    Wow... Silver is sold out but there are other colors. This makes it cheaper than what they sell refurb E-PM1s for.

    Since it says "New Low Price" I wonder if this will be the standard refurb price from now on?

    The two lens E-PM2 kit (14-42 + 40-150mm) is $319:
    http://www.getolympus.com/us/en/out...4-42mm-m-40-150mm-r-lenses-reconditioned.html

    43Rumors reported on March 3 that Olympus has discontinued the EPM2 to make way for new PEN models to be announced in May-June. "The last couple of weeks I got feedback from storeowners saying the E-PM2 is now discontinued. Some of them also said the E-P5 has been discontinued too. They have been told by Olympus reps new models are on the horizon. It is likely that Olympus will announce them in a timeframe set between May and June. There is no info yet about possible specs. All we know for certain is that the PEN line isn’t as successful as the OMD line and Olympus needs to reinvent the wheel to make it very attractive!"

    Yes, because its been discontinued. I expect other retailers will join in. Looks like only red is available now in the one lens kit. The two lens EPM2 kits have more colors available.

    I wouldn't mind keeping the same sensor, but would like to see 1/8000 and the E-M10's 3 axis image stabilizer!

    What a great deal. I picked one up for a little bit more. Combine this with VF-4 (my next step) and it's a pretty cheap but capable setup! Too bad I missed out on the VF4 deal from earlier today

    They had a similar VF-4 deal in early February. But they do tend to sell out quickly.

    I hope the e-P5+VF-4 +17mm kits get price-slashed to make way for the shiny new things.
    Want!

    E-M1 is under $1000 - actually $900 if your state has no tax...

    pretty awesome.

    That's a bit odd since the firmware has only very recently been upgraded.

    I'm led to believe this is only true in the US and Europe. In Asia, the Pens are very successful.

    Insane price. I paid $475 for my body only. Just cause I couldn't wait in Nov 2012.
