    Jesus... GX8 on EPP 999 with 3 year warranty. with cashback... this is way too good @.@ selling my GX7 will probably net me about 400 bucks out of pocket to upgrade. The size is the only thing that throwing me off... wonder if my good old GX1 can take care of my light weight need :(

    I signed up with Corporate Perks, but when I go from there to the Panasonic sight, I don't see EPP pricing.

    Somebody point out a current deal so I can verify this is working.

    Thanks, but I just checked and it only shows the $1499 sale price for the NOCTICRON.

    ???

    I'll try it from home and see if it works there.

    If you are eligible for the EPP pricing, once you login to shop.panasonic.com, you will be able to see EMPLOYEE PURCHASE PROGRAM on the top part of the page.

    Hmmm, my Panasonic EPP used to be pretty good, but I'm not getting any of those prices.

    Edit: I see them now, but had to use the link from my employer. I couldn't just log into my EPP account from panasonic.com like I used to be able to.

    Is your panasonic account using your work email address? If you use any other email address, the EPP does not seem to apply.

    Yeah it's my work email for the account. Work link just throws a ?tbdGROUPCODE tag to the panasonic.com site which makes the EPP prices show up. Going straight to panasonic.com with my work email doesn't show the good prices.

    I've tried going through the corporate perks site for the past month, and non of the special pricing shows up anymore? Is it dead or am I just not doing something right?

    Since signing up there a few years ago, I've made several purchases there and check the EPP pricing once every a couple of months or so. I just found the special pricing on lenses are gone. Can some you guys help to verify? There are some good discounts on bodies but they're also available to authorized dealers.

    Yes, they have adjusted the pricing up for now. I vaguely remember this happening around the same time last year. It definitely seems like a cyclical or seasonal pricing scheme that comes and goes. It will eventually come down again. Keep an eye on the site.

    You have to check back periodically as they vary deals from time to time. Less than a year ago, I got the 100-300 II for $425 and the 8-18mm for $800.

    The fluctuation of discounts is normal. This is the 1st time I've seen the site removes all the discounts on 100-400, 15mm, PL 42.5mm, etc.
