Via 4/3 rumors. I almost bought a new camera with this lens today. Any speculation on it being discontinued? I am hooping for a new version that does not have any problems.

Sometimes BH marks things as discontinued by accident so I wouldn't put too much stock into a new one being announced just yet. Usually it takes several years for a lens to see a replacement. It is very possible that Panasonic solved that issue I was hearing about though. Something about the lens giving slightly blurred shots at certain focal lengths because of shutter vibrations being transferred to the lens. That would be good news but I imagine the optical formula would remain the same.
