Seriously, though, you may find some dealers un-bundling lenses from bodies.
I would imagine that at these events it's best to decline the alcohol and keep a clear head. Incidentally, who provides the best lunches - Olympus or Panasonic? Canon and Nikon would probably claim their lunches are best because they offer a full plate rather than just a quarter plate.
I wouldn't mind a cheap 14mm f2.5 off ebay myself and I'm sure some dealers will split bundles, it just seems a strange policy for Panasonic to have. At the moment I'm in the unexpected position of prefering Olympus MFT bodies but with Panasonic glass. I guess that means I get the best of both but I really would have expected Oly to take the lead in optics, given their pedigree.
