I'm wondering if I should have a look at this and buy just the body or blow it off and stick with the kit lenses for either the Oly M10 II or the Pany GX80?

I'll eventually get a budget tele and a quick prime.

There's also an offer with the mk1 M5 and twin lenses for £535 on Amazon too....decisions decisions.

I'm in the same boat as you on this one, torn between the Olympus ant the Panasonic but veering towards the OM10ii because of features and viewfinder, although I prefer the Panasonic grip.
GX80 body is only £247 after cashback at Jessops but the Amex offer brings it down to £197 or £299 with the 12-32 lens after both discounts .
OM D 10 body is £354 but only £374 with the 14-42 kit lens - total £324 after Amex cashback so not much in it.
Do I buy the Olympus, flog the kit lens and replace it with this one??
Too much to think about. :(

FYI, there's a deal on here for the body only for £239- it's just getting cheaper and cheaper! I don't use Amex so those Jessops deals never work for me.
For the money, you can't fault the Pany - so I think that's made my mind up. Just trying to decide if I go for the body only and see about picking up a cheap, used Olympus kit lens - the extra reach would be handy for me, or buy this one?

FWIW, I went for the OM10 ii with the 14-42 for £324 including the Olympus Amex cash back from Jessops. Then bought a Panny 45-150 mega OIS separately from Jessops for £119 (after Amex cash back) Total £443 for the Camera and 2 lenses so quite pleased with that.
