You get the twin lens 17mm + 14-42mm + Viewfinder + Flash for £759 @Jessops (+ 8% Topcashback). The camera without a flash is less useful.

Just checked and you get the flash from amazon as well. OP should mention it to avoid confusion.

I'd buy one over any DSLR, if it wasn't so expensive. Hope they'll come down with price soon.
I love these, its the first time for years Olympus have released a product with that special something that just makes you want to buy it. Its unfortunately well out of my price range....... doesn't stop me wanting one though!
its in the description
"Art Filters,Multi-exposure,Wireless flash,Multi-aspect"

That's different. That just indicates it has the ability to control a flash gun wirelessly, if you had a separate flash gun.

For example, the latest full frame Sony Alpha 850 is listed with wireless flash capability but it doesn't have built-in flash, no full frame DSLR does, nor does it come in any kit form that has a flash gun included.
Dont be a tourist !
For about the same money, I'd rather have the Panasonic GF1 (which is also a micro four-thirds camera).
The E-P2 has been announced, I'd expect the E-P1 to get cheaper.
I have the EP1 twin kit lens setup - and also own the GF1.

The viewfinder is just a piece of glass - it's not an EVF. So its kind of pointless really.

The GF1 gets used 80% of the time because of the inbuilt flash and faster autofocus. But the EP1 has image stablisation which is useful for macro work.

All in all, I would get the GF1 or wait and see if EP2 is better.
