    Hi all
    After doing weeks of research and price matching, I finally pull the trigger on an EP1 twin lense kit, which cost at AU$835. I found the price to be very reasonable since the 2 lenses themselves would cost more than $600 if brought individually.

    Anyway, I will be receiving them at the end of the week. And hope but then I could starting shoot and learning from this forum.

    Cheers

    ps: This would be my first camera :smile:

    Hi Ding,
    welcome to this forum. M43 is a great format, so light and versatile.
    I use Panasonic, but brand is not important.
    Cheers

    Welcome, Another from the mob joining up.

    BTW, that price is insanely cheap. Is that in Aussie dollars and bought locally?

    Hello and welcome ding96 - you made a good choice. The aussie contingent seems to be growing here on mu-43.

    Thanks for all the reply :)

    The price was indeed in Australian dollar, it was purchased on Ted's with a price match.

    How things change.

    When I went to Teds in August last year they wouldn't discount the TLK by a single cent from the rrp and were only offering the flash at $99 and a free 4gb memory card (which is what they were offering on the SLK at the time - note the flash offer was an Olympus offer anyway).

    Many are still selling the 17mm lens for around the $550 AUD mark.

    Great deal.
