Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mirrorless Camera Price Drops to $799 (Body Only)

Olympus OM-D E-M5 has clearly been outdone by it's new sibling, OM-D E-M1, but it is still one of the best mirrorless interchangeable lens camera in the market.  Looking at options in MFT format camera, I'd still consider this 2nd best camera together with Olympus E-P5.

Now, the price has dropped to $799, it makes it even more appealing choice in the crowded compact high grade cameras.
