    That's an amazing price. About $100 for a two year warranty.

    $837 total with tax for the Olympus 25mm F1.2. I would be so tempted if it didn't charge tax. :/

    Lucky for me, I have all of those already. I even got a brand new 25mm for $799.

    Where did you buy the 25 for 799? I want to find a used one for $750.

    It's a snow day here in eastern Massachusetts - so I have little to distract me from the on-sale E-M1 II. :rolleyes-38: I'm going to try to wait for the E-M5 III before making such a decision.

    It’s very tempting to pick up a second E-M1 II and sell my E-M5 II at this price. I’m going to try to behave myself...

    I was just noticing last night that they had a bunch of cheap 25mm and 45mm f1.8's. I guess those went quick. I would have picked up another 25mm f1.8 for $170 if they still had 'em.

    I'm just glad I know I want to stay with Panasonic lenses (at least for now), I'm looking at the G9, G85, & GX9. So it's a nice sale but I'm not really tempted as much as I know the mkII and 12-100 is a great combo.

    I figured I would share and help other spend their money. :D

    I think the new lens bundles are a pretty good deal with this discount. 14-150mm II + 17mm f1.8 bundle would be $594 and 75mm f1.8 + 45mm f1.8 bundle would be $765. Basically low end used lens prices if you were already planning to buy the lens pairs.

    $765 for the 75/45 is a good deal. Used 75's tend to go for $500, and used 45's around $200. There's only a $65 difference to the sale price, but you get the lens hoods for both lenses if I'm not mistaken.

    Well, not to mention they are brand new.... :) 

    I think they come with spiffy padded lens pouches, too.

    Those lens pouches aren’t as padded as you may think. They’re a cylinder of rigid plastic with a small amount of padding and microfiber lining in the inside. Also, the ones they provide are sized very poorly for the lenses.

    If the lens is a snug fit inside, then they’re very nice. But if there’s a lot of free space in there, then the lens will bounce around and not have a ton of padding.

    Just checked and the code does not apply to the lens combos. Good thing because now I am only tempted by the E-M1 mkII but Ian will buy the last one before me and I can continue to stick with my "no camera related purchases for 6 months" plan.

    The only things that are in stock now at the refurb sale are the EM1 mk II, the 12-40, and the 40-150 lenses. Everything else is sold out.

    The 40-150 is very tempting to me right now!

    Think carefully - I have one, and it's the lens I use the least, especially at this time of year. Perhaps you have more of a need than I do if you follow sports, and nature, but I was surprised at how rarely I take it out with me. On the other hand, my 12-100 and 7-14 are always with me.
