    Price drop for Panasonic 7-14 f/4 & 45 f/2.8 macro

    B&H dropped the Panasonic 7-14 f/4 from $843 to $775 and the 45 f/2.8 macro has dropped to $695. I am not sure what the previous price for the macro was but I am sure that the 7-14 was $843 because that what I bought one for early in Jan 2011.

    Here is a link:

    Looks like the prices went back up at B&H, but Amazon.com still has them listed at the lower prices. Kind of strange the pricing would vary that much.

    Question Re: Price drop for Panasonic 7-14 f/4 & 45 f/2.8 macro

    That is strange, I don't recall ever seeing that sort of thing happening at B&H and I have been buying my stuff from them for over ten years.

    There is a rumor out today that both of these lenses are being redesigned. So, the price drop makes some sense.

    Yeah, I just saw that rumor. It's weird that the rumor is the 7-14mm is going to be redesigned with OIS. The only sense I could make of it is if Panasonic wants to retool the lens as an 'HD' version for video. 7-14mm HD w/ OIS sounds like it'll be expensive, but hopefully that means the original Panny 7-14mm will keep getting cheaper.

    Looks like the price went back up at Amazon. Hopefully they drop the price again when I actually have money to spend.

    I hope the rumors are true! Maybe we'll get some good lenses as a result!
