    $1299 and free shipping in Canada, not sure if they ship to the US. Can't comment on their customer service yet as this is the first item I have ordered from them but I ordered it and 2 hours later got a shipping confirmation.

    Even with GST its as cheap or cheaper than most used ones that have come up for sale so far.

    Wow. Great price, even lower than the price at duty free in Japan.

    Just have to remember most exchange sites quote the bank to bank transer rate, retail (credit card, paypal) are a few points less (or more depending how you look at it)

    Just thought I would followup and say they shipped the lens right away, sent me the tracking info, and it arrived with no issues. Obviously the real test of any retailer is when there is issues but up to this point I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again.

    Wish I spoke French!

    I Managed to move it to my cart, but it looks like they will only sell to Canadian customers. :(

    LOL, I had to use Google translate to complete the order myself, been 20 years since I took French. Like I say I don't know their US ship policy, you could try calling them. Guarantee they will speak english as well.

    I'd love to order one but it's just too many $$ for the use I'd give it. My preference is for a prime super wide to save weight and bulk.
    Please let us know what you think of it when you've had a few weeks of shooting with it.

    That's a great price. I've been using my Panasonic 7-14 a bit these last few days and the purple blobs are becoming tiring. That Olympus lens sure looks appealing but the extra cash to upgrade ain't easy to stomach.

    It might just be easier to get a panasonic body to get rid of the blobs
