    Recently Adorama had the G5 for $398 plus a $50 gift card. Today (?) the price went up to $579.

    Any insights here? Predictions? My friend was ready to order and then found the price had gone up! :eek:

    It will probably go back down. The price has fluctuated monthly for some time now. Keep an eye on Amazon and B&H too.

    And Adorama. They usually price the same, but have different stock at different times. One may be out, but other may have some.

    Thanks, all. Appreciate the input.

    Re: buying from eBay, if it is a NEW product, are there any downsides to buying from eBay?

    B&H has MORE than a decent deal. They're selling the G5 with BOTH the 14-42 lens and the 45-150mm lens for $448. Considering that the two lenses are selling for ~ $85 and ~$165 second hand, you're effectively getting the G5 body for around $200

    Rats. I wish I would have seen this a few days ago. I just bought a used G5 and a 45-150 in separate transactions for about $400.

    It's amazing how quickly the value of these Panasonic bodies drop. Both the G3 and the G5 are great values now.

    One thing to watch for is those deals with the 50 dollar gift card often Have the non bundled versions for 50 dollars cheaper once you put them in the cart. I got my g5 last week for 348 with lens. Saves you having to have your money tied up in the GC.
