Back! Panasonic DMC-G5KK 16MP Compact System Camera w/ 14-42mm Lens + 45-150mm Lens $498 + Free Shipping
I just bought from Amazon instead of Adorama since the Adorama deal meant I would've needed to spend an additional $100 (though I would get it back in an Adorama gift card)

Panasonic DMC-G5KK 16 MP Compact System Camera with 14-42mm Zoom Lens and 3-Inch LCD (Black) $498

Scroll just a little ways down and you'll see:
"Purchase This Camera and Get $200 Off the Panasonic G-Series 45-150mm Lens"
Click on "Learn More"

You'll be able to add this 45-200mm lens for $197
Panasonic H-FS45150K Lumix G Series Lens (Black)
- Ultra compact, light weight, 45-150(90-300mm) telephoto zoom lens

This combination offer valid through April 27, 2013

I've been debating getting a micro-4/3 camera or a bigger DSLR (Canon T3i or T4i) but at this price, I think I'll just buy this.

Looks like I get a lot of the features of the Olympus OM-D at half the cost.

Things I like about this Panasonic DMC-G5:
- articulating 920k dots touch screen LCD
- electronic view finder (with the auto-sensor that switches between EVF and screen)
- full HD video
- sensor is a big step up from my point-and-shoot

I was tempted to hold out for the OM-D's weather resistance too but I think I'll save that money and pick up another lens instead.
