Just a quick update:

There's a Pana 14-45 in the mail and tomorrow I'm going to take a good look at a used E-PL3. The pl2 I was hunting seems to have evaporated.

With a bit of luck she can take her first shot by the middle of next week.

Cameta Camera should have some E-pl2 bodies.


Since the US introduced a new law banning the transport of lithium batteries in ordinary planes, shipping costs from the US have skyrocketed making any good deal way less interesting, once you add custom fees and VAT. The shipping costs used to be about 48$ they now cost twice as much. Ihave been talking about that with Kenmore camera. The problem doesn't exist if you purchase only a lens.

If I look at Cameta:

PL2 body + 40-150: shipping $ 70

PL2 body only: shipping $ 57

40-150 only: shipping $ 53

This doesn't seem to follow your 'logic'. I would have expected the first 2 options to be quite a bit more expensive, if this law is indeed in force.
