    Amazon France has an interesting offer at


    where the combination of Panasonic 15/1.7 lens and Panasonic GM1 body comes in at a total of 533 Euro (all handled by Amazon themselves). This offer is available on Amazon Global, too.

    This offer effectively is a reasonably well-priced Panasonic H-X015E LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15 mm F1.7 ASPH with a totally free Panasonic GM1 thrown in on top.

    Holy cow that is an insane deal! Is it even real?

    Well, here's to hoping so, because I just bought it for $323 from Amazon Germany. Even just re-selling it straightaway on ebay would net ~ $300 gain.

    Crazy. I must be missing something. :fingers crossed:

    Edit: It is a little disconcerting that the shop title is "NEW!!!! DANGER!!! Before you place the order, please contact me at: LEASHOPP [at] WEB.DE !!! + - + - = ,, -, .-- Shipping guidelines"

    Which shop did you order it from? Glad to know we're in this together, in case it ends up being a scam :p Let's hope not

    holy shit I'm tempted to join you guys on this gamble... but on the other hand
    "NEW!!! DANGER!!!!" is not reassuring...

    ahhhh, now i'm second guessing myself..... finger is hovering over the cancel button. the old saying.... "if it looks too good to be true, it probably is" comes to mind....

    I'm thinking the same thing.. but at the same time, it's through Amazon, so it should come with Amazon's guarantee, I think. Worst case scenario we get a refund, right?

    Edit: JK, I couldn't handle the pressure; I can't afford to lose $300 right now if it's a scam. I cancelled. Best of luck though, it's a fantastic deal if it works!!

    Right :) but might be hard to navigate a refund when i cant read the website, that's my only thinking. haha. plus would we need to pay for return shipping? if it arrived and turned out it was body only or something?

    Yeah they must have ran out; it said there were only 2 left when I had ordered mine.

    Maybe another one will pop up since I just cancelled mine though?

    I really hope it ends up working out for you, it's really an insane deal.

    Edit: haha, cold feet all around, it seems

    I should have stressed that the price that I posted are strictly for straight purchases on Amazon, the web site, from Amazon, the merchant.
    Amazon - the trading platform - is currently full of fraudulent offers from non-Amazon merchants
    In all likelihood, any "deal" offers found at the links that I posted are fraudulent - with the sole exception being what Amazon itself offers.
