According to the kit will cost 80,000 yen. That’s exactly $891,216 but consider that prices in US will be much lower.

  • Wow, really nice, I hope we get this kit in Sweden to :)

    Hope the price will be lower in the US; competition is here, with NEX-3 + pancake @ $549 and NEX-5 + pancake @ $649.

    Olympus’s eq.35 mm is much more useful as an all-around than Sony’s eq.24 mm but still…

    A response to Sony, but nevertheless good news. I hope they make more kits, with other lenses.

    Unfortunately, E-PL1 will never be bundled with Panasonic 20mm F1.7.

    Fortunately, Olympus is coming out with their own 20mm f1.7 seeing its such a popular lens.

  • That’s great, I’ll need the optical viewfinder, otherwise I’ll constantly move the camera to my eyes mechanically, since have done that since the SLR days.
    The 17mm f/2.8 & VF-1 makes a nice bundle, but the Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 seems a brighter performer.

    If this was for the EP1 and instead of the 17mm they were offering the rumored 12mm 2.5 with an optical viewfinder I’d probably get it. And oh yeah, if they also added the diorama and cross process filters to the EP1. :-) That would be my perfect camera. I’ll probably end up getting the Nex just because that 16mm pancake is the perfect lens for 90% of my shooting- but I really prefer the EP1.

    $891,216? You might want to double check the currency exchange rates.
