Weird. No body or lens caps?

Well, you can get 3rd party ones from the ebay for less than $8 USD, but it sounds like a strange cost cutting method- as those plastic caps can't be that much (and I'd assume they have tons of them laying around at Panasonic, since they've always supplied them). The bag I can see not including... but the caps is weird.

Even the cheap kit lenses used to be supplied with lens caps and a soft pouch.

The X lens is supposed to be positioned as a higher end line but apparently not enough to stop Panny penny pinching at least on the kits with cheaper body.

Now I have to hunt around that auction site for third party body and lens caps. It doesn't leave you with that contented feeling a new purchase should.
