    Micro Center is selling the Panasonic 3D lens for $102.39, which seems to be about half the street price elsewhere.

    The offer is in-store only. They're probably trying to get rid of the few they have. The store near me has two of them, so there are at least a handful out there at this price.

    Now if there only were a way to make GAF Viewmaster discs at home ...

    This lens was firmware crippled by Panasonic. When the body detects that this lens is attached, it will only take pictures at 2MP and no video. There is a solution to defeat Panasonic's crippleware though. Put a piece of tape over the contacts on the lens and then use it like a MF lens. You get full resolution back and 3D video. Panasonic crippled this on the CSCs to protect their videocam product. I hate it when companies do things like that.

    I think that's about $100 more than I'd pay for one...

    I've flirted with buying the Loreo lens, but something else always pops up the demands my money.
