Re: Panasonic 100-400 Photo Show saga. Buyers warning.

Hi Phill, given the last I heard regarding Panasonic's service history or lack of regarding that lens I think you may have had a fortunate escape.

To refuse to repair or offer service for a lens of that price when it's out of warranty beggars belief. Ok, they do offer a replacement at a cost only slightly less than the full price but that is little consolation if the lens is only 2 yrs old. It's an item I seriously considered buying until I searched the web and discovered the facts.

Maybe they have changed their practice now as it's a while since I looked but frankly it put me off anything with a Panasonic name on it.
