    Hi,
    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.
    Enjoy!

    On the DPR there was a event where new G9 with grip, 12-60, and 200mm f/2.8 with 1.4TC was selling for about $2900. What's the deal with the G9 selling for so cheap?

    Thanks Robert! 6 years ago I bought an open box GM1 from Samy's via ebay so I am familiar with Samy's. Can't wait. Given the size, I was surprised at just how much I liked the G9 when I tried it. It is quite lightweight despite the size and the ergonomics are superb.

    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.

    Hi again,

    I agree about checking frequently. The cameras were listed toward the end of last year and sold out, listed again, until I purchased mine. There could be another entering the cycle soon or maybe not for a week or more. I wrote Samy's to ask if more would be listed and was told to watch later that day, which I did and was glad to find it re-listed. I, as snaimpally has, purchased previously listed open box items, all of which were like new and carrying full-year warranties. Not one disappointed, so I too would recommend watching for the next appearance.

    The one thing that I noticed about the G9 is that the touchpad AF is laggy compared to the G7 / G85.

    This reviewer noticed it also:
    Hope that gets fixed in firmware soon!

    I *love* touchpad AF!

    G9 deal was only at a UK photo event. Two threads mentioned it on dpr.

    Sorry for the late reply. It was a camera show event in the UK somewhere. There were some talk about it on the DPReview forums.
