OM System, the company which took over the former Olympus camera and lens division, is running a big summer promotion, enabling you to save decent money on some of its mirrorless cameras and lenses.

The highlight is a total saving of £800 when you buy its OM-1 Mark II flagship camera and a 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25X IS Pro lens together. You get the saving via cashback, which is a popular scheme with a lot of makers.

This camera and lens combination is a good choice for wildlife and bird photographers, delivering lots of advanced features while also being lightweight and weatherproof.

If you buy them separately, there is £350 back on the camera, and £450 back on the lens.
