    I noe this has been discussed before, plz bear with me ya folks!

    i m planning of getting a G3 from PD, but heard that the shipping is lousy, just wanna ask those deals with PD, if i were to get the UPS second day, will they ship accordingly? because i will stay in US only for a month, reading previous thread on preorder G3 with PD seems unlikely i can get it in a month without paying the shipping fees, perhaps i should just get one from amazon but $90 difference? I wanna save up that bucks to get memory card and case for my g3 :)

    Thanks ya all for helping! gettin more n more addicted to this forum ^^

    Regardless of the method Panasonic Direct ships, it won't benefit you any if they do not have the inventory to fulfill your order.

    You may want to place the order with PD and if the camera is not received within a few days of your departure cancel with Panasonic and order from Amazon (Hopefully they will have inventory).

    I am still awaiting my pre-order which was expected for delivery in June.

    Here's a suggestion... order from Panasonic Direct. If you don't get the camera a week before you leave, cancel the order and then order from Amazon.com with next-day or two-day delivery. Amazon is very good with shipping. On the other hand, how badly to you want the camera to use before you leave the U.S.? How much is your time worth?

    EDIT: I see I was posting at about the same time as IIGQ4U. So the OP has two suggestions for the same strategy. BTW, I cancelled my G3 order from PD less than an hour ago after waiting two months. I hope everyone else who is waiting receives satisfaction quickly.

    Wouldn't it be a riot if, after cancelling my G3 order around lunchtime today, I got home from work tonight and found a package at my door?

    welp, that's a good sign I suppose. Is your online status updated to reflect anything new?

    Anyone else order from panasonic direct get theirs? What was your time frame in ordering?

    I'm pretty sure the G4 will be out by the time mine ships from PD.

    nope..it doesn't even say delivered. Pretty pathetic. I'm surprise there's not a lot more posts about this camera. I know people have started getting theirs.
