    See title. I don't really know the G-series cameras all that well but for a recent body with lots of features, that seems like a steal.

    Robert's was selling new G5 bodies for $239 on their eBay site a couple of weeks ago.

    Yes, but it only lasted a few days and then went back up.

    Just and FYI:

    I ordered one of these G5's last week and it never shipped. Just said "shipping soon". I had to cancel that order due to delayed delivery to my secondary address. Redid the order (to primary address) and now it's stuck in "shipping now" status. I'll give it a few more days................. :confused:

    My order says it's left the seller in Las Vegas. I had Prime and opted for 1-day shipping, won't get it until next Tuesday for some reason though.

    As I know Prime works for Amazon store only, not third party ones.

    Sorry, you are wrong, many third party sellers offer Prime shipping.

    That's encouraging................... I guess non expedited status/shipping is processed on alternate weeks. :eek:

    I ordered the G5 from Amazon Prime on the 13th and received it on the 15th without issue. It did take until the 14th for the G5 to be shipped, though.

    I ordered a G5 and a D5100 from Roberts over the last couple of weeks from eBay. The g5 was received in 3 days (Indiana to Colorado) and the D5100 was delayed by Roberts for 3-4 days before shipping. No problems with the packaging.

    FWIW, I finally got a "shipped" notice (Sunday of all days) for the G5. :smile:
