    That's a better deal than the NewEgg $199.99 one lens deal, because Adorama doesn't charge sales tax for most folks outside of NY or NJ.

    I hate you :dash2: ... you made me spend $300 on a second camera set. Grrr not sure if I needed the second lens but I guess I'll find out the hard way. :smile:
    I bought two E-PM2s within one month. :rolleyes: That's not my only acquisition this year I also picked up a P&S Sony WX300 (about $140)

    I plan to convert my new second E-PM2 to IR/UV

    Hands down it is the best deal out there on MFT. That's less than the refurbished packages Olympus sells, and even if Olympus runs a 20% discount again those are only $25 less than this after taxes.

    The E-PM2 is great as a second camera, or for someone moving up from a P&S.

    I'm still on the fence due to the PM2's shutter shock issues I read on this forum. If OLY will release a firmware upgrade to address SS similar to the E-P5's it'll be a no brianer. Alas... don't think that's going to happen.

    Shutter shock issues are overblown, don't let them dissuade you from a FANTASTIC camera (I have two). Set your minimum shutter speed to 1/160 and enjoy the camera.

    If I hadn't bought 2 e-pm2s (and the 40-150 previously), this would be on my list. I really wanted the silver E-PM2 so I could add an Aki Asahi skin. It's really the best value out there (and the lack of physical controls is only a minor issue with the SCP turned on).

    (I added the skins to a black and a white body, but the contrast with the silver is my favorite. I also have a silver E-PL2 and love the look...)

    How hard is it to sell the silver 40-150mm? Has anyone sold it successfully for at least $100 when parting out the kit?

    Good to know, but the kit 14-42 R might be harder to part. I've been able to sell two kit lenses at $100 a pop to local buyers who wanted to buy same day, but I think I've been lucky!

    My take is that the going rate on ebay is $75-80, but after the ebay and Paypal fees and shipping, and you're doing well to clear $65 OTOH, you can clear $90-100 on the 40-150.

    Just got the camera. external box is dated 12/10/13... inventory is a tad old.
    I am guessing the camera was not as a big of a seller than Adorama was hoping..
