    Just to remind any UK buyers who may be considering a purchase of a Panasonic G/GF/GH series that tomorrow is the last day to purchase to be able to get the 5 year warranty and Adobe Lightroom offer!

    I've been contemplating picking up a GF2 with the 14-42 and 14mm, partly to try and get a cheap 14mm.. but I'd probably end up keeping the lot!

    Will this offer be replaced with a different kind of offer... maybe cashback or something????

    The offer which came with my G3 (from Fotosense) was a copy of Elements 9 plus a 5 year warranty! Have to see what actually arrives! Doesn't matter as I've already got both.

    I received my copy of Adobe Lightroom 3, and the video dvd, and a week later they sent me another one. :)

    Is it too late to make a claim? I bought my GF2 a couple of weeks ago.

    No, as long as you bought it from an authorised reseller before 31 August you should be OK.

    Anyone besides Tinderbox received their copy of Lightroom yet? I sent my claim form in on 10th August and haven't heard a thing yet.

    Just heard from someone on another forum that theirs arrived this morning. They sent their claim form off a month OK. So maybe we will be lucky soon.

    I sent my claim form off on the 7th of July and received the 5year warranty via email within a week, but it took 30 days for my software/video to arrive.

    Mine went off on the 25th August, but I don't expect to hear anything for a while, if ever. Luckily I bought the camera on its merits, not for any freebies. That was not, and never will be, my motivation for buying anything.

    The 5 year warranty is useless. I don't expect to keep the camera for more than 2 years at the outside. Things will have moved on by then.

    I already own Lightroom, so it will be a "spare" copy. Very useful.
