    I think this is the cheapest I've seen anywhere for a brand new one. I know Roberts had open box ones available on Amazon, however being in Canada, I like the option of having the duties and taxes being paid up front and I think Adorama and B&H are the only retailers to offer it:

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 Camera Body, Black DMC-GX1KBODY

    Just ordered it as an upgrade to my beloved GF-1, couldn't resist at this price.

    $239 is a very good price.
    I bit the bullet when it was $249 a couple of weeks ago.

    I bought from Adorama which used Fedex to ship it to Ontario and charged me HST upfront. Shipping was very fast without delay by customs.
    In comparison, B&H uses Purolator for shipping but their handling fee to charge HST upfront is higher than that of Fedex.

    In case any Canadian buyers are interested.

    What's up with the Adorama shipping?

    If I buy a GX1, Fedex shipping to Canada is about $15.

    If I buy a Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 20 (which I want), the shipping is $30 UPS and Fedex is about $71. (on a $54 bag).

    Makes no sense to me. You'd think they'd want to make some money on the shipping for a camera they are clearly not making a lot on. Unless that Think Tank ships in a huge box!!!
