I broke my newest lens yesterday my 8-18mm Leica DG. H-E08018 1 by Alf Branch, on Flickr Well this lens cost me £850 but as Panasonic have not set up a repair route they wil generously replace it for about £700. That is if you think that is generous. This what they said I am sorry but there is no route at present to repair this lens We can provide an exchange price of approximately £550 + vat + carriage. If you wish to proceed with this please log on line at www.dkavs.co.uk and send the lens in to us. We will provide a more accurate estimate and when paid the replacement lens will be ordered and sent to you after arrival here.
