    If you are lucky enough to have access to the Panasonic employee pricing program, they are selling a bundle which includes the Panasonic GH1 body, and the newer 14-42mm Kit lens (bundle gives a discount equivalent to the lens price) for $375 plus tax/shipping.

    In order to find the deal, you must go to the lenses page on the EPP site, rather than the camera/body section - it will be towards the bottom of the page.

    P.x. I caved and bought it, so my departure from m4/3 was a short one! I couldn't resist the unique sensor, built-in viewfinder and articulating screen. Anyone have an m4/3-K adapter they aren't using? :)

    Thanks for the tip! I had been planning on buying the GH2 but for this deal I couldn't afford to pass it up. I just placed my order too.

    I received my lens on friday (which was stated to be backordered), but no camera! (which was supposed to be in stock!). I also got my K mount adapter yesterday, all the way from Hong Kong ordered last monday - quite surprised as that is much faster than usual. Can't wait to give the GH1 a good run. Hopefully it'll be coming today - who knows though, the panasonic site is the worst for getting updates on your order.

    Become a fan of facebook.com/panasonic and you'll have access to the same deals. Yesterday they said that the offer was good through the end of Feb, and then they jacked the price up $50. Grrrrrrr.

    Joe (over at PF/dp) noted that once you add it to the cart it goes back down to the $375 - that was last week, don't know if it still might do that.
