no that's a kit that comes with just the 14-42mm for $410.

To get the price deal you need to select the two lens kit in black, silver or white and then it will be $349 which is a great deal while it lasts.

It is a very good deal if some one is just getting into the M43 system. Even has the touch screen on it.

It would be a definite upgrade over my EPL2, but like ramcewan I think that if I get anything below about EM5/GX7 I'll end up regretting it (barring a ridiculous bargain/unexpected need for replacement). I think I'm about done with plug-on viewfinders.

That can be a problem too. I accidentally knocked my VF2 off the hot shoe a couple of times and luckily I saw it and did not lose it. I think Bob had the same problem a few times.

The 75-300 is 499. I'm tempted.

$199, good price if you're looking at this lens.

I guess that they are all the same exact lens from the exact same factory, just with different names on the label.

Yes, you are correct. The Samyang company sells the same lens under Samyang, Rokinon, and Bower labels.
