(IGNORE, Confusion) Panasonic 12-35mm f2.8 (M43rds) drops to $1200
All apologies for the confusion! I confused the price of the 35-100mm with the price 12-35mm, so this is actually not a discount! The 12-35mm was already at $1100. I was thinking of the $1500 price as a reference, thus creating the confusing illusion of a $300 drop from the starting price. Thanks to Joe for pointing it out in the comments!
The invisible hand of the market has chipped off another $100 from the price of the Panasonic 12-35mm f2.8 micro four thirds lens. As of the time of writing, you can get it for $1200 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself where it is eligible for the 2% Amazon Promotional Rewards (2% of $1200 = $24).
