If the 12-32mm lens was sold as 'Lens Only' I might be tempted ...
In reply to ericN2, 7 months ago

I think Panasonic is missing out by marketing the GM-1 and 12-32mm lens only as kits in some markets. I think each product could have higher sales if sold separately and together.

Some of us might want to have:

  • The GM-1 body only, to use with a pancake prime
  • The 12-32mm lens only, to use with M4/3 cameras we already own
  • Both sold together, as a kit

Of course, the market will always find a solution, as people will buy kits then split them in order to generate savings for themselves. These savings could belong to Panasonic instead, if they had only sold the parts separately, alongside the kits.
