First time: Panasonic 12-35mm X for less than $1,000 ($999).


Right after posting on 43rumors about the long exposure stabilization issue of the 12-35mm X lens the price went down to $999 via Panacam at Amazon US (Click here). Would be nice if for every issue we found on a camera or lens the price would drop the same day :)

  • Just have a look at DigitalRev. They were already selling it that price few weeks ago. Got mine there by the way.
    So stupid that it’s cheaper to make a lens travel around all the world than buy it in your own country…

    The price for 12-35 in Japan has already plunged down to $800, I don’t see any reason to buy it at $999.

  • gorg

    Sucks to buy Pana product upon its release.

  • Bollox

    I don’t see a reason to buy it above 400$.

  • Matthias

    No reason to buy it and to use it with an Oly cam and then have problems with CA…

    • WSG123

      Of course not, when you can use the oly 2.8 12-35 that doesn’t exist.

      Seriously though, I have the lens and I’ve been pretty happy with it, Lightroom takes care of the CA in a click.

        I don’t want to use RAW, no time for that…

  • Twaddler Belafonte

    Doh! When you said $100 discount on the E-M5, I was thinking finally down to $850, maybe I can get a refurb for $750 now? Drat, I say to you! :P I covet!

  • John

    It’s been less than $1K before. Before the Holidays I bought it as a bundle with the GH-2 and it was $999 with the GH-2 for $499. It’s been an excellent lens – much better than I thought it would be.

  • Yun

    I have to agree with everybody , no reason to buy it .
    The price still high in my opinion for such not very exceptional lens . Better save for something else , example the 42.5 F1.2 top of my list .

  • Philip Broom

    Pity Panasonic has this DUMB policy of not selling to non-US residents!!!

  • Reza

    Actually panacam sells these from hong kong, without a US warranty. There are lots of these deals on eBay, all coming from hong kong or japan, new in box and without US warranties, and all for $990 or so, including shipping.

    I’d like to buy one, but will wait for the price to get a bit lower, and with US warranty.

    LOL at early adopters. Thanks!
