    is this for someone who wants to haul around less primes? (20mm, 14mm, etc.)

    pretty expensive lens but i can see the benefit of less gear to carry around.

    Do not forget the benefit of weather sealing. Its pretty-much the only weather sealed choice if you want a fast lens for your E-M5.

    Hopefully someone will make some weather-sealed primes soon.

    Amazon is definitely the most convenient/hasslefree store but reputable sellers on Ebay have this lens going for as low as $1099 now.

    Be careful, because many of those are sold from Japan where they state that the warranty is only valid in Japan. On top of that, you can expect to pay duties and taxes once it arrives in the country. Might not be saving all that much and it'll certainly take longer to arrive and without any warranty.

    The one I believe he is referring to is in Indiana. Been tempted to grab one at that price.

    Grabbed one for $1k shipped from a seller on Amazon earlier this week. Seller didn't have too much feedback but I figured I'd risk it (because I'm not too bright). Worked out well, lens was brand new and now I'm trying to figure out how much I really need the 20mm & 45mm.
