(Updated) First price drops on the GH2 in US stores (body only for $859).

Share

UPDATE: Sold out!

Wow, the GH2 is finally in Stock in US and they already have the first $50 price drop on the GH2 with 14-140mm lens at Amazon (Click here). And for those of you looking for the body only option there is one third party dealer selling the camera for $899 at Amazon (Click here and scroll down to “Midwest” dealer). The body only option is also in Stock for $859 at eBay (Click here)…sold by US dealer!

P.S.: Those price drops are not realted with a possible GH3 release. I don’t expect the GH3 to be announced within 2011!!!

UPDATE: There is a 20% price drop on the GH2 at Amazon UK (Click here). That’s an interesting price for all European readers because it’s exactly 1.200 Euro and much cheaper than the best price I found in Germany (which is 1.430 Euro). Yes, you can buy it without any problem at Amazon UK even if you are not from UK!

Check price in other stores: Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

      No kidding!

      Could it be Guilt Pricing for forcing people to have to wait SO long to get one?

    Amazon.uk’s price is always fluctuating. I bought my GH2 a couple of month’s ago for around 1040£… fast shipping, outside the UK. plus, received a free 8GB Panasonic SDHC card 😉

    Seriously?
    It used to be 1$ = 1€, but GH2 price in Europe is over twice the price than in the USA….

    I’d be peeeed off if they release a GH3 in 2011 as it make us GH2 owners look like old used customers. Mind you trade in is an option but why would you need anymore than the GH2. The GH3 prob be more of a 3D camera with bigger sensor.

      I don’t understand. Would the introduction of a GH3 render your GH2 unusable in some way? I can understand this feeling if the GH2 was no longer updated or supported, but unless the GH3 were cheaper than the price you paid for the GH2, why would the introduction of an even newer product be a bad thing?
      And larger sensor is not an option in micro four thirds. Neither Panasonic nor Olympus could use an APS-C sensor with their current crop of lenses.

    Panasonic has been on a one year launch cycle for G1, GH1 and GH2. It wouldn’t be much of a surprise if they keep the GH2 current a while longer though. There isn’t much more competition now than it was a year ago, but that could change fast. Anyway, Panasonic probably want to introduce a new battery fairly soon so we might se a GH3 before too long.

      So when do you expect them to release the GH3 then (I’m asking this question of the blog author too)?

    I think they should put a little mor effort in getting production up and running so that there isn’t enormous demand for a camera no one can find… there’s technical release and functional release…. if no one can find the camera until around the same time you release a new camera, it’s sort of a functional dual release… I know the tsunami set everything back in a huge way, but these perpetually out of stock issues started long before that and for that matter before this camera body… Spend more effort on your production line and then go back fast development… Canon is the other end of the spectrum at ~18 month update release schedule… doesn’t seem to hurt them too much.

  • Looking at a 4/3 camera but the photoshop people keep talking me out of it. They say “the technology is not going to continue, only a fad.” What do you guys think?
