    Bump! One last attempt before eBay- would rather buy from trusted seller here! Especially on the 35-100mm! No one has one they'd like to sell?

    So would most people... but how many 35-100 could be out there, used, that people want to part with for less than they (recently) paid?

    I'm thinking it's hard to find a seller for a reason.

    I like mine, paid full price, and it's not for sale :wink:

    Maybe in six months? :smile:

    Got it! Makes sense! How about suggestions on where to get it for a good price new? There are eBay sellers in Japan/Taiwan/HK, but would rather not buy from abroad if possible!

    Good question, I would like to know about that too because previously I've read posts on forums where people have posted that they got these lenses below the retail prices.

    Ebay sellers from overseas are trustworthy, and prices for the 12-35mm and 35-100mm are about $100-150 lower. The only problem is that the warranty on these lenses are only valid from the country of origin (usually Japan).

    Hey Jen!

    Also, depending on your luck, you may get charged value added taxes for items brought from abroad. Sometimes it makes it through customs just fine. You'll probably have better luck with the 12-35 than the 35-100 since the latter is for all intents and purposes new and much more usable than the 12-35. I luckily snatched up a 12-35 from another member here for a very good deal.

    Wish you the best of luck. Have you posted any of your landscape/sunset/beach shots yet? I'd love to see them.

    Update for anyone looking for the 35-100mm lens... not sure if there's a better deal out there, but this is what I went with:
    J&R currently offering the lens at $1398 so $100 less than other sites in the US. J&R rewards will also give you $14 back in rewards for this purchase. If you have a Discover card, you can go through Cashback Bonus and get 5% back ($70). If you don't have a Discover card, J&R offering promo $10 off $100+ purchase with code CES2013 (I emailed them). The Discover and the J&R $10 promo can't be combined so if you have Discover that is obviously a better deal. Free shipping and no tax... so ultimately will be $1328 after cash back (and $1314 if you count the J&R reward you can use later).

    Still super pricey... but better than $1500. Also, just to save everyone the trouble- best on Ebay is $1264 from Japan but with $47 shipping and not sure if you pay Customs/etc and of course you lose the warranty benefit.

    That still seems pricey, on sale for boxing week in Canada for $1100, but they won't ship outside Canada.

    $1328 beats $1500! Who/where is J&R?

    Heck, I have and use a Discover Card, would have loved to get $70 off on my 35-100. $1000 from Canada would be fantastic! Oh well, I love using the 35-100 and glad I got a good price/discount on my 12-35.

    J&R is in NYC - the warehouse maybe in NJ though. Used to frequent J&R when I lived in New York.

    $1399 at Amazon for the 35-100. 12-35 seems about the same everywhere.

    Well, there is my answer, I'd wondered about waiting until after Christmas...could have saved $100. I did buy from Amazon a couple weeks ago.

    Oh well, the family pics and comfort I started to establish with the tool over the Christmas holiday were probably worth $100.

    New US warranted 35-100. $1339 + $5.50 shipping on Amazon, from Panacam.

    I don't think Panacam version has US warranty as it is shipped from outside of USA.

    Hi Jen, I bought Panasonic 12-35 X zoom lens from Adorama (from New York City) using United airlines VISA credit card with dollars-into-points doubled as redeemable for free United airlines flight anywhere in USA or international. Let's say if this lens is priced at $1,200, it will convert into 2,400 points as earned into my UAL Mileage Club membership. Enjoy in shopping for Panasonic.
