Anyone know where it sells for less? I googled to no avail.

Here in the UK the "white box" version of the lens ...unboxed from camera kits - has always been cheaper than buying the standalone fully boxed version.  I think this started when the GF2 arrived as a kit with the 14mm lens..??     I have just bought an "unboxed from kit" version for £130 (whats that in dollars ? $200 ish ?) whereas it would cost me almost double for the fully boxed retail version...
