    some people are having problem getting the 25mm lens for $449.99. if i go to pany site add to cart it shows 549.99 .when i remove it from cart click out of pany site ,start over it comes up $449.99.then the lightbulb came on i can do this with every lens i tried this on .what ever the price shows the first time remove from cart you must leave the pany site. go back to pany. add the same lens and its comes up. cheaper.

    scottyboy -- can you make the G3 appear lower than $449 body only or $524 with lens? I can't, but if I could get it lower, I'd pull the trigger.

    No magic formula for me. The 25mm PL 1.4 is $539.99 no matter how many times I remove it and add it. Using Chrome and Firefox browsers.

    Yes. I'm signed into my regular Panasonic account, I don't have a EPP account. Perhaps that is the reason ?

    Weird, it worked for me too. I have no special account, just created it yesterday. I would be inclined to think it's a bug rather than a trick. This site has been very flaky.

    The site is having problems, but it is stuck at $539, no matter what I do. I think it is funny, at this point it is more a challenge to see if I can get it for the lower price.

    heres the prices i'm getting - [25mm 449.99], [45 -200mm-262.46], [7 - 14mm -825.00], [14 - 140- 637.46], [14mm-300.00], [14 -42 mm power ois 299.96 -backordered], [100- 300mm 449.96] ,[45 - 175mm 337.46], [45 mm elmarit mega iso 674.96].i think these are all on the 2nd trip in.but i could have missed one.once you have the low price you can check all the lenes at the same time 'you don't need to x out for each lens.works for me all day no probs.

    Okay, I finally got it to appear at $449, and then upon starting the checkout procedure it went back up to $539. LOL...guess it isn't meant to be.

    Did anyone actually purchase it for $449 in the past day or so ?

    i'm the opposite i think thats panasonics way to make a few xtra $.you go in lens already marked down so unknowingly buy.or buy a camera want a xtra lens oh look their on sale also ,buy.the price on the lenes have been marked at disscount.i think the price i'm getting is the black fri. price.but then i'm not the most trusting person in the world.

    Panny may have the most annoying site out there. And they just "upgraded" it.
