    They've also got the Fuji XPro1 and X100 at very good prices.

    LOL ... now that's a Black Friday deal that is to may liking (unfortunately, I already have the 7-14). I hope you enjoy the lens.

    I was trying to sell my copy of this lens on the B&S thread but didn't get a single PM after I dropped the price in line with the spirit of Black Friday. No wonder, I can't possibly match that price.

    The link the OP provided says both lenses are sold already. I wonder who the other lucky dude was.

    Oh well, I guess I'm likely to end up keeping my lens after all. :tongue:

    I don't sell my lenses. I have outfitted my daughters and friends with dSLRs and now µ4/3 cameras ... so if something has dust on it ... I tend to give it away.

    Hey Gary! Too bad I don't have kids yet. :wink: But yeah, I plan to teach my kid/s photography someday.

    (I think the real reason I don't sell anything is because I wouldn't buy camera gear from me ... so I treat others as how I treat myself.)

    Okay, you drug it out of me. I am the other lucky dude.

    There was no way I could turn it down at that price. The amazing thing is it shipped less than an hour after I ordered. That place doesn't waste a second.

    Now I have to try it out a bit and decide if I am going to sell my Rokinon 7.5 and possibly my 14mm to offset most of the cost. The 14 is already a little redundant since I have the 12-35 so I will probably sell it, even though I love its miniscule size.

    No problem :) make sure to read the item's description when you purchase from Amazon Warehouse (bottom-most part, click 'read more') for the list of defects (if any) and other conditions.

    Looking forward to your shots with it!

    Read the "more" section, but there was nothing else, it is "like new" so we will see. 30 day money back, that is good in case the lens is funky.

    Just payed off the Oly 60mm so tomorrow I will order it. This is the lens I should have had from day 1, but I just didn't know. I sure enjoy UWA.

    I guess in a week or so I should have it.

    Thank again for the info.

    That is one magnificent piece of glass. Nice canopy shot! Looking forward to seeing more pics from you.

    I'm glad you found a winning deal. I'm sorry I couldn't offer a better deal with the one I tried to sell. Happy shooting!

    Glad you got in on that deal! :)
    Amazon Warehouse has just one left in 'very good' condition for $820ish now.

    *It'd be interesting to learn about Amazon's (auto) pricing algorithm and to be able to plan/predict it. I've seen Amazon Warehouse items fluctuate in $100-300 range and they're really good deals at the bottom ends. I've seen Pana 12-35mm for $909, Xpro-1 for $1050 (before the price drop), all in like-new condition.

    Just got the $630 one from Lensrentals. I am at work so I can't test it properly, but it certainly looks great. A couple very minor scuffs on the body is the only difference I can see from brand new. Have to take some shots with it to see the image quality, but so far I am very happy.
