    One of the comments there pointed out that Amazon.com is also selling the lenses cheap - maybe even cheaper and not grey market. That was the case when I checked earlier today. That might not be the case now - but still, quite a markdown.

    I have a used one available for $650. Great lens, I'm hoping not to regret going with Olympus 40-150 instead. I've sat on this decision for months because they're both excellent.

    I would get the 40-150 before selling the 35-100, if you can afford it.
    I got the 40-150 first. It is a great lens. Sharp and very nicely made.
    But it is a very big, bulky and heavy monster.
    Shooting with it reminds me of carrying around 35mm gear.
    For the telephoto reach and high IQ it can't be beat.
    But I ended up getting the 35-100 also, because it is so much smaller and lighter.
    I now find I take the 35-100 more often, unless I need the added reach,
    just because it is so much nicer to carry and use.

    You can get a used 75mm 1.8 for under $600 USD and gray market or used 45-175mm X for $200 +/-. Get a really fast prime and a versatile zoom for about the same price! :)
