    Hi all,

    Just wondering if anyone has seen any information on the availability of the new E-Pl2 kit zoom being sold separately? Just sold the original version from my E-P1 kit (wasn't using it much after getting the Panny 20).

    The new one seems to have some very useful improvements in weight, focusing speed, silence and general design (the old one seemed a bit fragile, especially with the rotating tip).

    Good point. Sometimes the flip side is that, if you only want the lens from a kit, buying it and selling the body can often net a good price. Several people posted about doing this to get the Panny 20mm when it came out. Will be interesting to see how long it takes for Oly to offer the Epl2 and lens separately.

    Buying a kit lens with a body is definitely the way to go.
