    Jonathan,

    Thanks for mentioning the link and sale. I recently ordered one of the GH3s Samy's has offered and it arrived yesterday. I haven't had a chance to work with it yet, but it looks brand new, absolutely mint, as the listing described it. I purchased it as an alternative to the GH4 primarily to begin learning about video and whether it fits into my photography needs before making a more significant investment. I don't know if this recommendation might be useful to buyers unfamiliar with Samy's (I had purchased a G3 from them previously,) but they provide good products with good communication and are offering, I think, a pretty capable camera for a reasonable price.

    Thanks again.

    Robert

    I want to go to the Samy's right now just to see everything they have.

    If you want to buy local, this is the time to do it. They'll price match any brick'n'motar store as long as you bring a print copy or web link of a particular item. Though I'm not to fond of Samy's restocking fee, so it's best you buy knowing exactly what you want!

    They will match the price but, of course, apply tax to that unless perhaps it's one of the items that they are offering tax free. There are several items right now that they are offering with an instant tax rebate.

    Hi,
    I just noticed that Samy's has reduced the price of the GH3 open box camera to $549 on eBay. Here's the link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Panasonic-L...741890?pt=Digital_Cameras&hash=item27f2c55002

    As I mentioned earlier, I purchased one of these and it was exactly as described.

    If you've been thinking about a GH3, this might be a great chance to pick one up in mint condition for a competitive price.
