Hi Tony,

Do we merely click through on your Amazon links to get you your 4%, and then send to Olympus a form with proof of purchase to claim the grip? I see no mention of the special offer on the Amazon site. I want the best of both worlds, supporting fourthirdsphoto and free stuff. :D

I don't know how Amazon is doing it. B&H doesn't list it either.

At KEH's website, it says that if you buy the E-3 and the Grip "on the same invoice", you get an "instant rebate" of $200.

Hopefully Amazon does the same thing...?

I went ahead and tried an order with both items. I got all the way to confirming and accepting the order. No discount showed up. Sigh. :dontknow:

Interestingly, the price of the E-3 is ~$40 less than when I checked yesterday. The price of the 12-60mm is $34 less.

It should work with either B&H or Amazon. Just using the same invoice, fill out the registration card, and you should be good to go. Their is no mention about where you cannot buy the camera.
Thanks for buying through a link - it all helps out.

I've secured an Oly E-3 for A$2200. A pretty good deal - pick it up on 16 April (under the 30 days before I fly out of the country).

BUT unlike the customers in the USA, Europe and the UK - Oly AU gives us

NO free battery grip
NO rebate
NO free back packJust a high price and lots of attitude.

Sigh.
