    Ordered a G5 at the weekend direct from Panasonic e- shop after a tip off from member ShrubMonkey on another thread with regard to discount code LLNGW398 (used at checkout)
    This discounted a black G5 body to £423.00 !!! (Down from about £595)
    Wasn't sure if the code would actually work but lo and behold It arrived today !!
    Many thanks ShrubMonkey - wouldn't have known otherwise

    Ergonomics on the G3 were not an issue for me personally but having said that the G5 is a great improvement - the 'acid test' being how it handles with the 14 - 140 which it passed with flying colours
    The contoured grip is very comfortable and much more DSLR like
    The camera is much more secure when held in one hand

    Looking forward to using he camera when time permits loving it so far !

    The deal is supposedly only for UK Lumix Lifestyle members. Perhaps the honourable thing to do would be to sign up there and partake in their forums. Yes, I got my G5 through the offer (great price) and yes, I'm a member there and now a more active member as apparently other deals appear from time to time.

    The discount code is no longer valid though.

    I am a member of LL having bought several Panasonic LUMIX G products in recent years
    Howver I didn't realise that the code was linked to LL
    Shame the offer is now apparently closed

    Me too. You'll never guess who I am on there (or any other forum for that matter)... :rolleyes:

    I went ahead and deleted from Deals forum since you say the deal is over...

    Thanks, I was advised of the offer on another site, glad you got in before it ended. Also glad I didn't wait, for the money it was an easy decision.
