    ¥50694 is $545. that sounds a lot more reasonable.

  • newsbat

    who set the price at $699.99 first? that seemed out of nowhere. olympus america web site hasn’t even listed the new lens. if correct price is around $550, im gonna get it asap.

  • Chow

    I’ll await some reviews first..

  • Christoph

    Just preordered mine on Amazon Germany. € 606,- is quite a premium over $ 545, but looking forward to it none the less.

  • Ben

    Price are cheaper in Japan, do not expect that price in Europe ! It is listed at 650€ in !

  • GH1 user

    499$ or less and i might get one
    Dpreview review pretty much confirm that the panasonic 7-14mm beat it when it comes to sharpness/CA/Distortion/Lens flare plus Panasonic got extra 2mm and F4.0 Through the entire range

    you know i have been waiting for the next e3 since dec 2008.. cuz i have been using the e510 and my trusty 14-35, 12-60, 50-200, 50mm and 25mm and 2 kit lens … dam my gears are getting rusty…

    Just be patient, Olympus is right on schedule. The flagship rollover time is 4 years, so 2011 we will see the next E-X

    Nothing in the 43 dept will be introduced in the coming months, to keep the m43 premium high

    If you decide to jump ship, please sell your stuffs on eBay. They dont fetch much in returns – so more people will have the chance to use SHG glasses for cheap.
