    I recently found this deal too, but after I saw the $549 deal for olympus factory refurbish E-P3 with kit lens, I immediately go to Olympus.

    This is even cheaper than the $329 Amazon Warehouse deal since you can sell the lens for $100.

    I've been seeing a lot of sellers trying to sell that kit lens for around $70 on craigslist here in the Seattle area.

    Amazon is just being the middleman for Samy's. So either way, you are buying it from Samy's. If Samy's charges tax, Amazon will charge tax. The rebate is instant so isn't really a rebate. Buying directly from Samy's you get a 16gb card and a case, you don't going through Amazon.

    I sold all my M43 gear a few months back, but deals like this really are tempting. The rapid refresh cycle and depreciation of bodies is really amazing. This is point and shoot pricing for a camera that is less than a year old.

    Looks like my GF1 is going to be retired. I just placed my order on Amazon.
