Thanks a lot for the link, will look into that, but my understanding is that these sellers are quite "grey market" , and sometimes send from HK and you have to pay quite a bit of import tax (but didn't look in details)

Ah..grey is very likely of course. But I always look into where they are based and it is not Hong KOng in several cases (I think none). So it is mainly a grey market thing or may be a boxed version (GM5 and 15 mm f1.7) which got seperated. I am happy with the greymarket when the difference is over 140 euro (500 vs 360). Is yours, at 406 euro, official and not greymarket? because t that price I would have had zero doubts as to what to chose.

Mine is indeed greyish as well I think. But came in the box with everything, warranty paper in Chinese, but didn't pay any extra on reception, so I'm ok with it

But for price comparison between countries, I would use more prices on Amz or other major retailers.
