Re: Not much to do here, either. I wanted the kit out of the chute!

Or Portland, Oregon, where I live. I'm peeved as well. Was really looking forward to getting the kit for $2,200 right out of the chute.

As I recall, when I bought the E-1 in Feb 2004, the camera had been around for about 4 months or so.

In early 2004, there was a "special offer" whereby purchasing the E-1 body for $1500, one could get the 14-54mm for a discounted $500 or so, "for a limited time".  And that's what I did, and I think the store was Pro Photo Supply.

BTW I still have both E-1 and 14-54mm.  I hope the latter will work with the E-M1.  If it's at least as good as the E-1 (not the greatest challenge I presume), I'd be happy about it.

This little bit of history suggests a "kit" offer will likely be forthcoming early next year.  It may sooner, need to keep an ear to the ground to catch the opportunity.
