I bought this Lens from a USA dealer about a month ago but decided I was going to stick with the panasonic 14-140mm primarily for the size issue. It certainly is a beautiful lens. I basically took it out of the box and tested it out a couple of times in beautiful sunny california-- locally. It is basically brand new and I can send the sales ticket. It comes with the box and all that was included. 1099 shipped and paypal.
