    I've seen that this lens is being shipped from many camera dealers in the EU. Does anyone have a chance to play with it yet?

    If the lens is as good as the PanaLeica 25mm f/1.4 @1.4 I think I'll say good bye to my favorite Panasonic 20mm. f/0.95 + IS + ISO 1600 means some crazy low-light action stopping for street photography!

    I had a phone call yesterday and I am due to get mine on Wednesday. I am getting lens #3 into Australia out of the first shipment of 10 lenses. All are taken and the distributor has orders for around 100 so far. I believe they will be in short supply for quite a while everywhere.

    Out of curiosity, where did you order your lens from?

    Would love to hear your opinion when you get a chance to play with that baby :cool:

    Any updates? Did you receive the lens on Wednesday? I'm dying to hear what you think about it. :)

    That's Wednesday the 3rd. It will probably be available on the 2nd is my guess but that's Melbourne Cup afternoon and everyone stops work for a stupid horse race.

    Mind if I ask when you preordered the lens? I placed mine on September 3rd and am hoping I'll be one of the recipients from the first batch.

    It is an exciting lens no doubt, but definitely not without its caveats. Read this discussion on the lens and also take a look at the image samples.

    August 27. I am getting #3 out of the first 10. The guy that rang me (it wasn't Scott) mentioned that they had 100 orders. Before I placed the order, I rang Scott and I think he mentioned that they had ordered 20 at that stage. If that's correct, they are only receiving half their first order. Not unusual for something new.
