Panasonic 100-400 to be discontinued?
5

After a fantastic month of shooting with this lens in Africa, it failed. The focus mechanism seems to be broken. I sent it off to Panasonic for repair, and was shocked to find out that they no longer carry the parts to repair it. (After being on the market for a mere 18 months). They are still selling it on their website, and offering a 3-year warranty (I don't know how that works if they can't repair it), but it is now being offered at a somewhat reduced price. My assumption is that they will discontinue. Anyone out there heard anything different?
