    Does anyone know why this lens seems to be out of stock at most online vendors, with others charging up to $500 for it (I think MSRP is $300)? I want this lens but don't want to pay almost double retail for it. Anyone know if it will have wider availability again soon? If so, how soon?

    Real Name:
    The panasonic website does have the lens in stock, but at full MSRP (which is $349) and you'd have to pay taxes as they operate in every US state. If you're in the US, there are a bunch on ebay for as low as $319 buy-it-now - you can get another 8% off that with the bing cashback program as well.
