    To be clear, it's sold on Amazon, but it's not from Amazon. The seller is Samy's camera, which is an authorized Panasonic dealer.

    Don't confuse the website and the seller. For example, I could go to the buy/sell section here and pick up someone's gear, but that doesn't mean that "mu-43.com sold me a lens." Some random person on mu-43.com sold me a lens.

    Buying from Samys is legit. It's like buying from B&H or Adorama (on a smaller scale :wink:).

    I got my Panasonic 45-200 zoom lens from Samy's last year. It got here quickly and for a great price. :thumbup:

    Oh, definitely legitimate, which is why I mentioned that they're an authorized dealer. Just wanted people to be aware from whom they're buying. By the way, got to play with a GH3 today alongside my G2, and OH MAN. Why does that camera have to be so cool? I just couldn't justify it without upgrading my lenses too, and that would be a $3,000 proposition . . . but on the bright side, my optics setup would ostensibly be set up for the next 5-7 years. On second thought, yeah right, there'd always be more to buy!

    Samy's may be the B&H or Adorama on the left coast.

    Amazon (selling by itself) has it now also for 998-plus 4% off for future purchase.

    Samy's is to L.A. as B&H is to NYC. Almost.
