    I'm tempted to buy the 40-150 since I missed the $99 sale.

    Those EPM2 kit deal is awesome! EPM2 with 14-42 is now cheaper than the body alone! I wish they'd drop the price on body only as well. And the EPL5 too.

    For me the 40-150 is a no brainer since I didn't have any lenses longer than 45mm. But I wished I had seen the $99 sale. :frown:

    I feel for 'ya. I bought a 45mm just three weeks before the sale.

    I just might get one despite having an EM-5. For me, the evf is a requirement and will come in handy for any possible future Pen I might get, should I decide to get a body based on size. The evf is a product that prevented me from getting a smaller pen body before sale prices because it drove the overall cost into EM-5 territory.

    My 40-150R arrive last night. I've taken my test shots this morning and I can confirm what others have said about this lens. It's small, light, actually built well, and the PQ is really good when you consider it's price point. :smile:

    Thanks, I just ordered one too. My add-on OVF (Ricoh GRD) works great for wide angle stuff, but it's nice to have an EVF for telephoto work.

    Anyone know if this applies to the new black lenses?

    Yes, but only at the Oly site. You can pre-order.

    Excellent, thanks. Didn't think of the Oly site.

    Update: Except for this disclaimer...
    Please note: Only the Silver version of the M.45mm lens qualifies for the $50 savings.

    Hmm, then the email Oly sent me this morning was very misleading. I posted a message with link to it earlier today. Don't remember exact thread name, but I guess it doesn't matter.
