    Not much deal since after X'mas. I just found a new Panasonic GX1 body is selling $ 222.99 @ eBay(buy.com):eek:, buy.com also authorized dealer, so there is no warranty issue, I just bought one for my self as 2nd body to my OMD:wink:, even I need to pay tax from CA, I still want one, I believe it is the lowest price I have ever seen, I guess even GX2 is coming out, but GX1 body won't sell below $199-249.

    I am always amazed at the prices you guys in the US are getting. In The Netherlands this camera is still about 450 euro (600 dollars) for body only. I bought one recently at Amazon UK for about 450 dollars, still nowhere near the US prices. Unfortunately importing from the US is often not an option as you get hit hard with import taxes and duties.

    That's very true! but I think we pay much higher personal tax here in the US, just my guess.

    The lowest price for the GX1 body from the big sellers(authorized dealers) are set at $319 as recently dropped about 2 weeks ago, somehow this buy.com(authorized dealer too) has this price on ebay, maybe it's price error, even though; I think they will honor the price.

    If you are talking income tax I doubt that very much...:) Our highest tax bracket is 52% and you really don't have to have a huge salary to reach that bracket...

    Great deal indeed!

    A GX-1 at $299 and the Sigma prime pair at $199. A great kit for $500. Terrific deal.

    We are as of January, certainly. :wink:

    I never begrudge our British cousins the occasional sale. I'm always amazed at the the prices when I'm in the UK, especially the food. Of course, maybe we'd be a bit lighter if we had to pay more for nibbling.

    I ordered one, then got an email saying they couldn't ship to me and cancelled. Went to site to reorder and it was $399. I think they are pulling a fast one with me!:mad:

    Amazon has the GX1 Body in stock for $319 with a 30 day standard return for Prime buyers. I got one and it's a great deal at that price.

    With m4/3 bodies, it's costly to buy them when they first are released and big $$$ savings to wait.

    I got it at the $229 price around noon EST. I received a confirmation email and so far no cancellation notice .... yet. Maybe it was a pricing error and they caught and cancelled the ones that were not confirmed by email. We'll see if they honor it for the rest.

    Assuming I get it this is going to replace my GF2 as my second body to my silver GX1.

    I ordered mine at around the same time. Got confirmation from them and paypal. Later a cancellation. I sent an email to them complaining. I guess Monday I'll find out.
