    I'm jonesing for a black Oly 17mm 1.8 lens. One member of this forum recommended that people looking for the new black one merely have to wait until mid-June when some (lots of) folks (perhaps) start selling the 17mm off their new E-P5 kits.

    Do people think that is good advice? Sounds reasonable. Or should I buy the kit myself and sell off the camera and EVF? More hassle, it seems. Either way, I think I'll end up with a black 17mm for $325-$350.

    Does anyone out there who ordered the E-P5 kit want to sell me the 17mm lens when it arrives?
