    They're offering $200 off the 45-150 if you buy the two together. Which should come to about $439 for the whole kit, the best price I've seen.

    You can also get the 45-175 for $209, but it is showing a 1-2 month wait:

    Or if you prefer the 45-200, there are some Amazon Warehouse Deals copies for sale for $166: Amazon.com: Buying Choices: Panasonic 45-200mm f/4.0-5.6 Lumix G Vario MEGA OIS Zoom Micro Four Thirds Lens for Panasonic and Olympus Micro Four Thirds Cameras

    Isn't this G5 + 45-150 deal basically the same deal that they had 2 months ago and subsequently cancelled people's orders because of 'price mistake'? So they decided to finally do it for real this time?

    Thanks for the heads up on this deal. Finally took the plunge into m43 with this deal and ordered the kit and the 45-150 (though the kit is now backordered with estimated delivery of 7/11 - 7/31). Looking forward to upgrading from my Nikon D40!

    Does anyone know if this is the new sharper 14-42 that is included?
    Thanks.

    Probably not, I think that only started shipping with the G6 and GF6. Which means we should be able to get it second hand for cheap in a few months.

    The new lens takes a 46mm filter, the old one is a 52mm.
