Olympus today has introduced the Ultimate Nature Kit, a very impressive offer that will especially appeal to nature photographers. Olympus is essentially offering a free camera body with the purchase of three Olympus lenses (7-14mm ƒ/2.8, 40-150mm ƒ/2.8, 300mm ƒ/4) that are ideal for landscape and wildlife photography. With the purchase of these lenses together for $5,799, you can choose to receive the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II, the OM-D E-M1 Mark III or the OM-D E-M1X for free. That’s up to $3,000 in savings, depending on the camera you select.
With the lenses included in the Ultimate Nature Kit, you’ll have covered a focal length range equivalent to 14mm at the wide end to a 600mm telephoto. We like the OM-D system a lot, especially for wildlife photography. The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 300MM F4.0 IS PRO included in the Ultimate Nature Kit is a lens we talk about frequently for wildlife and sports, as it provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 600mm, but measures only about 9 inches in length and weighs just 2.8 pounds. That’s about one-third of the weight and half the length of a full-frame system 600mm prime lens (which also cost much, much more). It’s a great example of the size and weight advantages of the Olympus OM-D Micro Four Thirds system.
At $5,799, the Ultimate Nature Kit isn’t cheap if you didn’t wake up this morning ready to buy a new camera system, but it’s such a good deal. The offer is valid for U.S. customers until July 5, 2020, so you’ve got a bit of time to think about it, but not too long.
