great camera, got mine just after Christmas with a bunch of accessories for just over £425 and it has been a trooper! things to note: not weather sealed, you can unlock the 30 minute video limit (see Reddit page), lenses can be found cheap at CEX, 4k but not cinematic 4k, and finally no high frame rate for crispy slow mo
if you need to know anything about the camera hmu
Surely it must be possible to buy the camera with just a single lens, even a 20mm lens is over £150. What use is a camera without a selection of lenses?

Of every use, to those invested in the M43 ecosystem with an existing body they are upgrading, maybe?

it is possible ofc to buy it with a lens
but if you already have lenses then why would you want the same lens again?

A lot of people like to buy body only, and then choose a better lens than a 'kit lens' or one that suits their use more. Or as other have said, may own or have access to suitable lens already. Lens sharing is a great way amongst friends, buy one lens each and swap around as required rather than everyone spending loads on a collection of glass.

Not for me, lens sharing may be useful to find out what lenses are useful, but lenses are delicate! People don't know how/whether to clean lenses. I'm afraid I wouldn't trust even a friend with my lenses. Especially when they cost a lot more than the price of the camera!

1. Read back what you've just written.

2. Then ask yourself why there are body-only options.

3. If in doubt, see point 1 and 2.

I don't know why I need to 'ask myself' anything, what I wrote is perfectly clear to me, I'm really not interested in whether anyone else understands it or not. I was talking about lens sharing FWIW

Right.

So how come you can't comprehend a body-only purchase? It's very common on most desirable cameras. No worries if not - but you'd hopefully grasp that the price with bundled lenses would be significantly higher.

Yes kit lenses are often good value for money. You will often find them on ebay because people like me by them when the camera + kit lens cost little more (and in rare cases even less) than the bare body.
This is a good deal, but bear in mind that panasonic often do summer cashback (and double cashback) deals which imo are well worth waiting for. But who knows??
£389 now
Bought one at the offer price, looks like an open box where the kit lens was removed, the body is brand new and registered okay wth Panasonic for the 5 year warranty.

I already have a G6 with several MFT lenses so this was a great deal for me.
