Not a "super" deal perhaps, but cheaper than anyone else is selling it by about $30, and free shipping. Amazon.com: Panasonic H-FS45150K Lumix G Series Lens (Black): PANASONIC: Electronics I contacted the seller, and they claim to be authorized resellers, and that the product carries a US warranty. Mine came with a English / French manual, like my other US gear, but no warranty card. I don't remember whether my other purchased new lenses came with a card or not. I was able to register the lens, with serial number, via Panasonic's US online registration page, however. I'm really amazed at how tiny this lens is. Combined with my 12-35, this will make a great travel combo.
