What a great deal!
Pretty impressive deal, considering that minty used ones without any sort of manufacturer's warranty are selling on ebay for the low to mid $800s nowadays. Too bad I don't want a camera that big and heavy.
It's at 850 now but I bought one anyways. Don't have any IS lenses in the stable these days though...may need to pick one up if this is a keeper.
If it was a pricing mistake they have apparently shipped some out.
Thanks but i must resist....
Panasonic authorized dealer, for those that care. Here comes the Christmas season!
IS is overrated. I very rarely miss it on any of my gear. Turn yours off on your current gear and go out shooting. I think that you'll be surprised how little it actually does, and it really drives home why much of the professional gear you see lacks it.
I half-agree. It's overrated, and you can work around not having it, but it's nice being able to shoot 1/5 second shots at night using a 50mm lens without having to use a tripod.
That's nice but this is a GH3. The IS is for video. I have a DSLR rig setup and I might try and combine that with digital IS in post but we'll see. May just stick to my A77 for hand-held/run and gun.
I'm going to use my GH3 mostly for stills. I'm going to use the heck out of the IS on my 12-35, 35-100 and especially my 100-300. However...I could manage it if IS never existed. I'd just need a better, smaller tripod. I might get one of those anyway.
I ordered yesterday night, it shipped today morning, and will arrive at my door in Baltimore tomorrow. I forgot how awesome Unique is.
I would definitely get it if their return policy isn't so scary
If you don't like it sell it. Why are you concerned with the price so low. What exactly are you afraid of finding out once you get it in your hands? I got mine in earlier today and I have to say if you are more concerned with stills stick with either of the omds can't say much about video yet. It's not a bad camera but the evf is pretty strange and not pleasant compare to the E-M1.
Btw I imagine once the hack comes out the video might be very improved and camera will retain great value if things follow the GH2 mold.
What an awesome deal. I am new to the forum and am really in need for a good camera deal. I try to check the forum as often as I can remember, but in case any hot deals show up, would appreciate it if anyone could message and inform me.
Here in the UK the price is £869 body only, which seems to mirror the OP,:although i dont know anything at all about this camera
It is quite a deal
If you convert £869 to USD it's almost $1,400 so I would say it's a very good deal.
