In one month Panasonic did announce the G3 the GF3 and the Leica 25mm lens. Time for a preorder status check!
Panasonic-Leica 25mm f/1.4 lens
The only US store I found that is accepting preorders is Adorama (Click here). Be aware that when you search for the lens on Amazon (Click here) or BHphoto (Click here) you will find the bigger and older Four Thirds version not the new M43 lens!!! And on eBay there is only one reseller accepting preorders (Click here).
I checked the biggest European stores and there is no preorder option. Worldwide shipment should start in late July. As usual Asian countries will be the first to get the lens, than European, than Canadians and some months after US citizen 😉
P.S.: Panasonic published a couple of image samples you can find here.
If you find new links to preorders feel free to comment this post. But you should now that my designer is still working to fix the comment system. If you are an unregistered commenter once you click on the send button the website will keep loading for 30 sec and than show yu an error message. The comment is save and will be displayed but you should go back to the main page. I know this sucks, but we made a whole new installation on a the new server and the designer is a bit slow in fixing the issues
One more thing: There are new GF3 and G3 wallpapers at Panasonic’s website!
