Thanks for the heads-up Greg. There were only 4 when I checked this morning. Now there are 3. ;-)

I've got a fair amount of lenses now and more than cover the range. But it's hard to decide what to carry. Once the 7-14 comes out I can fit the 3 Pro lenses in the bag + a couple favorite pancake primes and be ready for anything. That's the thinking anyway.

....hmmmmmm! 12/13/14 0730 shows 1 left @ Murphy's via Amazon.

Makes one wonder about inventory count. @ Friday 1435 hrs, Amazon lists 7 new, IN STOCK DEC 15, 2014. ..... Did they run the inventory and expect new by 12/15/14?

I am waiting on Arlington Camera .... with my now new list of meds, neurologist, cardiologist, remote cardiac monitor, a few hospital bills, some doctor bills and some more med-tests ... hell, I ain't in a mood to photograph anything.

In 2006 I bought the 50-200 & 14-54 on the same order; at the time it was about the same 40-150 $$$$ so I do know the feeling (more than twice what I paid for the E-300 a few months earlier) Alan.

Yep, I remember paying $795 for the 12-60mm f2.8-4 in 2008 and $895 for the 50-200 SWD around the same time.

The E300 I bought was $400 through Olympus as a rufurb on eBay.

I may start divesting myself of a few lenses in the near future. Who am I kidding.....there are more than a couple I won't be using with the 12-40 and 40-150 f2.8's.

I am in the market for a 50-200... I just barely missed a couple non-SWDs at $350 on eBay... I had one offered at $275 but w/o the hood and tripod collar so I passed and someone else grabbed it before I had a chance to think twice... The market seems to be dropping on the 4/3 lenses, I have watched the Mk I 14-54 go under $100 and the Mk II for $200, the 12-60 and the 9-18 still command $300-350 but I saw a 9-18 go for $200 today
