    Amazon lists shipping date with 14-42mm Sept 27 and body only Sept 30. But my experience with Amazon is that these dates are only a prognostication.

    Amazon tends to ship preordered items earlier than dated. On the other hand, lots of smaller dealers get stock before Amazon does.

    I work in a camera shop in Western Canada and my Panasonic rep said late September at the earliest...I guess we're not getting it earlier in Canada like the Sony RX100II but I'll keep ya posted.

    I really hate how camera companies announce products long before they are ready to ship :mad: just saying!

    Some companies are better than others, Sony JUST announced their A3000, yet are claiming it'll be available in a week or two.

    Apple generally announces products and they are available immediately.

    Panasonic doesn't have the best of luck with supply. (Panasonic GH3 and G6 took their sweet times to get to stores)

    I was told today at the store where I placed my order a while back to expect to see my camera the third week of September. The internet dealers will be receiving their shipments later. I had a chance to handle the camera with a variety of lenses. I feels just right to me. The size and weight are as close to perfect as any Panasonic camera I have handled to date. Not too much bigger than a GF1, but with a bigger grip and better control layout. It weighs a lot less than I expected. I think anyone who has ordered the GX7 will be delighted when their cameras arrive.

    Thank you very much to Giulio Sciorio with whom I spent about two hours learning about the GX7 and conversing about photography. Also thanks to Mark Toal of Panasonic and the all the folks at Kenmore Camera.

    The Nikon D600 was shipped like a week or two after announcement, the Canon 1DX was shipped like 8 months after announcement. It's all over the place even within one manufacturer, and obviously we as consumers are impatient, but they have their reasons.

    well i suppose it is made in japan afterall... so no surprises as to them having it first! haha...
    on a separate note, i just emailed my store where i pre-ordered... and they have advised me that having spoken with panasonic uk, they are anticipating it to be in the uk by second week of september... with customers to have hopefully by the third week..... but not 100% certain yet tho..

    If you want a Japanese market camera, better make sure you can read Japanese....

    Haha nope!! That's why I hate the GX7 :biggrin:

    Panasonic and Sony doesn't offer multi-language for their local units here. Although there are some International versions available...at a premium.

    I don't understand how these companys brains working. It doesn't cost more to put mulit-language setting in.
