    Lenses for the G1

    Last night I was all over the B&H site looking for the 45-200 lens for the G1. Nowhere to be found or I am just dumb when it comes to searching.

    Can anyone help with regard to locating this lens? Also is there a new lens coming for the G1. I think I remember on one of these threads a mention of a 7 to something lens.

    Thanks for any help

    I had the same problem with B & H--never could find it. 17th St. had it but it is now backordered. There are some other places to find it--but one would think B & H would be carrying it--I tried multiple ways of searching for it there.

    There is a 7-14 f/4 supposed to be available in 2009 as well as a 20 f/1.7 (which is the one I'm most interested in). Oh, and there is a 14-150 (??) available which most likely will appear when the G1HD appears since it is being developed for that camera with video.

    It's supposed to be a 14-140 I think... I don't know about the aperture range.

    Kind Regards

    To my knowledge B&H will list items only if they are sure to be able to get product. I found my 45-200mm at a local camera store. Nice lens. Now if only Panasonic would hurry along the other lenses...

    Has there been any official word on when the 20mm f/1.7 should start shipping? Would love to get my hands on one of those.

    I would add that it appearss that Wolf/Ritz has it at a number of stores. I should have mentioned that. I saw 2 on the shelf at the Charlotte, NC store when I handled the G1 there. I'm contemplating not buying it after all---I rarely shoot over 90mm so I'm going to wait and see how often I'll feel I missed something by not having it. I'm really much more interested in the 20 f/1.7 also---but, to answer forumla4speed's query---I don't think anyone knows except some Panasonic folks. The sooner the better to suit me.
