    GH3 probably close at hand...also that is a great deal on the GH2. I think it may be time to get one.

    That is a really good deal.

    Their math seems terrible though. $899.95 - $150 = $599.00??? :rofl:

    NAB show is going on in Vegas this week. Looks like the Panasonic press conference is tomorrow (the 17th). Possible GH3 announcement....

    A good sign, but it's still not low enough to drop into impulse buy zone for me. Not when I'm also eagerly following GX1 and EM5 prices..

    The GX1 body only is $530 at Panasonic with EPP.

    I wonder if that's an error, as everythingsablur pointed out, the math is awfully wonky at double the indicated discount.

    If anyone is looking I have a GH2 14-140mm kit for sale here at $1,100. Even at BH with their discount, with a 14-140mm it is $1,250.

    They're not supposed to advertise discounts beyond the advertised ones. That's why the price only drops to $600 when you add it to your cart. So no, I don't think it's a mistake. Basically, Panasonic is giving a discount, but they're choosing to sell it for even less. It's fairly common as many manufacturers now have MAP (minimum advertised price) agreements to help keep smaller sellers happy (prevent large chains from advertising lower prices).
