    Newegg has the G3 available to ship now in 3 colors. Newegg.com - dmc-g3 Free shipping and at regular retail not the inflated we got it first people on the Amazon marketplace.

    I just ordered mine. This will be my first Micro 4/3 camera. In fact it'll be my first interchangeable lense camera. Everything I've been reading is saying this camera is probably a great place to start.

    i've sworn i would never get anything from newegg again. they tend to sell and not say things are refurbished. but then again g3 is new so there's no way this could be one. i'm still waiting for my preordered from panny.

    I've bought from Newegg for so many years. I've never had them sell me a new item as refurbished. I'm not saying it hasn't happened, just hasn't been the norm for me.

    But not: "Body Only".
    When are the Body only pre-orders going to be shipped to these merchants?

    Thanks for the welcome. Just an update newegg sent me a tracking number. I'm in California but they shipped it from their New Jersey warehouse.

    It appears that Panasonic Direct is ready to ship more. Friend had her CC charged today. BTW 17th St photo has G3 in stock at normal prices from their site or at least it did Saturday. I cancelled my black body only from PD and ordered a brown kit from Kenmore Camera in WA and received it Saturday. I am happy with the brown and very happy thus far with G3. Size is right for me, handling is lovely, IQ looks good but until LR upgrades I'm not going to fiddle with RAWs. I'm shooting RAW + jpeg but so far mosty shooting to get familiar with it. Lots of pluses over G1 and GF1.

    NO, all listed places, 17th Street, Newegg, Crutchfield, Kenmore, Panasonic Direct are "Pre-Order"...That means "Out-Of-Stock" I just checked minutes ago...

    At the time of my post, I had just placed an order for a black, body only G3 at Crutchfield after receiving an email from them notifying me that it was in stock. Looks like they ran out pretty quick.

    No matter, I just pre-ordered at Panasonic Direct as a "Club Panasonic" member for $509.99... but, it is still a waiting game... Canceled my Adorama Pre-Order for the $599.99 price..

    I did the same, getting the $509 plus tax plus very minimal shipping from Cub Panasonic. Have been reading a number of reviews and they are all mostly possitive. It sounds like the in-camera jpeg processing is very good, with the ability to fine tune it as well. They are to some degree marketing it as a "photojouranlist" camera, so seem to have concentrated on producing good images right out of the camera. It sounds like the ideal camera for me.

    this is strange. ordered thru epp panasonic as well. just called to cancel my order (change of heart due to waiting for olympus stuff). then they told me it shipped yesterday. will get here after the holidays (7/5). i guess i'll keep it...lol

    anyone else get their order yet from panasonic directly? they must have shipped out all their preorders before olympus even tomorrow? to make sure they don't cancel.

    Well, I just ordered the Body, So no shipping it out yet. :frown:

    I guess they want to sell a lot of KITs first, then ship the Body Orders next...
    Oh Well.... :confused:

    Just called Panny Direct.

    The G3 body only ($509.99) is in stock, but takes 48 hours to process the order before the Warehouse gets the Order for Shipping. :2thumbs::2thumbs:. SO for me, that means by Thursday Evening (6-30-2011), it may be shipped out. :2thumbs::2thumbs: And I have 2 day Delivery, so I can have it on Saturday the earliest..
