    I looked at Cameta and B&H for refurb EPM1. Cameta was $299 and B&H was $329. But B&H had a used VF2 that I also wanted.

    I ordered the camera from Cameta on Tuesday, and the VF2 from B&H early on Wednesday.

    I got the VF2 from B&H yesterday, and Cameta has a delivery date of the 29th

    I should have paid the extra money, or I should have asked B&H to match the Cameta pricing :(

    The good thing with Cameta is the full 1 year warranty on refurbs. The bad thing with Cameta is their SLOW shipping.

    Good point on the warranty. Hadn't thought through that. That does make the wait worth it.

    I just ordered the E-PM1 refurbed kit and VF-2 from Cameta (via eBay) over the weekend. Hopefully they will arrive on time.

    I most likely will sell the E-PM1 kit lens with my E-P1, which I purchased new (body only) from the Best Buy deal a few months ago. I'm hoping to recoup some of the funds so I can get a 14mm pancake lens to go with my manual lenses - the main reason why I decided to upgrade to E-PM1 and VF-2 combo.

    BTW, this is my first post here; I just joined last night. Great forum with lots of traffic and good info. Stayed up way too late last night just so I could catch up on all the threads on E-PM1. It was well worth it! :)

    I had myself convinced to get an epl1 until this epm1 deal popped up. It became something of a no-brainer for me. Shipping took some time, but the warranty was worth it.

    I've bought many refurb kits from Cameta over the last 6 months and NONE of them have been a problem. I'd say an average of 300-400 shutter actuations per body. Only problem with the E-PM1/E-PL1 in low light (long exposures) is that the shutter can sound like it's dying a loud, slow death. The files come out ok though.
