Are there any particularly great sales on older models anyone knows of at the moment?

I have not yet stepped into the world of M43 photography but have been keen for a very long time.

You can find E-PL1 kits for $270 at Amazon, and refurbished E-PL1 kits for $250 at Cameta. Or Cameta has a refurbished E-PM1 kit for $300. I might lean towards the E-PM1, which the newer generation, which means much faster focusing due to a combination of improved electronics and a revised kit lens.

If you have any interest in shooting at a distance, or with remote triggers, the E-PL1 does not support the wired shutter release. On the other hand, the E-PM1 includes a clip-on flash instead of a pop-up flash like the E-PL1 did, so it is a little less convenient.
