Hmmm. Why is the refurb 40-150 149 bucks and a new one is 119?

I mostly just carry the 20mm and 14mm with me when out and about; however many times would like a little more range. I hardly ever find myself using the 45-200.

Is there a good mid-range zoom out there I should be considering? Or is the kit lens the best I can get without breaking the bank?

I suppose I could also consider the 4/3 lenses if I end up getting the e-m1 (but I am still debating between the e-m1 and e-m5), but I am not sure how bulky/fast they are.

Thanks!
I have grown really fond of my 4/3 14-54mm MK II f2.8-3.5 as a walk around lens. It is fairly big but short of the new 12-40mm f2.8 or lumix 12-35mm f2.8 there isn't much else that is better than the kit lenses.

The 40-150 is regularly priced higher. It's on sale right now. If you want one, I'd go ahead and get a new one with full garantee at $119. Next week, $149 may be cheaper.

Yeah, I am glad I checked the olympus site today.

Checked it too late to get the body only refurbished M5 (i wanted the black).

But I did pick up the EM5 kit with 14-42 lens for $600 (did not need the lens but might as well sell my old 14-42 along with the EPL3). And still quite a deal.

I am definitely quite happy with it and am excited to try it out!

Very nice. I think you'll be happy with the decision, and you can already see some of the examples of what the em5 can do by some users in this forum. It is a great rugged little camera and has served me well on many of my trips.
You can even sell the 14-42 and put it toward whatever lens you want.

A quick question to Em-1 users. Are any of you shooting in raw yet or do you still not have the plugins?
