If youâ€™re looking to buy an entry-level digital SLR today you have a few good choices: Nikonâ€™s D40 & D40x, Canonâ€™s Rebel XTi and Pentaxâ€™s K100D. And donâ€™t forget the older models that broke ground for DSLRs: Nikon D70 and D70s and Canon EOS 350D (Rebel XT) which can now be had at bargain prices, making them very good cameras for the money.
Joining these low-priced DSLRs is the Olympus E-410 which today also offered a Â£50 ($100) and a price drop, according to a press release issued by the company.
â€œNot only has the award winning Olympus E-410 has (sic) been reduced in price but now you can claim a Â£50 cash back when you buy this superb Olympus digital SLR,â€ the announcement said, making us understand that the total price reduction will be Â£100, thatâ€™s a substantial $200 reduction.
Oly says that to take advantage of the offer, you may pick up a leaflet in the store or complete the online form at www.olympus.co.uk/cashback. But we have to warn you though, this link only takes you to the Olympus home page, and searching for cashback in their website is a disappointing exercise in futility.
What gives, Olympus?
