Terrific B&H Photo Trade-In Deals on Panasonic: Traded in Olympus OM-D E-M1 for a Panasonic Lumix DC-G9
Get Panasonic Lumix G9 at B&H Photo.
I’ve been wanting a modern Micro Four Thirds camera for at least a year now, but budget held me back. But B&H now has a Panasonic promotion which involves a $400 trade-in bonus plus the value of the trade in. Along with the $200 discount on the Panasonic DC-G9, this makes it viable for me:
Panasonic G9: $1497.99 after $200 instant savings
-$275 trade-in value for my Olympus E-M1
-$400 trade-in bonus
= $822.99 net cost for Panasonic G9.
The Panasonic DC-9 caught my eye as a very capable video and stills camera (80-megapixel pixel shift images also) along with a high-res EVF similar to the Nikon Z7 and a very strong feature set.
So I boxed up the Olympus E-M1 and sent it in.
- My favorite lens for mountain biking videos is the Panasonic Lumix 8mm f/3.5 fisheye.
- My favorite in terms of size/weight/awesomeness is the Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 ASPH. POWER OIS.
- For wildlife including handheld awesomeness: the Panasonic Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 POWER OIS—see my April wildlife shots.
Most all of the Panasonic lenses are very nice and all of the higher-grade Olympus ones also.
