    If you preorder the G80 you'll get the DMW-BGG1 battery grip for free.
    Infos here: Panasonic Promotions

    Is there any chance that EU or USA buyer will benefit from this?

    I'll be on vacation in California on October and plan to buy the G85 there (no recording restriction). Any cons about the US version as EU citizen? Besides the battery charger...

    Does the G85 offer all the frame rates commonly available on PAL cameras? If not, flicker issues with fluorescent lighting would be the obvious red flag of getting a US version.

    The terms and conditions are available at the promotion page you're referring to, there you'll find that "The Promotion is applicable to residents of the EEA, EU, Switzerland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man who are aged 18 years or over". You need to purchase from a "participating retailer", a list of which you can find on the same page.

    Been interested in purchasing from the UK for the same reason :)

    There is also a trade in deal with Jessops which has an £80 bonus on top of the trade in price.
    I did this with a G6 and got a great deal.
