In today's Countdown to Christmas deal we bring you news of an offer from Olympus, featuring its Pen E-P1.

In the UK, from Saturday 12 December, when you buy a Pen E-P1 you'll qualify for a free FL-14 flash, with the offer open until the end of January 2010. After your purchase, register online and then send in your receipt and barcode before the 28 February and the flash will be sent directly to your home.

In Europe, the offer goes live on the 15 December along with the full terms and conditions, with the US sadly missing out.

Looking around and Jessops seems to have the price about right, selling it for £579 with 14-42mm lens and free delivery (although please let us know in the comments if you find it cheaper somewhere else). If you'd like more information on the camera itself then we recommend taking a look at Pocket-lint's full review, otherwise you can click through on this link which will take you through to the Jessops website.
