    My new M43 kit arrived today. What superb service from BHPhoto. I ordered it on the 4th (tues) and it arrived at my home in KL, Malaysia, this morning. 4days from order to receipt. Brilliant.

    So I bought the black OM-D with the 12-50mm kit lens. I added the Oly 40-150mm for inky $99. It was a special package price from BHPhoto. Also added the Panasonic Leica 25mm f1.4. Prices from BHPhoto were the best I could find, globally.


    I've order the Oly 12mm and Oly 45mm from Honk Kong. Got a good online deal through ebay for $1030 for both. They've not arrived yet.

    To keep all this kit secure as we vacation through Asia I bought the Pelican 1200 from BHPhoto. It was a guess at the time but the kit will fit perfectly and the pelican case will then fit easily in a backpack.

    I'm so pleased. Now I have a high quality travel kit with zooms and primes and it all fits in a small waterproof, solid case that will easily go in a normal backpack.

    Did you get some fill foam for that case? Can't imagine you'd want all that stuff banging around in there!

    Pelican

    I use the Pelican case for my E-M5.

    I have the 9-18, 12-50, 45mm, 20mm, 14mm, 40-150 AND the OMD in that case with Lens hoods!

    It's perfect for the way I use it, traveling with me to work and back everyday in the back of my Miata :smile:

    Enjoy, great combinations!
