    Just this morning I saw the Zuiko 40-150 2.8 pro at the Olympus outlet. I picked one up @ $1199. The 12-40 2.8 is also back on the list @$639

    I have generally found the answer after asking two questions. First, do you pay sales tax? In your case the answer is not, so you get an almost 10% savings on that purchase over me being your neighbor to the north. Second, do you want a warranty beyond the 90 days? If not, and the answer to the first question is no, then it is a pretty good deal. If you add an extended Olympus warranty to your purchase (and if the answer to the first question is yes and you have a high sales tax rate), then it may make sense to buy online from a place like B&H because the difference becomes much smaller.

    Good luck,

    The extended warranty isn't that much...

    $80 when not on sale. If you live in a high sales tax state, the two eat up your savings quite quickly.
