    The price of the GF3 body is the same as GF3 + 14mm @ $229. Makes no sense.

    Meanwhile, looks like I got another 14mm coming. I love that tiny thing.

    I've seen that happen a couple times with these Amazon lightning deals, it seems a bit fishy. One second I can't even see the deal price and literally one second later it's completely sold out...

    Panasonic just posted a $7 billion loss so I guess they need to increase sales...

    Me too. Weren't the recent deals with lens(es) better? I thought it was $359 body with short zoom.

    I got into my cart within 2 seconds. Once I saw $400 for body only, I cancelled out. It seems a lot of others are doing the same. Was at 81% claimed, at 9:17pm EST 43% claimed. I think body-only will go for around $300 once the G6 comes out in July. Patience...Patience...

    That's exactly what I did.

    BTW: Looks like more people are bailing out. Now down to 33% claimed as of 9:45pm EDT.
