I have a friend who has been trying to find a GH2 to purchase with no luck. Where in the USA might they be available?

I got VERY lucky and just happened to stroll into a store in San Diego that happened to have it when I was already considering it. The store was:

Nelson Photo Supplies
1909 India Street, San Diego, CA
(619) 234-6621 ‎

I believe the person I dealt with was Nancy. I'm certain that they'd ship it if they have it in stock. When I bought mine, she said her other store had it in stock too. At the time, I bought the last one that store had in stock (along with their last 20mm 1.7!). She said that they intended to try to keep them in stock.

Cheers-
Jeremy

Samy's, also in Southern Cal, also seems to usually have a few. Don't trust the web though - call them. I saw that they had some with the 14-42 in stock, but called to make sure - turned out they didn't but they had the 14-140 which is what I wanted to try anyway. The guy said they get 'em in and sell 'em so fast the web can't keep up since they don't do real time updating. But despite widespread lack of availability I found one the day I decided I wanted it and had it a couple days later...

I got mine last week from Hunt's Camera. They have several stores in the Boston area.
Can order online from them too.

Backordered for me

I'm getting my GH2 directly from Panasonic. I was told by the rep that they are backordered for 2-4 weeks right now.

I don't know much about EPP except a Google search shows it to be an employee purchase program. I don't know any employees of Panasonic.

panasonic EPP is the way to go if you don't mind waiting. You can't beat $675

My co has a partnership with Panasonic. I understand that Panasonic honors the same EPP price through their facebook account. I don't know what facebook is or how it works but you can try.

My friend phoned Hunt's and was impressed by their friendly, knowledgeable response. He left them his credit card number and expects shipment of a GH2/14-140 next week.

Thanks again all for the tips.
