Buy a great lens, get a camera free

I noticed this deal from Adorama. You can get a Panasonic GF3 with the 14mm f2.5 lens for $279.00. The GF3 is no slouch, though not as good as the newest Olympus E-PM2 that I use. The 14mm lens, though, is the real star of the deal. The lens by itself runs at over $300. That means that you can buy the lens at an extra good price and get a great camera for free.

The Panasonic Lumix 14mm f2.5 is one of my favorite micro 4/3 lenses and I use it often. The image quality is very good, not quite as good as the Lumix 20mm f1.7 or the magical Panasonic Leica 25mm f1.4, but if you like the wide 28mm view, it is a wonderful lens to have. The nice thing about this uber compact lens is that you can also attach several different lens adapters to it. I have the wide-angle adapter that I use frequently.

These types of deals typically last a very short time and the price will be back to normal, quickly. So if you want it, jump on it fast.

Note: The 14mm on a micro 4/3 system is equivalent to 28mm in the standard 35mm format. The wide-angle makes it a 22mm equivalent.

  1. I was thinking of getting the PM-2. I have the lens, actually, but my PL-1 is slow and this seems like a nice opportunity. But how many of the same lens does one need? Hmm. Decisions, decisions, always decisions. Thanks for the tip!!

    1. I need to do a review on the E-PM2, one of many posts I need to write. I’ve been quite happy with it overall. Well, I’m sure on of a particular lens is enough, in most cases.
