    Wow, that's an awesome deal for an excellent lens! I've had one for six years now, otherwise I'd be all over this ;)

    For those in the US, you'll get a manufacturer warranty. If you buy a lens imported from a different country/region, many companies will not honor the warranty unless they have some sort of international or worldwide policy.

    Currently $697.99 on the main page. Though there is a refurbished one available for $999.99. :rofl: I didn't check to see if the seller is P.T. Barnum.

    Amazon themselves are selling it for $547. It's out of stock, but you can order it and they'll ship it when they get more lenses.

    Jonathan, thanks for pointing that out. One needs to look carefully at Amazon listings. The main page price I quoted is from Cameta selling through Amazon. It will be interesting to see what happens when Amazon has inventory available again. Will they displace Cameta from the main page? And will their price change?

    I got mine last week! It's razor sharp as well. To be honest the purple flare issue isn't so bad, you just have to be a bit more aware of how you shoot a scene. I used to own a Sigma 15-30mm for Nikon and it was very similar to the Panasonic lens in terms of build, sharpness and purple flare!

    Here's a few samples with the E-P5:
