(UPDATED) Panasonic 100-300mm in Stock at Amazon


There are two Panasonic 100-300mm lens in Stock at Amazon (Click here). (Will be sold out soon I guess!)

But there are a few very good deals in US stores. Take a look at deals on the bottom:

    Did we ever get confirmation that this H & B shop ever shipped the 14mm F2.5 lenses that advertised a couple of weeks ago?

    I think what they are doing is buying them from Canadian stores and then selling them here. I doubt they actually have the lenses in their hands.

      One reader contacted me to say he got the 14mm from H&B ;)

    • hd72

      I’m curious how that would work… I’d think there would be little incentive for the Canadian stores to sell them to H&B for much less than US retail at this point.

      (I just ordered one using the link, so I’d like to believe they’re legit. ;) Their derivative name sounds suspicious of course, but I’ve never had any problems with Amazon 3rd-parties before.)

    I did receive a 14mm f/2.5 from them a couple weeks back, shipped the same day too.

    • mpgxsvcd

      Maybe they are legit then. I should have ordered one from them then. I could really use that lens right now.

      I bet yours has a Canadian serial number though. I wonder if the Panasonic warranty is valid on it?

      After the first few 14mm lenses sold from H & B they raised the price above MSRP. That is how they were making money.

    I just got an email from Amazon saying my order from H&B has shipped via FedEx and should arrive next week. So far so good!

    • mpgxsvcd

      I guess they are legit then. Or at least they have the lenses in stock. Who knows where they actually came from?

    At the end of October I placed an order for the lens from Amazon itself as a Pre order.

    This morning Amazon listed the lens as available on the 8th tomorrow, instead of the estimated availability of after Christmas.

    My experience it that there is a day delay between the larger dedicated Camera Stores and a direct order from Amazon.

    If experience prevails, I should be notified of the shipment of the lens from my preorder tomorrow. (I hope).

    B&H’s evil twin?

    • snowflake

      I just checked. and as of 2300 e.s.t. there are more in stock.

      Also my order from amazon says it will not arrive till after christmas.

      I am questioning my assumption that amazon direct will sell in a couple of days.

        My FedEx tracking info says the lens from H&B should be delivered to me this Thursday, December 9th. Are you able to cancel your previous order from Amazon themselves?

  • snowflake

    Hi Hd72,
    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Amazon is now shipping my order, so again Amazon direct ships a day or two after the larger camera stores in the US

    Shipment 2 of 3
    Shipping Soon
    Delivery Estimate: December 13, 2010
