    Hmm I thought the seller (and their graphics) look familiar.

    I bought a 14-42mm X PZ lens from them last month. They didn't mention it was pulled from a kit and came with no rear-cap. They just wrapped the bare lens in bubble wrap and taped it shut. I'm a newb, but is that really a good practice to send it like that?

    Pretty standard grey market stuff. No warranty, buyer beware, etc.

    Yeah but the warranty is probably based in Taiwan which will be a pain. There was one seller out of the states who was selling then for $1100 with a US warranty

    Yeah I almost hopped on that one, it was out of Indiana.

    Ultimately I ended up purchasing from a local retailer. I didn't want to take the risk with such and expensive lens, especially considering they just were released. With a $400 lens such as the Olympus 45mm, I didn't have too many worries if something ended up not turning out wrong.

    My plan since they announced that lens was to wait until it hit that sub-$1000 mark. I agree that the early adopter market should be filled quickly since they are readily available now.

    I have the same plan for trying the E-M5. Wait for a good holiday deal for a $500-ish body only, then pick one up to try. I've lost too much early adopting in :43: already. The GX1 and most of my lenses are good enough to wait out initial prices now.
