So I checked bhphoto and adorama today, like I do every day, and found that the 12-40 I've been contemplating was listed with a $100 instant rebate. That was all I needed to see...ordered at $899. Just thought I'd share if others have been waiting for a break...

do i need to let go of my 12-60 that i rarely use and get this?!
My personal feeling is no. If you have an E-M1 the AF speed and IQ are pretty much a wash. And the 12-60 has 20 mm more reach. The thing that most surprised me was the lack of difference in feel (weight/size) on the camera. They are both front element heavy and they feel pretty similar, not like the 12-35 which feels tiny by comparison even though it really isn't.

Yes but for me with a kit lens and my travel needs...This is the way to go in my opinion.

Okay, I click submit finally.

I had this in my cart since the pre-order days last year.
I finally click buy on BH for that price.
This better be worth it :)

I think that the OP should cross post this to the Hot Deals section. I wish the Panasonic 12-35 was on sale.

I just wanted your thread to be seen by more people. Thanks for the find!

PS I did post your lens deal with the purchase of a new camera. You might post the lens deal separately.

If you're looking for the panasonic 12-35, i would order it from digitalrev. $869 with free shipping to the US, and they pay for any warranty work done during the warranty period, since there would be no US warranty

Thank you for the suggestion. I purchased the Panasonic 12-35 on ebay this evening from an international vendor. I received an email indicating 10% ebay bucks on purchases over $250. I could not resist.
