    Is there any trustable sites that sells new lens online and ships worldwide and also with reasonable price? I would like to know..

    Anything except ebay/amazon.. Amazon doesn't ship to Taiwan. and another thing I don't trust ebay unless its from a trusted seller..

    B&H Photo out of New York is one of the most respected sellers you will find.

    I have bought a great deal from them over many years without problem. Their prices are always reasonable.

    I have never needed overseas shipping so don't know what their policy is. In the US their speed and service is second to none.

    I am in Australia. B&H are exceptional in their speed and quality of service for international sales. Packaging is excellent and I have found them to be entirely trustworthy.

    I believe B&H is basically considered a benchmark in US for things photo. I only had positive experience with them. BTW they're one of the affiliate partners of mu-43.com. If you use the link in Affiliates - Mu-43.com Links Directory I believe they'll share some percentage with mu-43.com

    I bought my GH2 kit from this Taiwanese ebayer, it was excellent transaction with fast courier shipping.

    Equipment in Taiwan seems cheaper than overseas sources, why buy overseas with the more complicated warranty arrangements, when you can go local ?

    I've used B&H and Adorama several times (I'm in Australia) and they're both excellent with very similar prices.

    Hey there!

    I'm in Taipei right now and I checked out some shops on Bo Ai Road. Have you been there? I'm pretty sure you have haha. If you need lens immediately, some of the prices there are decent. If you can wait, it is almost always cheaper to buy from the US and ship it to Taiwan (B&H like other people have said is a reputable and amazing company).

    That's funny -- I have the reverse situation: I want the new Oly 40-150mm R but the Australian stores I've seen online won't ship to the States and it might not be worth it to have relations in Europe and Asia to buy, send it to me.
    I thought you guys got everything first. I hope you get yours!

    Watch out if your going to use it on a panny body, as the oly 14-150mm doesn't have OIS as the olympus bodies have it built in. It's worth paying extra for the panasonic version with OIS on the lens if you have a panasonic body.
