    You have to do a little work for this price.

    It is cheapest I have seen besides the ebay listing for $150 which was a price mistake. I received a call afterwords saying that they dropped and damaged the lens and they will not be getting shipment for more than a month!!!!!

    Here is how staples price works:

    Staples price:

    Subtotal: $191.99= price of the lens
    Delivery: FREE
    Coupon1: -$30.00 = coupon i bought ($2) from ebay "$30 off $150 online or in store"
    Tax: $11.34 = NJ tax
    Total: $173.33

    I also get 4% cash back right now on Bank Of America credit cards.

    Grand Total with Cashback= ~$166.40

    I know this is not popular lens but still a very good price. No thread yet in native lens image thread soon to change :cool:

    Lens used

    I am not sure where you are getting a $191.99 Staples price on the lens.
    I just went to Staples website and it lists price for $299.00.
    Can you shed further light on this?

    No it is not. I have the lens. I am using it right now. It came in 2 days ago. Sorry the price went back up.

    I can assure you it was not a spam. I do not work for staples. Just wanted to help out fellow m4/3 users. Here is best proof I can show without listing my address.
