    buydig and beach camera are the same company. They are reputable stores. I have bought camera gears from them several times since 2007.

    This lens is a lot of fun, much more than I thought it would be when I bought it. I'd be all over this except that I've already got mine.

    Great deal, and I've bought from them in the past, perfectly fine to deal with.

    <strike>Price is back up to $299 now. I'm not sure if I'm sad that I apparently missed this deal or happy that I'm able to hold onto my $240 for a bit longer. :wink:</strike>

    EDIT: struck out incorrect info

    You have to apply the code to get the discount, the deal is still going.

    I picked one up, I've been looking to grab a panny 14mm but the prices on ebay keep going up so somehow I justified paying $240 for this :rofl:

    First day on the forum, and you're already costing me money. Ordered this to play with as a poor-mans-wide since the 7-14 is so pricey.

    D'oh! Sorry, I didn't read the original post carefully enough. Great, now I have to actually decide if this lens is worth $240 to me. Free shipping, too! Dangit, I'm feeling like my GAS may get the best of me on this one.

    Maybe if I go look at some fisheye image threads for a while this deal will expire. :rolleyes:

    I swore off buying more photo gear this year but this was too good to pass up.

    Thanks to Paypal's "Bill me later" I have six months to figure out what to sell to pay for it!

    I figure worst case I can play with it for a few months and get my $240 back on the used market, unless $240 becomes a common price (but I figure they were probably selling well at $299)

    I've also purchased fro them without problems. I think I'll pass on this, though. A fisheye is more of a gadget/occasional lens for me. Don't think I'd get enough use out of it. :tongue:

    Anyone know who they ship with?

    So I can calculate the custom brokerage fees.

    I got in on the deal! Looking forward to the new lens and taking it with me to Italy next month on my honeymoon.

    I tried a couple hours ago, and the code didn't work. I just tried again now, and it worked!

    Bought one too, thanks for the link. Now I need to decide what to sell to balance out the gear.

    just bought one as well. I had been holding back on it at $350 and $300, but at $240... I can't hold off anymore lol. Can't wait to get this in the mail and test it out on some shoots. Should be a fun lens to play with.

    Item appears to be out of stock as of today. It's listed as "Not Available" on the website.

    I have to say that buydig has always been fantastic with shipping. I ordered the lens on Thursday using the free shipping, and I had it in my possession Saturday morning! Fantastic! Now if they would only carry Panasonic lenses...

    I ordered mine at 10:30A on Thursday and according to their website it hasn't shipped yet! But it's good to hear that somebody actually got one so hopefully mine will arrive soon.

    EDIT: Mine shipped yesterday, after I wrote the above. Scheduled delivery is tomorrow! Off to the buy/sell forum to generate some cash!
