-40mm 2.8 lens.

The price for the Olympus OM-D EM-1 Mark II is very good. Usually, it would be out of stock by now. I guess many shooters are moving to Sony (especially for the upcoming A7 III)

I used to want this camera, but Sony's new a73 is just too good in a full frame package for this to compete anymore. Granted the em1 has better focus but not by much anymore....

Keep in mind it's not just the body - the lenses matter too. Difficult to find a reasonably sized and priced 12-100 equivalent in the full frame world. Not to mention all those tiny-cheap-good f1.7/1.8 primes.
Full frame is bigger and heavier than M43, none of that has changed. If that's not an issue for you, by all means, the A7III might be a very nice cam.

True, the small lenses are fantastic, although an f/1.8 on m43 compared to a f/1.8 on a full frame is a world of difference. I honestly didn't enjoy the bokeh and the large depth of field on my m43 after going full frame. f/1.8 on a full frame is so shallow I can get the creamiest background with just a few inches/feet of separation. For macro work though, the m43 platform really shined. I had the original A7 for a few years, and its weight is nearly that of the EM-1 though. Also with a 35 f/2.8 it's a light package that in my opinion produced some amazing IQ, without that much more weight than an EM-1 and similar f/1.8 lens (*to get the same DoF*).

Waiting for 20-25% sale before pulling the trigger on EM1 II.

Yep, if you are after "razor thin" DOF, then FF is definitely the way to go.
Me, I am more than happy with what I can get from the 45/1.8, but am more into landscapes (where more DOF is better) than studio portraits, where something like an 85/1.8 gets the first third of the second eyelash in focus. Applause
IQ is really the same... I doubt anyone could tell the difference in comparison images (same DOF) I shot with my FF and my MFT cameras. I know I can't, even pixel peeping. laugh out loud

I personally value the smaller size, speed of the camera, and battery life from micro 4/3 more than the incremental DOF I'd get from the Sony system. Also, there's a pretty awesome selection of lenses and the lens cost is much more reasonable!

I'm biased as I have an M10 Mark I now and a few lenses, so excited about upgrading to the M1 Mark II.
