“free” GF3 on top of the ranks!


For the price of the 14mm pancake lens you get almost a free GF3. That’s why this camera kit is ruling the Amazon Ranking (Click here to see). This are the deals we need to expand the m43 system. Wish I could found some of them in Europe too!

P.S.: GX1 with zoom lens for $519 again at Amazon (Click here).

    Actually the GF3 devalues the lens. At Camera World they have the GF3 and 14mm f2.5 lens on sale for £249. The 14mm lens on its own is being sold for £279.99.

  • Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 is only $40 of the original price and is currently #2 among the Amazon CSC best-sellers. Considering that 8 out 20 products in the best-sellers list is made by Panasonic the sales appears to go well.

    Excellent price considering it started at almost 1000.

    In this serious shop in Norway you now get the GF3 with the 12.5 3D lens, 14mm Pana, 30mm Sigma and Lightroom for about 500Euro. Not a bad price.

    About 2 months ago, I bought here in Vienna an Olympus E-PL1 with 14-150 mm lens for 360 €. The lens alone is more expensive as well. This was my start into mFT (just waiting a bit before I will buy the E-M5. And the 45 mm Zuiko. But have now also the 20 mm Pana-Pancake and love it…)

    It confirms how much money is made on lenses …

    OT: Admin, it seems I can’t display the mobile version of 43rumors or mirrorlessrumors anymore on my iPhone: is this intentional or a temporary bug? The same thing happened also on sonyalpharumors a while ago.
    The full site is quite slow and awkward to navigate on a mobile, whereas the previous version was very handy, legible and quick to load. I didn’t find any link to choose the mobile version. I hope this change is not permanent as these 3 sites are my daily favorites, worthy of their permanent Safari tab in my phone! Great content!

    Actually 2 weeks ago I bought in Italy a GF3 with 14mm for 299euros with 59% discount… so also in Europe it is possibile to have GF3 for “free” ;)

    • Kenneth

      Have the same problem.

    • fabio

      where did you buy it?

    @Admin – I have just /found/ a quirk of the new design: if one disables the annoying WordPress(?) toolbar on the top, one can’t log-in into the site back when the log-in expires. AND can’t enable the toolbar back to log-in. Any chances of bringing back the old style log-in box? Sorry for the bother.

    On-topic. In Germany there is no GF5 kit with the 14mm. WTF? GF3 – yes. But the GF5 has only one kit – kit with the 14-42 X. GF5 could have been an impulse buy few weeks ago when it became available here – if it were the 14mm kit. Panasonic, I am disappoint.

    I was looking to find a way to login however after the change I do not have an option like that at all! Can you please let me know how am I going to login ?

    Oh what the heck. Been wanting the 14mm lens anyway. Ordered. If nothing else, it’ll give me a camera I don’t care much what happens to.

  • Will

    Considering you can get brand new 14mm lenses from just about anywhere for $150-170 it’s not exactly free. I picked up a 14mm for my em5 off ebay for $155 brand new.

    @admin, is the mobile theme active? I seem to be getting only the desktop version of this site the past few days on my andoid phone…

    • beautemps

      Admin is today setteling to the wild lonesome Pyrenees. There are heavy thunderstorms and if he isn’t engaged in arranging his stuff, the GSM-Connections might broke down.:-)

  • I know this is not the correct post however I thought you may want to check some firework photos with OM-D E-M5! I am amazed what this camera can do!
