    I really missed out with the "accidental" pricing of the E-PL5 last month and now they have added at least another $50 to the price that was quickly corrected late last month. Now it is considerably overpriced. Do they not want to sell any of them?

    The E-PL5 was on sale, officially, up until 12/24, for $100 off. That price was extended to 1/5/13. As of today, the price is only $50 off the list. The OM-D is now $100 off again.

    Technically is still on sale $649 from list $699 :wink:
    Epl5 has been on sale $100/off 2X since it's release-once for Black Friday and again for pre-christmas sale, which was then extended to Jan 5. I'm sure it will go on sale again in the not too distant future-maybe to coincide with the new product release announcement for the end of the month? or Presidents Day sales?

    Up north here, it can still be had for $550 + tax until Jan 10/13...

    If you're considering the 40-150mm, it's now $200 off with 1 lens kit, so $749 for the 2 lens kit is still pretty good.
