    Since the E-M5 was stolen, and I currently have a friend visiting Japan for a week (Kyoto right now, will be attempting to locate an E-M1/12-40 kit), and have a colleague going to NYC early next week, I figured one of those two options has a good chance of locating an E-M1 with 12-40 kit on my behalf.

    Unfortunately, I'm having little to no luck.

    Any tips?

    If I remember correctly, Olympus has global language options in the menu even for cameras sold in Japan. I think it's Panasonic that locks down the cameras for the Japanese market.
