Finally in Stock with the normal price $900! Sold at amazon via two third party resellers (ABT and DBROTH).
Click here to check it out: Panasonic GF1 with 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Lens
I was also told that the Panasonic 20mm lens will be in Stock in most US shops by the end of February!
P.S.: For europeans. There are no big deals on the Panasonic GF1. If you find one please send me an email. Anyway I noticed that Pixmania has the lowest price in most european countries.
UPDATE: I recieved following two mails:
1) “Hey I thought you might like this. I just preordered the 20mm lens through Panasonic direct which list the lens on back order. On the confirmation email they sent back they listed the estimated ship date of 3/10”
2) “I ordered a GF1 kit w/ 20mm lens two days ago (Feb 10th). Delivery estimate was March 3 – 10. So 3-4 weeks. Just got this email:
“Hello from Amazon.com.
We are writing about the order you placed on February 10 2010 (Order# xxxx). The item(s) listed below will actually ship sooner than we originally expected:
“Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 12.1MP Micro Four-Thirds Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera with LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Lens”
Previous estimated arrival date: March 03 2010 – March 04 2010
New estimated arrival date: February 18 2010″
So it looks like they are shipping out much faster than the “usually ships in 2-4 weeks” estimate they have on the page.”
