I saw that - just as I'm about to list both of mine on eBay.co.uk :(

I love the E-P5 + VF4 for shooting stills, but I've decided to get the LX-100 for better video performance and compact zoom and then will see if Olympus ups their video game with the E-M5 replacement, or see what Panasonic does for their Gx7 replacement.

I'm going to rely on my E-PM2 for longer-lens duty with the 35-100/2.8.

I bought the E-P5, body only, new for £316 a couple of weeks ago. You can get some good deals from the eBay seller I found in Korea, they were selling over 50 of the E-P5 bodies, all with international warranty. It is a lovely little camera.

I'm always a bit worried that I'll be stung with duty and VAT, which then makes £316 more like £400! I figured I could sell the lens for £50 and then the body is only £350. I also spotted the EM-5 portrait kit on Monday, which includes the 45mm and HLD-6 grip as well as the 12-50mm. The portrait kit was around £700, which is probably just a fair price rather than a good bargain when you compare what you can pick the items up used for. Knowing Amazon the deals will appear again over the week.

I already have a black E-P5 that I love and if I had the money I'd buy another in a New York second! This time I'd like the silver model.

Just put my two ep5 (reluctantly) in silver and black on eBay UK along with my o12-40/2.8.

Loved the cameras for stills, but going to go with the lx100 + pm2 and p35-100/2.8 for now.

This did not show up in their Black Friday deals, and does not now show up in the ones that have passed by. So I am wondering how you found it!

EDIT
Ah, I bet it was not an official Black Friday deal, but simply one of the discounts that come up from time to time. Currently one can buy a kit for £495. Still a bloody good deal!

I found it on the Black Friday ticker tape on the UK Amazon. They had a GX-7 with 20mm and the OM-D Portrait kit today, which I'm sure I saw earlier in the week.
