Lens / camera bundle delayed ....

The bodies should start shipping in October and the lens only in December. That means no kits right away. The late delivery date for the lenses is disappointing. I am definitely not interested in the E-M1, but I'd like to get a deal on a 12-40 lens from a kit that's taken apart. But as the lenses are not available for a long time people buying body only will get a body only and not a body from a kit. So there will be fewer "bulk" lenses available that are taken from kits. I guess I'll have to wait until some time in 2014 for my lens

Slowly learning to use the Olympus OM-D E-M5.

Olympus were aiming to have the camera / lens kits ready for the launch but that option is delayed. No word on when it will be available, but since they were thinking the kit option would be ready for the launch originally, I wouldn't think it can be that long off before they offer this combo.
