    Hello All,

    Ran into Staples in Mendon,Ma today. They had the EP-L1 as a kit for $499.

    Looks like it's even less if purchased online.

    The store manager said "I heard it was an awesome DSLR" that was the extent of his knowledge...

    Here's what's in the kit:

    Includes Stylish Camera Backpack, Additional Long Life Lithium Ion Battery, PEN Quickpro Tutorial DVD, Corel Imaging and Video Editing Bonus Software DVDs plus Passport to Savings for extra bonus offers on

    Here's the link:

    That's awesome. When you see them, post them.

    There are lots of folks concerned that Olympus isn't doing a great job getting the PEN series into retail outlets.

    That was the reason for my post...

    You found a great deal, I'm sure that would have been appreciated also. Don't hesitate to post if you think it'll be helpful.

    Cheers, Alan

    Gotta watch Staples from now on, especially for online special buys.

    The E-PL1 is currently $449.99, last month there was an additional $50 mail-in rebate.

    Early this week they had a Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 Zoom Lens for $109.99. I missed out on that one. Checked back again and the price was up to $159.99 - still a good deal. Then found a $30 dollar rebate on anything over $150 went to order but it was out of stock - no new stock expected. Dang!
