Does this lens ever go on sale, I see it for over a thousand, and even on ebay its close to that price. I love the idea of a fast zoom, but the price point of this, pushes it out of reach for me. I know when this lens was first released, many people complained. I mean Panasonic released a cheaper 14-42 lens, in part because the 14-45mm was too expensive (and heavier). I've not see any downward pressure on the pricing and I've not see any faster zooms that could compete with this. Sorry if this a bit ranty but I'd love to get a faster zoom (though I'm happy with the Oly 14-42mm) but at this point in my life, if I spent over a thousand for a lens the wife would kill me.
