    What type of listing is this?

    For Sale

    What are you trying to sell/buy/trade?

    New Panasonic GM5 Incl. 12-32mm Japanese version

    What are your prices?


    Where are you located?


    Where are you willing to to ship?


    Ok, I messed this one up: Bought a brand new GM5 with the black 12-32mm kit zoom lens through Amazon from Japan. The description was wrong, turned out to be the version with Japanese menu only. I bought a US version, but returning the one to Japan got forgotten over a change in jobs and a move to the other side of the country. So, I want to see if anybody here has any use for it.

    The camera has only been turned on to check the menu, everything else unused. It is the red version and comes with the black 12-32mm kit lens which I use more than I expected on my own version. BUT the menu is ONLY in Japanese and the box does not include the little flash that comes with it in the US.

    The price is set to what I would have paid after re-stocking fees and returning postage to Japan; in includes shipping and Paypal in the US (everywhere else, actual shipping minus $15).

    Open to offers; the only trade I would consider at this time is a good version of the Panasonic 100-300 zoom.

    One more thing: because of travel I will not be able to ship it before Feb 15, so this is more a 'feeler' right now.

    Payment accepted

    Regular PayPal (fee included in price)

    Shipping method

    USPS Priority

    Shipping charge


    Handling time

    2 weeks - see text

    I have read and agree to the Buy and Sell rules.

    Just out of curiosity, have you tried updating the firmware with a US firmware? (if this is even possible) I just wonder if the firmware update would change the menus.

    Interesting thought, I may just try it out on the weekend.
