    The hard to find Panasonic Leica DG 25mm f/1.4 Summilux is in stock at Unique Photo for $529 with free shipping. It hasn't been available at this price in quite a while and won't last long.

    So that we get credit for the referral, please click on this link to go to Unique Photo and then search for "PNL1027" to go to the specific product page.

    Amin, your link is not working. Not the one in this thread or on Affiliates page.

    It's working for me :confused:.

    Anyway, no time to spare on this one. If my link doesn't work for you, type UniquePhoto.com into your browser, find the lens, and buy it before they run out of stock. Affiliate credit be damned :smile:.

    The link is indeed working. I already have the (absolutely perfect fit for the OM-D) PL 25mm 1.4 2 months back and got it for the same price except with 10usd shipping from Kenmore camera. If they run out at Unique Photo, check them out on ebay. Their actual website says it's on order but they have 2 available right now.

    I on the other hand was happy to have purchased an original BLN-1 battery from Unique Photo -- that way I don't have to carry around 2 chargers. :p

    These seem to be trickling in here and there over the last couple of weeks. It was listed as back-ordered at B&H when I placed an order for one on 6/20 and I got it today. I noticed that it never did get listed as "in stock" though, only "back-ordered" and now it is listed as "temporarily unavailable".

    I can wait to use it tonight!

    I bought this lens a couple weeks ago for my dad from DigitalRev for $609, and I got dinged $20 for customs :smile:. The resellers on Amazon haven't gone lower than ~$650 in a long time.

    $569 is about the best deal anyone's gotten in a long time until today, if that's any comfort to you.

    Link still doesn't work for me with Chrome. No issue with Safari though. Strange; I think all the other Affiliate links do work...

    I called Adorama today and provided those two links (J&R and Unique Photo. I requested a price match. My lens (that I purchased for $569 only two days ago from Adorama) just shipped yesterday and hasn't arrived yet. I'll let you all know the result after they've made a decision.

    Has anyone here actually TALKED to Unique about whether these are really in stock? I went to their website and saw that they showed the BLN-1 batteries for the EM5 in stock. I quickly ordered a couple only to find out today that they're in the middle of a huge website update and everything is showing "in stock" whether it actually is or not. They also temporarily lost a huge number of orders, including mine, which I'd paid via PayPal - a bit of a hassle trying to get a refund. They don't have these batteries any more than anyone else does. I don't know if this is true of the lenses also, but I'd call them and actually talk to someone rather than buy on the web just because the lens is listed as in-stock. Maybe see if they'll still give MU-43 their referral on it if they DO have them, but I wouldn't bet a whole lot they actually physically have the lenses in stock....

    The UniquePhoto website now shows the lens as not in stock.

    I'm local and headed to the store with a list of stuff I wanted which are marked as "in-stock". They just recently updated their website and many items that are listed as In stock are actually NOT. Their website has a lot of issues apparently.

    I recommend calling first and don't rely on their website.

    Kind of embarrassing that I sent the link to Adorama for a price match. But the J&R price link that I also sent is still less than I paid at Adorama, so maybe they'll match the $538.88 price at J&R.

    Turns out that by the time Adorama checked, neither of these sites had the lens in stock, so they refused to price match.
