    Not sure if this has been posted yet, but I just purchased a G3 from Wilkinsons Cameras on their eBay store for £229, and is eligble for the Panasonic £50 cashback scheme, bringing it down to £179. Also, on their website, it states that you can also get the 3 years warranty with Panasonic too (though this isn't stated on the eBay listing, I'm sure it must apply to that as well).

    I used to have a G3 but my brother "borrowed it" and hasn't given it back since! So I've been using my GF-1. Just bought this for (what will be) £179 and sold my GF-1 via gumtree today for £180 (body only) - £1 profit, more than I expected.

    There were 5 available from the day before yesterday and only one left now, thought I'd share it.

    Update

    They've run out on eBay but they appear to still have stock on their website, and it also confirms on the page that you'll receive both the 3 years warranty and £30 cashback.

    Thanks for sharing this deal.
    The website is now saying only £30 cashback from Panasonic.
    I wonder why this has changed?

    very strange, perhaps they had some sort of quota?

    I think it's mistake by Wilkinsons. The £50 offer from Panasonic was only for the kit with lens. Body only is £30. Incidentally, they've got another eBay auction for a G3 and it still shows the £50 discount.

    I think either way they'll have to honour the difference right?

    so I contacted them and they informed me that it was a mistake on the listing, but out of good faith can offer either a £20 partial refund, or they can send out a DMW-BLD10E battery (which apparently retail at ~£60). I'm thinking to go with the latter...

    Wilkinson is my local camera shop ... I'll pop round next time and see what's in stock.
