    I think before, there was a G5 kit for 320, but doesn't include the 45-150. so for around 130 more you get the lens. Not sure if it's a great lens, the range is some where around 90-300mm in 35mm format, if the lens is great, it's worth it, if not, then bleh, 130 can be put toward something useful

    While it's perhaps not a great lens, it's certainly a good lens, and amazingly compact for the reach it provides. It's as good as the 45-175 (although it lacks the power zoom and internal zoom & focus features) and it's probably better, and certainly far smaller and lighter than the Panasonic 45-200mm lens. That's certainly an excellent price, and the lens is certainly a good choice for a telephoto - so the 2 lens kit is a great deal. If you want a significantly better lens in that range for m4/3, you need to spend $1000 on the 35-100 - so I certainly wouldn't say "bleh" on that deal
