    You have a decent shot at saga falabella if you want to buy new and pay plenty, they stock a lot of Panasonic stuff (in Lima).

    Just reporting in after having visited saga fallabella (sp?) and all i can say is LOL. $560 for the 14mm. It was marked at the same price as the 20 1.7!

    Anyway, live and learn. Thx for the tips anyhow!

    HOLY CRAP, I knew it would be expensive, but that's ridiculous. Que tengas mejor suerte a encontrar el lente.
