    OMG. That's 246€. That thing is more than twice of that where I live.
    I guess they don't ship to Europe, and if so, VAT, and what gets added at customs might add up to more than buying here. It's always the same *sigh* ...

    EDIT: They ship only to Canada, and the US...

    I ordered one at that price and a 75mm in black and sent them to my moms Canadian address. Even if I sell them as used in the UK where I live, I'll more than get my money back. Crazy pricing.

    Now I just have to wait until February for my mom to visit to get my hands on them :)

    I bought Nikon D40 and a couple of APS-c lenses in the US when travelling on business several years ago, and I made most of money back selling them on eBay UK when I switched to u4/3 last year. Crazy pricing.

    There is no Olympus Canada warranty facilities. I think we have to send to the US anyhow. So I am guessing yes.

    Google is your friend: "As of April 1, 2004, Olympus is offering its warranty service on an international basis, and regardless of where the specific digital camera or accessory was purchased. Should issues arise with your product within one year of the purchase date, customers will be able to bring that product - along with the warranty certificate and proof of purchase - to an Olympus Service Station or authorized Olympus distributor worldwide for service."

    This is messed. I saw this just the other day on here and thought I saw that it was on sale until Jan 9. I went to order today and the price is now $459. Isn't it supposed to be on sale until the 9th?

    I'm hoping they're doing some price re-alignment in anticipation of a reasonably priced nifty-fifty. Fingers-x'd.
