    Finally sprang for the much-vaunted Oly 45mm 1.8 thanks to the alert on this forum re: the Olympus deal on refurbished lenses last week. Spent the last few days shooting with the new lens on my E-P1, and with the Oly 17mm 2.8. I've rediscovered how great it is to shoot with the E-P1, and it feels really good to handle with either lens and the Flipback grip.

    The Olympus online store had refurbished 45s for sale last week for $319. Just checked now, looks like they are no longer in stock.

    I wonder why we rarely see Panasonic refurbished items :confused:

    LOL! Actually, the 45mm lens was "reconditioned", so could have been a return. I bought my first:43:, the E-P1, reconditioned as well from Olympus and have had no problems.
