awesome, thanks for the tip! Just got a Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 from adorama's ebay store for $295 out the door, complete with the 4 year sigma warranty. That's a steal in my opinion!!

I bought a Panasonic DMC-GX85KK with two lenses - 12-32 and 45-150 , from Focus Camera, an authorized dealer, for $499 after the ebay discount . Have been wanting a proper 4K video camera without a 30 min recording limit for a long time, and this looks like it will fit my needs. Too bad Pentax couldn't deliver something that worked for me in the video area.

Let me add my thanks for posting this. I just used it and saved $100 on a ham radio I have been considering.

I've heard it's an outstanding camera. I have the tiny Panasonic GM-1 and love it but wish it had a built-in EVF and in-body image stabilizer like the GX85. The 12-32 is an awesome lens, very sharp and compact, love the wide angle though the telephoto end is a bit short. It's sort of like the M4/3 equivalent of the DA 16-45 but with a bit less reach. Watch out for a well-known mechanical flaw in the 12-32 kit lens, though, where the zoom ring comes loose and eventually falls off. People online have used double-sided tape to repair this. I was lucky to have a free extended warranty on the lens so it's currently with Panasonic for repair of this zoom ring problem. Anyway, enjoy shooting with your new camera, and yes, that's an excellent deal you got! Way to use the full extent (max $100 off) of the 20% coupon!

Of course, now you'll have LBA in two systems. I strongly recommend the Panasonic-Leica Summilux 15mm f/1.7 prime lens. It is a beautifully constructed lens that works wonderfully in low light and has great rendering and sharpness. Gives a nice walkaround field of view perspective, sort of like the DA 21mm but faster aperture. After that lens, you should get the Panasonic 42.5 f/1.7 - really sharp, compact, and great value.

I suppose this discount is good for multiple items?

EDIT: Code only works for a single item, so do you diligence!

Saw this on ebay website.. Got a DA35 Macro from Adorama. Was thinking of buying a used copy for some time but new with the discount coupon came out better than a used copy given they will also honor the warranty and that is new.

The code only works once. With multiple accounts oh well...

Great deal

I just bought a DA 15MM Limited for $374. What a great deal, was already on sale then $93 off. Wanted one before retiring this summer.

Nope, you can use it for a single "cart", so add stuff to cart, then checkout once. I bought about a dozen items from 9 different sellers all at once.
