Olympus America announces OM-D E-M5 free accessory rebate promotion

Free lens adapters or FL-300 flash if you buy an E-M5 in the US

After the UK initiative of a limited time introductory offer of a free HLD-6 battery grip for early adopters of the OM-D E-M5, Olympus America has revealed its own promotional rebate scheme. A pdf document with details of the scheme and a claim can now be downloaded.

As the document says: "Purchase any of the eligible products and accessories listed between April 1, 2012 and May 31, 2012. Products must be purchased at any authorized Olympus Imaging America dealer or reseller."

The offer applies to certain combinations of kit lens model and body colour, or body only. It appears you need to pay for the eligible accessory at the time of purchase and then claim the rebate for that accessory afterwards. Redemption requests must be postmarked by 15th June 2012.

You can claim against a MMF-3 Four Thirds lens adapter - that's the new one with the dust/moisture seal, or a MF-2 OM adapter, or an FL-300 flash.
