Just came across what looks like a very good price on the Panasonic tele power-zoom. CompSource is selling it for <strike>US$195</strike>US$206. I came across this via a search and don't have any history (or affiliation) with this vendor, but they seem to have decent ratings. They do display a Panasonic authorized badge, though I'm not sure how one confirms that. The next lowest price I found online today was $299 at Samy's and B&H is selling this lens for $319. The lowest previous sale price I could find listed here was $250 a few months ago. It's worth noting that the listing states "*** No returns allowed on this item, exchange only. ***" This gives me a bit of pause, but the price is so low that you almost can't lose. I just bought one last week used at a higher price (and I felt I was getting a good deal at the price I paid) or I'd be all over this. EDIT: since this was posted the price has gone up from $195 to $206. It's still a pretty good deal, though. EDIT #2: Out of stock. Price now listed at $400.
