Travel weight was a major factor in my selecting m43, the EM10 and specific lenses. I spent less than expected this year, so I was considering the O12-40 f2.8 as a non-travel lens. Checked the online price this afternoon, then went to the local mall and found the same, 30k baht (I live in Thailand) or ~$925. Ouch, but doable. Knowing that major Thai photo retailers slashed prices before on discontinued models, I asked about the price for the EM5 & f2.8 kit. My jaw dropped. OMG. ARE YOU KIDDDING ME! Was this the price for a demo body and lens? No Sir, 38k baht (~$1175) is the price for new-in-box with worldwide warranty. It took me a few minutes to calm down and realize I could get an EM5 body for ~$250 that was ~$800 on Adorama. I didn't need it, but of course I said yes. Actually I said 'Who hoo!". Can't believe I'm kinda looking forward to the rainy season for the photo ops.
