Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 lens price !

I paid $899 at PhotoVillage for my Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 back in December and now it is listed for $1,299.99 ! I see on ebay most sellers have them listed for around $1,300.

Yes, the price on the GH2 coupler is 4X it's original price on Ebay. Many things associated with the GH2 are high. The 20mm pancake I paid $349 for is now as high as $450 or more.

Ive seen GH2 kits that cost $500 or more than their original price. It's pretty bad out there.

That's not bad. I got my Nokton from Photo Village, as well, but at the time I got it I saw a stock Nokton sell for $1700 on eBay. I *almost* considered selling mine for a profit and getting on the waiting list again. Some guy on craigslist here just posted an ad looking to rent a GH2 because he wants to buy one, but it's not available anywhere. Jeff, at one point I almost bought the 20mm, and at the time it was about $300 on Amazon.

Wow, things really are bad. I was just looking today to buy a 20mm pancake for the GH1, and can't find a reasonable one anywhere. I thought maybe it was just your usual Panasonic supply problem, but it seems much worse than that as I browse B&H's Panasonic stock . . . either out-of-stock or significantly more expensive than just a few months ago.

Corey, I hate to admit it, but the 20mm pancake is worth every penney at even $500, which I wouldn't pay, of course, but it is that good. I have used a couple comparable, and the 20mm is really one heck of a lens. The more I use it the better I like it.

I have seen two pop up in the classifieds here at good prices, so maybe you'll find some luck there.

I saw some online for $499, but it just pains me when I used to see them for $379 . . . but you may have talked me into it :)
