Exactly what happened to me. When I bought the EM-1 I thought about not buying the 12-40 but knew I would be sorry and eventually would. So I bought it with the body and saved $200.

Yep. Those things do happen! Sometimes fighting it is worse than just doing it anyway.

I bought the Voigtländer 42.5mm, when it was first released in July, and was raving about it to my girlfriend. We were planning a trip to Marseille for September and I kept jabbering on about wanting the 17.5mm. She said I should just buy it, it'll be a trip of a lifetime. You only live once! She was right. I bought one just before we left and couldn't be happier with it.
