I just ordered from Samy's Camera http://http://www.samys.com the new Panasonic LX5 in stock now for $489.00..disregard price on site once you put item in cart price goes down. It will be delivered tomorrow. I can't wait. I've been staying on top of the release of this camera here in the US and this is the 1st time it's showed up as available and ready to ship. Amazon still shows it as pre-order only. I know many of you also desire this camera and would love to hear more about it once you too have it. I think the combination of the micro 4/3 GF1 and the LX5 will be killer!
