Default Panasonic G5 in the front yard

I decided on a G5 when the prices became very attractive last week, just $498 for the 2-lens kit (I know others got even better deals, so I'm glad for them.) Here are a couple shots that I took yesterday.

Today, I am going to a school musical and will try out the camera. I think the Olympus 45/1.8 might be wbest, as I don't have any fast zoom lenses. The Panasonic 45/150 and 18/55 will come along, in case my location is not optimal for the Olympus, or if the lighting allows slower zooms.

Where did you get a G5 camera kit for $498??? The lowest I can find is $599 + tax at Costco - still a good deal, but I can always use $100 towards lenses...

That's what they sold for @ a month ago at Amazon and I think the body with 14-42 was a whole lot less. Like $350 ? I almost bought one just because of the price.

Panasonic prices go high/low all the time during the cycle. If you like Panasonic, just watch the prices. The 45-200 lenses were going for @$99.

ok, thanks for the response. I looked again and can't find them at that price - guess I just missed the special. Maybe I'll just wait for the G6.
