    Seems like it was just yesterday this came out for $499.

    Same price at J&R now. Use coupon TURKEY10 to take $10 off making it $289.

    Hm... somehow the link is getting mangled when you click on it. Try cutting and pasting it.

    Same price directly from Panasonic now. If Panasonic is doing, I'd expect everyone to match.

    Thinking about getting one of these for my GF. She goes to a lot of concerts and wants something small that works well in low light.

    This isn't small. It's GF2 + 14mm sized.

    Ordered, thanks for posting this up. It's not too small, but much smaller than her super zoom which she hates lugging around. Besides, I'll have another camera to play with. What a great deal.

    I'd like to get one of these, but have a query on the video.

    Ordering into the UK from the US the camera will be the 30/60 fps version (compared to 25/50 for Europe). Does this mean the video will not play back here in England, on our TV equipment, or just that it doesn't meet broadcast standard or ... what ? I have no clue what these numbers mean.

    In the digital world, unless you're shooting with the intention of broadcast, that distinction is meaningless. Your digital TV in Europe will display a 60p signal just as well as my digital TV in the US will play a 50p signal. Digital TVs are just big monitors after all. They are all multi-resolution and multi-refresh rate. If it does bother you, there's a menu option to switch between NTSC/PAL.

    Short answer: don't worry, you can switch it to 25/50 in the menu.

    Thanks for the info, but just discovered Amazon won't ship this direct to UK. Will have to wait for the price drops over here

    Panasonic also has this at $299, I believe for Cyber Monday - maybe they ship to UK?

    It's $299 at B&H. B&H ships internationally. B&H is a very well respected vendor based in NY.

    I looked at B&H (have used them before) but the postage is making the deal less attractive. Will probably wait now for UK offers, maybe the New Year
