Hang around this forum and we'll help you get over that.Thanks. I'm sure I'm going to love it--I just go through this worry and indecisiveness any time I buy anything. Like right now, I'm fretting over whether it was a giant mistake to go for the silver one instead of black, haha.
Strangely enough, a bunch of new stuff showed up as "Limited quantities available" (12-40mm, 60mm, 12mm), but as soon as you click on Add to Cart it shows out of stock. And now they're throwing 404 errors on those pages. I wonder how many were actually available?Of course, nothing good is in stock and once they are done with the promotion, everything will suddenly become available
I just saw someone on dpreview that claims to have purchased the 60mm today. Lucky him.Strangely enough, a bunch of new stuff showed up as "Limited quantities available" (12-40mm, 60mm, 12mm), but as soon as you click on Add to Cart it shows out of stock.

Thanks for the advice. After missing out yesterday, I set everything up and snagged an ep5 kit that I had missed out on the day before.For those not that experienced with these periodic sales of refurbished goods directly from the Olympus store, heads up: The good stuff always runs out quickly and he/she who hesitates is lost. Don't waste your time posting here asking "Is this a good deal?" To those who complain that the item they wanted sold out while they were in the checkout process, well, that's the way it goes. You were too late, even if only by a minute or so. Better luck next time.
So here's the solution: Even if you miss out now, determine what camera, lens or accesory you are looking for. These 20% off sales pop up at least every season. The next time it happens, order the item you want immediately. I mean immediately. Just do it because you already know what you want and about how much it should cost because you saw the price in an earlier sale. Then post here to make sure your fellow mu-43 members know about the sale.
Finally, establish a PayPal account. Notice there are more than a few people complaining that the camera or lens they were in the process of ordering was sold out while they were busy typing in their name, address and credit card number. With PayPal, it's two clicks and you're done. Fret not, this sale will be repeated in the fall - if not before then.
Thanks for this. I have been looking for the 14-150mm for a few days to go with my new E-PM2. Just ordered the E-PL1 with the 14-150mm. Now should I keep the E-PL1 or sell it?Perhaps this is a good way to get a 14-150mm lens.
