Found 25th Jun
The cheapest this combo has ever been for genuine UK stock (doesn't look like this body & lens combo are available from grey importers).

The added bonus of the free battery grip too, which has a £280 value.

I'll await the "cold because M43" comments now..

What is M43? A camera that's also a gun? Serious question

Micro four thirds - it refers to the sensor size. Generally can't recreate the shallow depth of field of bigger sensors, and not as good image quality in low light - but generally comes in a much smaller form factor, and more than capable for 95% of photographers.

Fair play to you. This combo will give infinitely better results with someone who knows how to use it, than some with FF who doesn't...
Great price, bought two for the kids at crimbo.

Only downside vs full frame is noise at high iso. Thats where full frame is untouchable.

Need to get them both the 7-14 2.8 & 40-150 2.8 also, or I'm getting social services on the phone whistle blowing you for being a cheapskate.

Micro Four Thirds certainly can produce images like portraits with wheelbarrow loads of creamy background bokeh, it just takes a little more application.

FF may now mean small mirrorless bodies but the lenses are still big, bulky and heavy compared to Micro Four Thirds. The nice thing is that photographers have a huge selection of gear and they can prioritise functionality over luggability and the cost in image quality is nowhere near as stark as it used to be. Many professionals now use Micro Four Thirds and other 'crop' sensor cameras, like APS-C.
