Sometimes I seriousely doubt Olympus Marketing Â knows what they are doing. For unknown reasons inside the US (unlike in Germany) OlympusÂ has chosen not to sell an E-P1 kit which includes both the 14-42mm and the 17mm. I agree with Thom Hogan when he says the E-P1‘s success has more to do with the Olympus engineers than the marketing guys.
