    I've got this lens and like it a lot. It does not usually get as cheap as the comparable Olympus lens, so this is a good deal if you want OIS. (It is sometimes thrown in with Panasonic camera kits -- that's how I got mine.)

    Thanks a lot! I just ordered one. I was leaning more towards the 45-175mm power zoom originally but I don't use telephoto zooms that much and for the price this will definitely work and was one of the lenses that I was considering.

    Also, for anybody else planning to purchase the lens, don't forget that Discover card deals offers 10% cash back for purchases at Panasonic.com, which knocks around $10 more off the price.

    Looks like it is backordered now. Which is too bad, since it is a good lens.

    I ordered the lens yesterday. Just got this email from Panasonic:

    Due to a processing issue, we are unable to ship the following items from order PNA-0021****.

    Please contact Customer Service either by email or the 800 number below as soon as possible for further assistance. In the meantime, you will not be billed for any of these items until this issue has been resolved.

    Item # H-FS45150AK

    I called customer service, and was told the order was cancelled because there was an error on the price on their website.
    Price today is $299....but it says not available.

    I bet the $99 price was supposed to be bundle deal with camera.

    Or, that's the new Matte version that matches the G7 and GX8, so they probably meant to closeout the old shiny finish model.

    Either way, bummer, because I was going to order....

    So, it was price error, if Panasonic are selling $99 bundle with body, and it's shame that they don't honor this error, it's not like $999 vs $99.

    I think they should honor it too, but how would you get them to do that?

    So today I said what the heck. I sent this email to Panasonic Customer Service:
    Hi,
    I placed this order on 12/8 after seeing this lens (LUMIX G VARIO 45-150mm H-FS45150 Lens with Matt Finish H-FS45150AK ) on your website.
    The total came to $97.99 + tax $6.86+ $104.85
    I received an email from you stating the order was cancelled.
    I think you should honor the price shown on your website.
    I checked my Paypal account tonight and see that you haven’t cancelled the transaction. I would prefer to get the lens.
    Best Holiday Wishes,
    John

    Later today I got a reply:
    Good Afternoon,
    Thank you for contacting Panasonic, your order was cancelled due to a pricing error on our website, I apologize for the inconvenience
    Thank You

    Panasonic (or should I say Panasonic USA) slips out just like that?
