Good news :)

But is it cheaper as a dual kits.

In my case, I bought the original (single lens kit with the promo items) and I added a 40-150mm...price wise worked out to be around the same as the above quoted.

Does the dual kits comes with the promo gifts?

The 40-150mm is a good quality lens and is very under-rated.

Why sell it at those silly prices when one can keep it?

I have found that it makes for a very lightweight walk-around telezoom lens and even portraiture looks great. Will keep it even if I get the 50-200mm F2.8.

Actually, i am also keeping a lookout for the 40-150mm, but i am not in a hurry to get it at the moment, as i am waiting for the 18-180mm, wanted to compare the 2 first before making my decision on which to get. Hopefully, both are good walk-around lense, but 40-150mm is abit restrictive on the wide side, making the 18-180mm more desirable. That being said, it is assuming that the image quality of the 18-180mm is similar to the 40-150mm. Keeping my fingers crossed here.

I got my E500 with the 14-45 kit lens at $1360 together with the promo items like the 1GB card, dry cabinet, camera bag and some workshop. The 40-150 is selling at $430. So it comes out to be about the same.

Wondering if the dual kit lens come with the promo items.

It comes out to be about the same if you compare to the RCP of $1799.

The dual kit lens will be more value-for-$$ when you get it from the recommended shops like AP which will be much lesser than RCP. Perhaps at $1.6k?

You should have the dry cabinet also and Adobe Elements 2.0.

Not that the Adobe Elements is worth anything, but i believe you should get the dry cabinet, else it isnt really a bargain. The cabinet alone sells for about $100 or so in the BNS section already.

Nevertheless, you have a good system for you. covering the range of 14 - 150mm. Picture quality is above average.. SHOOT MORE! You might want to consider adding a flash to your setup ^_^ hehe..
