    Buydig is selling the G7 with 14-42 and 35-100 lenses for about $1100:

    http://www.buydig.com/mobile/Product.aspx?sku=E5PNDMCG7KS

    So if this the f/2.8 X lens, as their page shows and eBay listing implies: Great Deal :clapping:but for the non-X slower model .. not so much :cautious:. As I recall buydig beach and Abe's are the same people, and Abe's has the non-X on their site.

    Has anyone called this bluff to see what arrives?

    Wow! And I thought I got a great deal on a new U.S. 35-100/2.8 last week for $750. The product page under the "in the box" clearly indicates it's the 2.8 version. I'd jump on this if I already didn't have the lens.

    In addition, pricing as shown on first page also clearly states that purchase separately this is $2,103. Bundled savings = $1005.

    :thiagree:. I'm newly returned to the :mu43: universe so I am not familiar with which lenses get common discounts, or even general pricing on most of them. I have heard rumors of a few shady dealers though I have used some of them & have no regrets. Anyway it's good to hear confirmation of what I was seeing - thanks all!

    I've purchased from BuyDig and it's sister company BeachCamera (or it was the sister company at the time I used them 3-4 years ago).

    If this is a real deal I'll buy it. Even if just to sell off the pieces.

    :cool: !
    I am waiting for holiday deals (and closure on home refi) but I'll gladly lose some focal length for f2.8 speed. I have used buydig with no issues.

    I think it had to be an error

    Gone from eBay.com and .ie as well. Hope someone grabbed this one-off deal!
