Seems like a pretty good deal.

For those interested, you can pick up the M.Zuiko 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R lens for as little as $50 on eBay, which is the standard retail kit lens. By way of example only, here's one that even includes a U/V filter: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Olympus-M-Zuiko-14-42mm-f-3-5-5-6-II-R-Lens-For-Four-Thirds-w-UV-filter-/112... [ebay.com] (FYI: if you go the eBay route, make sure you're bidding on a "II" lens, not the original Olympus 14-42mm micro 4/3 kit zoom, which was designed for the earlier Evolt series.)

But if you can spring for a little more (and tolerate the lack of wider angle options) I highly recommend the outstanding M.Zuiko 40-150mm, which is a surprisingly good performer for a budget, plastic barreled zoom. https://smile.amazon.com/Olympus-40-150mm-F4-0-5-6-Panasonic-Cameras/dp/B005KJH8WO/ref=sr_1_19?ie=UT... [amazon.com] (Note: this particular lens seems to go on sale somewhere for $99 every few months, making it a true bargain in micro 4/3 optics).

Sorry, you are all over the place. You mention a 14-150mm is good on a budget (its a actually a $500+). Then you link a 40-150mm lens for $150. Lol

Sony A5000 would be a more comparable model.

Pretty sure the reference was intended to be for the 40-150mm lens, with the 14-150 being a typo (which, while not a bad lens, is not what I would consider a bargain given its quality - but really, the non $$$$ superzooms for any system are not great in price/quality). The 40-150, as noted, is a quite good telephoto zoom and is a good value at MSRP (and even better during those $99 sales - the last one of which is when I got my copy).

As for the 14-42, the Olympus II (or II-r, which is the newest variant) is a perfectly fine kit zoom with good quality, decent build and can be reliably be found in the $60-75 range.. But if you are willing to spend a few dollars more, my suggestion is to get the 2nd generation Panasonic 14-42 (the version with HD printed on the body/46mm filter, and not the craptastic 1st generation zoom) for ~ $80-100. I use it far more often on my E-M5 than I would have expected to use a kit zoom.

Hard to make a direct comparison between systems like this - my best try is to say that it compares in various ways to the 5000 and 6000 - the E-M5 is closer to being the 6000's competitor, but keep in mind the E-M10's EVF.
Like other Olympus bodies, the sensor is lower resolution than the Sony's, but has a better lens lineup outside of the ultra high end side of the market (looking at DXO comparisons for example, you can reasonably call it a wash re. image quality). This has Olympus' 3-Axis in-body stabilization - not as good as the 5-Axis system on the E-M1 and E-M5 (and E-M10 II), but as effective as the in-lens options available from Sony/Fuji etc. As far as controls/handling, I have a strong preference for Olympus over the Sony's that I have tried out (Nex 6/7, A5000/6000), though that is a personal preference that others may certainly have the exact opposite feeling about.

The Sony A6000 is much better camera than this Olympus. Most noticeably the Sony has a much faster continuous autofocus compare to the EM10 or even to its higher end sibbling EM5 and EM1

Yeah I was just messing with him. He gave good advice, but then he mistype. I'm pretty sure he meant 40-150mm lens since he mention giving up wider angle. Lol

cheap! paid way more for mine, and I am still enjoying it.

only thing I wish it did was reset certain settings on power on. e.g. if I set the auto timer for a shot and then put the camera away, when I turn it back on and try to take a picture, it is still in timer most and I miss the shot. ditto for settings like digital teleconverter (I use it for video) and exposure compensation.

I'm used to my old Canon cameras that would reset that stuff to default after the camera turned off.

Some people may or may not prefer continuous AF, but that should not be a major factor in determining that one camera is superior over another. Perhaps for straight out of the camera image quality, the A6000 wins, but that's probably a very minute thing that most casual users aren't going to nitpick about. Many people I know prefer the feel and ergonomics of the EM10 over the A6000. So either way, both are great bodies - the only time I'd push for one over the other is if it's significantly cheaper or if there's a great deal. It's all about your preferences. If there's a "you can't pass this up" deal on the A6000, then by all means go for it, and likewise for the EM10. This particular deal I would argue is an OK to good deal but I wouldn't classify it as hot. I would expect the pricing to continue dropping with possibly better details closer to Black Friday...but that's just me Smilie
