    Not sure if this is good or bad vs the various other E-P5 deals we have seen recently, but in case anyone was underwhelmed by the new E-P announcement and wants the classic "5" this may help. My email notification said for VIP members only, but this link seems to get you to the sale price.

    Placed an order... even if I flip this, it has to be enough to net me a small profit for my lens fund :)

    It's about a $50 savings from the pre-New Years sale. I already had the 40-150 anyway

    I placed an order as well. It looked like a great deal to me, though now, I'll be stuck with two the same lenses. Guess I'll have to sell the new one in the box.

    Wow - that's a pretty good deal.

    I was waiting until they released a new Pen, and was planning on picking up an EP5 body (have an original EP1 with lenses) …
    went to the web site, and it said - only 20 minutes left on the deal - so I did a few quick questions and pulled the trigger…

    Fingers crossed…

    (normally I buy from B&H, but I would consider Adorama for deals like this …)

    … hmm … maybe it's been extended …

    It's Jan 14 - 9:18 PM PST - which works out to Jan 15, 00:18 AM, and the link still works …

    That is better than the $349 for the body only that I paid 3 weeks ago.

    Gone now and Amazon is now at $800 for just the body. Riiiight . . . bet sales have dropped off a bit.

    I found a better deal from Roberts Camera (at least for me): Olympus PEN E-P5 16.1 MP Micro 4/3 Digital Camera Body w/ VF-4 Finder, Black

    It's better for me because the Roberts deal includes the VF-4, which I don't have.

    … just a followup …
    The product was recently delivered from Adorama (paid $14.50 for 3 day UPS shipping).
    Everything looks great. The E-P5 had version 1.0 FW, which I upgraded to 1.6 from the Olympus website.
    Seems to be an excellent little bundle.
