    The question is the 14-42x worth it. My only reason to get this is to keep the lens and sell the GF3.

    You can't lose with such price - you can get for the body at least 200 and later if you don't like the lens sell it for 300. win-win :biggrin:

    OOS. 287 sold. I missed it. Just as I finally decided to buy it, it went OOS.

    Wow, that was fast. When I placed my order, there was still 200 hundred available, but it was going fast, the qty was going down by the minute.

    Hopefully I'll get mine next week.

    This was similar to the GH2 they sold couple of days ago for $579. It is a grey market camera, bit it is brand new, so warranty might be an issue with Panasonic. But an awesome deal nonetheless.

    Yep. They even said that they can't say it comes with a factory warranty. That it comes with 1 year parts and something like 90 day labor.

    I'm so mad at myself for hesitating and missing it. It's just that I got both a LX5 and another NEX 3 just this week so I was feeling over camera'd. When will I learn my lesson. Buy first, think later.

    Wow....quite a deal. That GH2 deal earlier this week was also very tempting. My GF3X cost just a little bit more :( a month ago.

    Not sure buying one of these to resell the lens on the enthusiast sites is the best plan. Not unless you're willing to guarantee it doesn't exhibit the known issues at full zoom. With no Panasonic warranty, I'd think most enthusiasts won't be interested, even at $300 - Or you have to be rather ambitious and test/post photos in order to sell to enthusiasts. Am I wrong?

    Seems a much better plan to buy/resell on eBay - but clearly stating the warranty situation. Then you'd end up selling to someone like me, who wouldn't know of an issue and/or see it in my photos ;)

    FedEx just delivered it, and the battery is charging. Boy is this thing small, the GH 1 & 2 look huge next to this. Now I just need to find a good deal on a 20/1.7.

    Many people have reported receiving theirs. There was concern that it was grey market and thus no warranty. According to Panasonic, it has a full warranty for the next year.
