    what a ridiculous deal! lol, you're pretty much getting either a free lens or body depending on the way you look at.

    I did a search on the site, looks to be back ordered. They're probably retaining stock for in-store.

    You could easily get around $100+ for the body, giving you the lens for $100...

    I'd get it except I just won an ebay auction for a used somewhat beat up GF3 + 14mm for $150.

    Backordered already. But I couldn't resist I bought it anyway!! So, I'm making a pretty good run at it here. So far, here's how I started in m4/3s:

    Olympus PM2: $400
    Oly 14-42mm: $25 new in kit
    Oly 40-150mm: $100 from Olympus.com
    Panny 14mm: $100 after I sell the GF3 to someone for $100
    Panny 20mm: $322 using Panasonic friend's discount

    All new and under $1000. Now to buy lens cases, bags, hoods, filters, 45mm f1.8....

    I sent an email to Samy's and this is the response from them.

    I don't know what they are going to do if you submit an order online.

    at 10:05 am, the Pasadena store only has 1 white one left, with no charger. I'm surprised the kits didn't come w/ body cap + rear lens cap, how am I s'pose to get rid of the lens w/o them? :confused::tongue:

    Amazon too -- I usually order them when I get an adapter. They do come in hand for kits like this though.

    I just ordered one of these kits by phone. They had the red GF3 in stock, no other colors available. No problem, my E-PL2 is red.

    I was just about to buy one of these lenses for $150-170 on ebay. I'll happily take a spare body for less than $50.
