    hey there! this is my first post and i am a long time B&H customer.

    last friday i ordered E-PL5 and there is no option for discount if you buy a kit plus lens.

    now checking on your site and it looks to me if you ordered E-PL5 you can have also get the 40-150mm for $99!!

    i'd like to have this if it still possible?? though the EPL5 is still enroute and expecting to arrived today.

    thanks in advanced

    Hello,

    According to Olympus's web site, you need to have purchased the Olympus E-PL5 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 14-42mm f/3.5 II R Lens kit from 01/27/2013 - 02/16/2013. You would have to contact our Customer Service Department and see what can be done. With these promotions, the items must be on the same bill (per manufacturer rules) and your current order may have to be returned and repurchased. Customer Service can help you set this up. cs@bandh.com

    We can only "make arrangements" if the US distributor (who makes and enforces these rules) has given us leeway to do so. Recently leeway has been very hard to come by while enforcement of the rules is considerably more strict with correspondingly draconian penalties for flouting them.

    Email your B&H order number and I'll take a look but I am not confident.

    I asked you to do this for me two weeks ago, and you denied. If the rules change now, and exceptions are being made, I will be very disappointed.

    If the rules had changed (and it seems they have not) it would have been Olympus America, not B&H, who changed them.
