You might have noticed that the popular Panasonic 20mm pancake is out of Stock in all biggest US stores: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R. Can’t explain why! The upcoming 25mm f/1.4 Leica will certainly not replace that lens! Maybe Panasonic has some production issues?
While waiting for the new E-P3, US stores are running some deals on the “old” E-P2. At BHphoto (Click here) you can get the external flash for free when purchasing the E-P2 with lens. The total price is $653.
There have been a sensible price drop on the Panasonic 100-300mm lens. You can get it for $521 at Amazon (Click here).
One more thing: It will take a very long time before to see the Fuji X100 in Stock in US and Europe. Dealers are telling me that they still have no 100% reliable info about when they will have it in Stock. You can preorder the cameras at Amazon (Click here) and J&R (Click here). And if you don’t care about the price you can get the X100 now on eBay (Click here).
