    Just got my lens delivered from eBay today! But can't go shooting yet, since I have to study for university :(

    Guys, you guys must visit yusukeya on eBay. His service is very good! I got my lens in just 4days after shipping. Go google him as well! (My user name is the same on eBay, check his reviews)

    I'm posting in hope to help those eagerly waiting for b and h or what ever to get a hold of them. Seriously wait no longer!!!

    Reading this makes me sound like im advertising for him. But I'm not!! :)

    I'm new to the forum, hope I didn't post this in a wrong place!

    I want this lens bad, but everyone on ebay is over charging like crazy. I guess it's all about how bad you want it.

    Seeing as though the test is tomorrow, I think it's best if I wait until after exam to enjoy shooting! Then I wouldnt have to feel guilty and i can spend all the time I want. Until ofcourse another assessment comes up...

    And yes, it comes with hood and pouch!

    Well yer depend on exchange rate. But I'm thinking, might as well enjoy it now rather than waiting for it and risking for the price to change when it comes out again.

    But this guy on eBay can get you other stuff! Since it takes a while for Panasonic products to become available overseas I think this ebayer can help out alot of us! Especially if we (the forum users) can start to get a discount from this guy! A great win win situation. (I'm suggesting someone to negotiate a partnership or something lol)

    Man, paypal needs to have a waiting period to help prevent spontaneous lens purchases. I have been able to hold out for my Adorama preorder this far and we are hopefully getting close to US shipments, but it is so pretty! :dash2:

    After seeing the other items for sale by yusukea, I realized I need to sell my recently purchased GF3, and get this CHOBi CAM ONE HD digital camera mini mini 18g Japan New | eBay -- sorry couldn't resist the joke :rofl:

    Anyway good luck with your exam(s), and I look forward on your feedback on this lens, since I'm seriously thinking about shelling out and getting it myself.

    Ok, I like compact as well as the next guy, but that is taking things a bit too far

    Sorry guys I dont have an oly body to test it.

    On my gf2, the Lens is not noisy.

    There is no mad clicking noise when I point the camera into a light source. Only one quick change of aperture. U can hear it do this, but it does not continue to change aperture.

    Besides like someone else posted before, the shutter is louder and the light source had to be pretty dam bright for this to happen. So i think it is not a big deal, on a Panasonic body.

    Do you have the PL45, too? If so, is the hood the same? Would be nice to only have to carry one.

    I am disappointed - that camera looks like the right size for me, but I see no mention of a built-in flash or IBIS. :confused:
