Buying the EM-1 with the 14-42 as a combo
Nov 30, 2013

It may seem an odd combo, but I want to order an EM-1 with the 14-42II lens from my local store. For the EM-5 and all the other Olys this lens can be had as a kit for a $50 premium but on its own it's over $300. The fellow at the store said he could speak with the Olympus rep and see what he could do for me.

It's odd I suppose, me getting the cheapest kit lens for a top of the line camers, but the 12-40/2.8 will be out of my budget until later in the spring but I do own the 12-60. along with a good stable of FT glass which I intend to use on the EM-1 until such time but in the 14-42II I want a lightweight walkaround lens to tide me over and make the most of M43's size and weight advantages.

Has anyone successfully ordered an EM-1 with the 14-42, with a rep's help or not?

Cheers,

Jim
