Sorry to have further confused anyone regarding price. I copied and pasted what I had read which was the pricing for the new lenses only

I thought it was self explanatory that I was reading the prices for just the lenses.

The correct price for the E-PL1 with 14-42mm lens is $599.00 which is still a heck of a deal in comparison to the E-P1/E-P2.

Interesting.....

In Japan, they are offering a twin lens E-PL1 kit, camera with the 14-42mm & the 14-150mm lens for around $1100 USD, as an initial price. This will come down quickly of course.

I'm not so sure I can agree with you.

I think the price will drop only if the E-PL1 or the 14-150mm lens (or both) are lousy performers, which is highly doubtful. Remember, the 14 - 150mm lens lists at 599 USD. So, the 2 lens kit @ 1100 USD is 100bucks below list.

I gotta tell ya, my gut is telling me that the E-PL1 is going to be flying off the shelves. .... And, when the 14-150mm is officially released, it too will fly off the shelves- unless it's really bad.

Imagine having a 10X lens on a body like the E-PL1.

I like that hear that we are all thinking the same way about these new oly announcements. It will be a heck of a great travel camera. I would have to add the oly 35mm macro and 4/3 adapter to my kit though

Yes, that's the best way to get a cheap and yet very good macro lens for the m4/3. I've spent a lot of money already buying those vintage macro lenses, which are good but unless you have a tripod, forget about MF accurately (specially with the EP1). The 35mm is a great lens for the price (even adding the cost of the adapter - BTW, the Pana adapter is about $60 cheaper than the Oly).

Yes, that was the one I was pricing, the price of the lens and adapter is around 270, none of the macro lens for my canon would be that cheap with true 1:1

I missed a 35mm on eBay for $149 with a BiN. When I decided to pull the trigger, it was too late.
