    Thanks for this. I passed on Amazon's $499 offering for the Oly 14-150 and now this. I guess with sales tax I won't save any money here, since I live in New Jersey. Still, the question has reared its ugly head once again: 14-150 for the E-PM1 or another $100 for the X10? Hmmm...

    That must be hard to resist. And after you sell off the kit lens, it'll be less than $599:)

    If I did that then I would never own a MFT, seems like they churn out a new one every six months. I ordered the EP-3 this morning with the idea that I will purchase the GH3 whenever it comes out hoping that video will be better than the GH2. (Hopefully it comes out before my little boy is born):rolleyes:

    That is what's stalling me, but that's a darn good price.

    Me too. I want to see what "probable" weather sealed camera Oly has coming up... that and the last thing I want is another 14-40something zoom :wink:

    But really- give me the body only option Oly.

    Thanks for this post, Art! Am thinking of finally taking the plunge into m-4/3rds, and have had my eyes on the E-P3 for a couple of months, waiting for a good deal. Would never have seen this price if it hadn't been for your post.

    Anyone ordered through Unique before? Good reputation?

    First post here, btw; thanks to all of you for sharing this and other great information on the site.

    Quick question guys.......

    I ordered the silver ep3, this morning and now I want to add a lens before they ship my package. What lens do you guys recommend, the Oly 45 or Panny 20mm? I mostly love shooting street photograhy, but I have a baby on the way on want a good lens to capture all his first moments since for the first few months he will be indoors.

    The 20mm 1.7 is my choice for ages 0-1, but once your kid becomes mobile in a year, the 45mm 1.8 will be a better lens for chasing the little ones!

    Thanks Jonathan! And thx for that affiliate code, too.

    Have been waiting to hold a GX1 in my hands to compare, but can't find a store in the Bay Area that carries them. Loved how the E-P3 felt in my hands when I tried it out recently, and although I know it's an older sensor, and will undoubtedly be out-shined by whatever comes out in a few months, etc/etc, it's time to actually make a move. I can spend all my time reading about the best camera, or I can just get the d++m thing. Plus, I've been a good boy, LOL, time for a holiday gift.

    Yeah, they're fine. They're a genuine brick-and-mortar store in Fairfield, New Jersey. They've been there a long time and have been active in the photo community in the region. Order with confidence. :)

    The difference in sensor isn't a big issue unless you only plan to shoot the kit lens. Get any of the fast primes and that 12mp sensor will shine. Plus IBIS will be a big plus for low light still subjects.

    Thanks for the tips/suggestions, Jonathan & Biro. Went ahead and ordered a black E-P3 (14-42 kit) along with the Panny 20mm prime from Unique; the free Next-Day-Air shipping is a nice bonus, as I should get it by xmas.

    Looking forward to joining the micro 4/3rds community here, too!
