Don't worry, if the past is any indication, it will come back around at Adorama...shortly after I picked up the 2 lens package, the price shot up to $998, and came back down a week or two later. Just be patient and you'll surely get the good deal from them again!As discussed in posts 13-16, this deal is no longer active. People are just posting alternative ones now.
You were right, I found a bit better deal actually (for me). Right now you can get the same setup (G5 + 14-42 old kit + 45-150) at amazon for $498. No GC involved. Click on the "special offers" box for promotion to get 45-150 for $200 off if you buy the G5 kit. Right now it's $198, so it's free with the $498 camera.I've seen a similar deal pop up over the past few months, so if you wait one might pop up again.

I wish they had the G5X kit at amazon too (14-42 PZ instead), or at least have the new 14-42 kit lens already
There are so many cheap gf3/gf5 deals right now, that I am toying with buying one of those with pz, swapping lenses betwen kits, then selling the GF with the no PZ kit zoom. But I'm not *totally* sure I want the PZ .. the other half of me wants to see what the G6 is, and how good the new kit zoom is, before going too far. I'm guessing new kit zoom iss better than the PZ, and not much bigger.I suppose you could always sell the 14-42 for around $100 and use the cash to buy a PZ version.
