I purchased one of these when it was $999. Samy's offers great products. Mine had 45 or so actuations on it and was in brand new condition, as well as coming with the full year warranty. If yours hasn't arrived yet, snaimpally, you're in for a great unboxing moment.
Keep checking ebay if you are interested. Samy's has twice previously had an open box for $899 in the last week, before this listing. On Saturday, I had a chance to check the G9 out at a Panasonic event and decided to get it so I started checking Samy's eBay store every chance I could get. As soon as I saw the listing, I made my purchase.They are gone, but they now have a GX9 with kit lens for $697 via above link.
