    Make sure you test it thoroughly once you receive it- I've not had great luck with Amazon Warehouse deals (mostly items coming DOA). Thankfully the return policy is simple, but I hope you don't have to use it! I love my G9.

    Thanks, I haven't bought from the warehouse before but I've had good luck with other such purchases.

    Bah, it's no longer available. I really need a new body so that I can send my GX8 in for repairs before the warranty expires in January. Hopefully there will be a good sale this week.

    Keep checking back. I've been watching it for the last day or two, and stock gets periodically refreshed.

    As someone who has no need for a camera as good as the G9, I have zero regrets splurging for one when they had a crazy trade-in rebate a few months ago. I say if you can make it work financially, DO IT :laugh1:

    My budget for this sale weekend is for a new camera, an OLED tv, and perhaps a dog... my credit card is going to love me, lol.

    There is an "open box" G9 at Samy's Camera on Ebay store for $999. I bought one a month ago when it was $1,099. When I checked the shutter count it said 42. It seemed like brand new to me.

    Here is a link to it: Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 Mirrorless Micro 4/3s Digital Camera Body (Open Box) 885170328679 | eBay

    I have received two "open box" items from them. The G9 and a lens. They are open box and have stickers on them that say so. But the items appeared like brand new to me, so they hadn't been used much. I actually ordered a 12-35mm from them today as open box.

    Hmm, I’ll have to call and see if they’re able to ship to an APO address. Their website says they use fedex and normally only ship to the 48 conus states.

    Good luck with that. Samy's is a very reputable brick and mortar local to me and I would have jumped on this one if I hadn't snagged the one on Amazon.

    I received the the G9 last night. It looks like a new camera, no visible blemishes or signs of abuse. Shutter count is 3400 so it hasn't been used to much. Everything seems to be AOK. While it is bigger than the EM5 II it feels great in my hands. It's about the size of my old Nikon D50, my first DSLR. Updated the firmware to the latest (it was one rev behind). Also updated my 42.5/f1.2 to a newer rev. I think I'm going to like this camera, a lot! The evf is gorgeous.

    I’ve got one in route as well. Didn’t get a response from samys e-bay email contact, so ended up going for the slightly more expensive, but still on good sale, adorama purchase. They were a snap to get ahold of via chat to make sure that they could ship it to a military post box.

    Mine has arrived from Amazon not without its share of drama. Not well packed, missing all paperwork, and the strap I will never use. Haven't had the chance to check the shutter count, the good news is that the camera appears to be fully operational.
