    Great deal, especially on Elite edition.
    I wonder if my EM1 will be same price after a year...

    As someone who tends to stay a generation or two behind the "cutting edge", I sure hope to see a similar pattern in E-M1 prices at some point. I expect it to occur a couple of months after the E-M1 ii (or whatever the next "flagship" is called) is released.

    There are so many m43rds bodies, I truthfully don't know one from the other yet!

    Yeah, I agree that the breadth of options can be overwhelming. There have been 36 Micro Four Thirds bodies released to date (not counting the LX100 which has a 4/3 sensor) and we may reach 40 by the end of the year.

    I've created a spreadsheet to try to keep track of the feature differences among all of the bodies in system. You can check it out here.

    It's good that this site mainly focuses on micro 4/3 bodies. If you factor in the other mirrorless bodies like SONY, FUJI, SAMSUNG, NIKON, and CANON, you will even be more confused. I was tempted to look at the other mirrorless bodies but I think I am sticking to the micro 4/3 for my need.

    It's a good price. In fact I think it's worth it for the IBIS alone. I found with the 5 axis IBIS, I could shoot at slower shutter speeds below 1/10th. With the E-M10 3 axis IBIS, I found 1/10th was the lowest I could go handheld.

    I was going to buy a E-1, but instead I took advantage of this deal at B&H. Unfortunately I have to pay NYC sales tax, so paid $544. I may buy a E-1 as a second body when a new E-1MII comes out

    Good choice! The E-M5 is a great camera.

    Staying one generation back is a great way to save a ton of money without sacrificing much at all. You get to use all the same cameras, just a year or two after the early adopters! :)

    No wireless for this right? I really want wireless as a feature but this might be too good to pay up.

    Correct. The E-M5 lacks WiFi capability, although you can use Eyefi or Toshiba Flashair SD cards to transfer images wirelessly, although these don't allow any control functionality.
