    Well, if these prices are correct, then the zoom lens is not SO expensive (this said not knowing anything of the quality it has) but the body, tjaah, maybe a little bit more I thought it would be. Anyway combo with the constant aperture zoom seems tempting...

    sounds plausible... though the inclusion of the body cap lens with the body only package seems curious

    Guess I won't be in the market for these any time soon, like a few years!

    Very competitive - with a Nikon D600 indeed!

    But more seriously: I think the price for the body is crazy. Completely out of range.

    I will be all over that lens for $900.

    used 12-35mm will take a hit.

    Oh the demise.....

    Don't worry...2.5 years when e-m2 is released with 21mp 12fps body, m1 will sell for $500 used.:thumbup:

    It is great to see it will be competitive. That will be good for the format.

    That seems about right relative to the recently released E-P5.
