    Amazing. I don't need one, but if I lived in the US I'd just buy one anyhow and use it as a carry anywhere 35mm equiv camera.

    Yep, if you count at least $250 for 17mm and $100 for VF4 then it's EP5 body for $250.

    I got the Adorama deal (ep5 & 40-150 for $399) but I prefer this one, and would return the Adorama bundle if anyone here got the Roberts' deal and want flip for $100 profit. Please email me, as I have to decide by 2/11.
    Thanks

    Is there anyway to set up notification of these specific ones on ebay? Btw I contacted Roberts last week and was told they wouldn't be getting any more, so I'm surprised they came back in.

    Ebay has a fairly decent search/notification system. Since Roberts seems to use the same auction title you could possibly generate a search on that and attach a price filter, then set it as a saved search.

    The only caveat is it it seems ebay runs the searches every so often, while it'd notify you probably that day, it may not be quick enough to catch one if any more came in.

    What I'd suggest is create both a specific to Roberts search but also a wider/broader search with a price filter. I'm guessing this was a close-out on Roberts part, clearing either their stock or clearing stock they purchased from another camera dealer. With the upcoming PenF I wouldn't be surprised to see other shops do something similar.

    I have created a search specific to the Roberts post, and will probably do what you suggested regarding the broader search. Thank you.
