    I live in the US and am looking at prices on the Lumix 12-35 and 35-100. I've found that some sellers are located in Japan and have lower prices on new lenses. Has anybody had experiences with this? I'm reading conflicting information that they might have an international warranty or they might have no warranty at all.

    I've bought some Panasonic lenses, including the 35-100, from Japan, and they do not come with an international warranty. Some sellers will help you submit a warranty claim if you are willing to absorb the cost of shipping the lens back to Japan for coverage under their domestic warranty. You should contact the seller to see if they will do so should the need arise.
