    If you haven't noticed the price on body and kit has been dropped $100. I got Amazon to credit me $100 immediately.

    Just makes this camera an even sweeter deal.

    How did you get Amazon to credit you? It looks like I was billed the original price, mind had already shipped before the price drop hit :(

    I think if the price drops before it ships you can get them to credit. Not sure if you have already accepted delivery at that price.

    Dang, Amazon are awesome -- I sent a support request by email asking about the situation, and got a response (and a promise that a refund would be credited!) within 20 minutes! Thanks to Kshiz for letting us know about the price drop :)

    The E-P5 and kit also dropped, albeit only $50, both on Amazon and Olympus.com. Hopefully it turns into a price war between the GX7 and E-P5.

    I wrote Amazon about the price drop and not wanting to lose my spot in line for the pre-order and they credited me. Fingers crossed they ship today.

    B&H also credited me on my preorder

    Sent from my SPH-D710 using Mu-43 mobile app

    anyone's ship from Amazon yet? I'm worried changing my order to reflect the $100 may have kicked me out of place in line, even though I specifically asked them not to. It made me place the order again it looks like.

    FYI - for those members in the CA Bay Area, Fireside in the city was it in stock and offers the reduced pricing until October 12th. I handled it this weekend and called about the price drop today. I'm holding out on the black showing up later but the price drop is making it hard.

    I can't believe people are stupid enough to think that a $100 "discount" is anywhere near good enough to buy this camera/lens when it will be 50% of the price in 6 months. The frailty of the human brain! Mine arrives tomorrow :p

    Classic.

    I do wonder how this price point will age. Should be more like a GH than a G, but time will tell.
