    Long term lurker, first time poster. I thought this might have been a pricing error, but I purchased last night and I got a confirmation for shipment this morning. $497 for the GX7 (which is the same as Amazon and Adorama currentl), but B&H also throws in a $100 gift card AND you get 4% rewards (to be received in the form of a gift card 40-60 days after date of purchase). So depending on your tax situation, it could be effectively as low as $377.

    My GF2 has served me well the last 3 years, but can't wait for this to arrive.

    A week ago I got what I thought was a pretty good deal on a used GX7. Now I just feel stupid. Not really, this is how it goes. Im glad to snag a good deal if it comes up, but you can't worry too much about it. The market is crazy, which is generally good for us as consumers.

    At $377 pretty much every m4/3s user out there who is considering a body purchase should be lining up, whether you are upgrading from an older body or adding an additional body to a higher end set up. Hell, I'm thinking about a second one myself, and that makes no sense...

    OP is going to have to change his username to "gf2foreveruntilthegx7fellbelow$400"

    Are the gift cards transferable? I'll sell it to someone for $95 and pocket the savings!

    Just called Adorama and asked if they can price match with the savings already included. I guess they're looking into it and will call me back in 30 minutes! I love the free market! :wink:

    Jonathan, please update, i'd love to have it for below 400, but i dont buy from bhphoto often, so giftcard is essentially useless for me.

    This might just be the deal for me. Almost bought it for $497 at Adorama but the same price with a $100 gift card!!! Will wait to see if Adorama matches or if perhaps they will go as low as $397.

    Do let us know. I tried to call but I keep being put on hold each time.
    I sent them an email so will see if I get a response.

    Ugh, that pricing is crazy in the US. I'm almost considering it as a Canadian, even though Panasonic won't honour the warranty up here.

    It's that, or buy used for $550 locally...hrmgh.

    I haven't received a call back, but I'm heading to the gym for a bit. Someone should try calling B&H and asking if they will automatically apply the gift card to the purchase of the GX7? I'm going to call both after my workout! :smile:

    The Canadian retailers up here still sell it for $749-799 body only. Plus 13% taxes...

    I bought a GX7 on the 8th from BH. They price matched Adorama's asking price of $497. I saw this today so I chatted with an online rep and they will be sending me the $100 gift card also... So awesome! I should have my gx7 tomorrow !!!

    That's a very sweet deal. If I didn't already have 4 cameras, I would buy a 2nd GX7... hehe

    Just chatted w/ BH online and they won't roll that $100 into the $497. Didn't think they would. Have not heard back from Adorama.

    thanks for the tip- ordered mine about an hour ago... amazing price

    No tax... no shipping cost... $100 back in card and 4% back in points for B&H and 1% back from my c-card effectively makes this camera cost me
    $372

    Pretty danged impressive...

    Checked B & H and the Pentax K-3 deal with the Pentax flash for $50 bundled with the body was back for a total cost of $846. What to do?
    I have more Pentax lenses than Panasonic /Oly lenses although can use the Pentax lenses on the Lumix cameras with an adapter. I have a Pentax 10-17 fisheye on backorder. I have 3 Pentax bodies and one Lumix body (although have a Lumix FZ20). I have wanted a K-3 for awhile but only started considering the GX7 recently. The K3 is weather sealed/resistant, not so w/ the GX7. The K3 has more megapixels. The K3 may do better w/ low light photography. Nonetheless, I decided to get the GX7. More cost effective, lighter in weight, no possibility of mirror flap problems, built in wi-fi. I've handled it at the camera store and was fine with it and I've seen some remarkable photos. Quite an incredible deal w/ the $100 gift certificate and 4% rewards plus the double warranty rebate from Panasonic.

    I would have preferred the black body but for this price the silver will do just fine.

    This is another great deal from B&H this holiday season.

    Someday I won't live in NY and can take advantage of these B&H and Adorama deals without paying crazy NY tax. Although by then, there will likely be a straight up internet tax on everything. :smile:

    Yes, this is frustrating for us Canadians. The landed cost of this camera is CAD$667. Then if I want to use the included gift card, it's another cost of shipping and customs clearance.
    Since I want the GX7 with the 20mm, even with two transactions and applying the $100 gift xard towards the 20mm, it's still within $20 of just buying everything locally. Even if it's used, it seems like less hassle. :(

    Great find, thanks! I couldn't resist getting one of these for my wife for Christmas to replace her GF3 that has been giving her some problems. Of course, now I will have to "borrow" it from her from time to time to shoot better video than I can with my E-M5!
