    Ooooh, snap. I want a 35mm 2.8, don't care about the EVF, should I dump my G5 and get this?

    I guess the used one I'm getting ready to sell just dropped AGAIN in price. Jeez......a guy just can't win.

    I don't know the G5, but I love my E-P3 and 17mm/2.8. You can do a lot of photography with that kit. I'm half-tempted to get another one at this price!

    Maybe? It's a sure thing!

    Regarding the E-P3 deal, does this offer value the body only like at $100?

    Since they have the refurbished 17mm 2.8 at $239 - I guess the body is valued at about $17.

    Also, already out of stock.

    Ordered one this morning when it was in stock. Though I really don't need it, for that kind of money I'll throw it in the glove box for those days when I need something better than my cell phone.
    Thanks OP

    And what a deal ...

    I was thinking of passing on the P3 since I have already collected/own too many Pen cameras ... P2, PM1, PL3, PM2. I was waiting for a price drop on the P5. But ... discounting the 17mm f2.8 at $200 and you are getting the P3 for about $60. Mine arrives tomorrow.

    But I'm hopeless. I reconcile myself to the inevitable: Someday I'll also own the P5 and the EM-1.

    I hesitated too long, and missed it, dang.
