    Taiwan and Japan have this lens now and it is available on eBay but at prices starting around $900. That's a 50% premium on predicted US prices. I think I can wait. :smile:

    Amazon US still has it pending availability at $600.

    I plan on buying when I can get one closer to $500, which probably means late 2011 at the soonest. In the mean time the 45-200 and my 300 adapted Pentax and Nikon lenses will serve me just fine. I can wait as well. The same for the 14.

    Same thing is occurring with the Panny 14mm lens. It's available for pre-order for $399.99 in the US, but Asian sellers have it on Ebay for $550 or more.

    With that money, I'll get the Olympus 70-300 and an adapter, a FL -36R flash, a new SD card, 4GB more ram and a 2-way ticket to Florida. I think I still have spare for a drink, if I look around for air ticket.

    Ridiculous price.

    :) mega LOL :) :rofl:

    Iam very happy with my Oly 70-300 and E-PL1, so this 100-300 only comes in my mind because of its smaler size

    I have it on pre-order at Amazon - will be lucky to see it before Christmas.

    A German store has it in stock for € 629, a Dutch store offers it for € 599 but doesn't have it in stock. Can't buy it though because I preordered the GH2 (and to be honest, it wouldn't see a lot of use :smile:).

    Amazon Germany also has it (same price of 629 euro) and Amazon UK for 546 pounds. Hope the US supplies arrive soon.
