$20 off on the GM1. First impression by Dpreview.

There is already a first small $20 price drop on the brand new Panasonic GM1 at Uniquephoto (Click here).

And dpreview shared their first GM1 impression:

Panasonic clearly believes there’s a demand for an extremely small camera with a very large sensor and interchangeable lenses, and with the GM1 its engineers have pushed the definition of ‘pocketable enthusiast camera’ to new limits. The GM1 is cute, fast, and packs an impressive sensor inside its tiny frame. It’s quite a feat of engineering, and we can’t wait to start shooting with a production-quality sample.

GM1 preorder list:
In US at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto.
In Europe at Amazon Germany, Wex Germany, Amazon UK, Fotohanskeuzekamp, Cyberphoto Sweden and Wex UK.

One more deal: Two OPEN BOX Panasonic 20mm lenses for $297 at Henrys (Click here). You save 100 bucks on that!
