FYI, Oly instant rebates are on (at least on the Adorama and BH websites)

At least 3 Oly lenses (12-60, 50 macro, 70-300) have instant rebates.

Interestingly (and this might be a typo) at Adorama, if you buy the 70-300 by itself, the price is $299 discounted ($399 with $100 instant rebate). BUT, the Adorama kit for the 70-300 (which comes with a Tiffen UV filter and lens cleaner) is priced at $267! HOWEVER, and possibly better if you don't need a filter, at BH, the lens itself with the $100 rebate is $254.

Also, with the 50 macro, the instant rebate is $50 (for a final price of $449 for the lens). But if you buy the Adorama kit for the 50 macro, the price is $405!!

At BH, with the instant rebate of $100, the 12-60 is $786. For some reason, Adorama still has the 12-60 regularly priced at $999. So with the instant rebate, it is still a whopping $899!

I already have the 50 macro and the 70-300. But I am so tempted to grab a 12-60. But I already have the 14-54 ... what shall I do?

Remember, if you do buy, go through Cameralabs' links to the site!

Tough question. You probably can sell 14-54 later (that's what I am planning on doing). That's how you would justify bying 12-60.

I also have 14-54 and planning on getting 12-60 once when E3 successor is known. At that time I will either pick up used E3 or get a new E3 or get a successor, depending on the prices at that time. Knowing that those swd make lot's of difference with E3 but not much with E-520 I am not in any rush.

But I also have a dilemma. A guy is selling E-620 with grip and extra battery with kit lens (14-42), the 70-300 that I don't own (I use 40-150 for as my only telephoto) and sigma 30mm 1.4 all for a $1000.
Considering that E-620 with kit lens here is selling for $699, and the grip is $240, it seems that I am getting the 2 lens for free.
Or the side, buying 2 lens for 1000 (one is $400 and other is $600 in retail) it looks that E620+grip comes for free.
The only problem is that I have only 6 months old E-520 and I don't see myself needing that E-620.
I also need advise in what to do.
