Amazon: It’s Panasonic Lighnting deal day! GF3,GF5,G5,GX1 discounts.


Santa Claus offers you a last chance to grab one of the four(!) Panasonic Lightning deals at Amazon (Click here to see them all). Looks like Panasonic wants to clear all the GF/G/GX camera stock they still have left :)

I can hear my European readers crying. So here are some Panasonic deals:
GF3 can be found for a low price on eBay (via Slidoo). For example the normal 14-42mm kit version for 270 Euro on eBay UK (Click here) and the 14-42mm X kit for $429 on eBay IT (Click here).
GF5 on eBay (via Slidoo). Black Kit with 14-42mm lens for 419 at eBay FR (Click here). X kit for 549 at eBay DE (Click here).

    This is the only chance for Pana to clear it’s stock in this coming big season . G , GF & GX all well beaten by Olympus EPM , EPL & OMD .
    I really don’t know how Pana going to compete in 2013 , as we already see the very promising OMD Pro is on it’s way . If the incoming GX2 featuring GH3 sensor , that will definitely not good enough . I’ll keep following this to see if still relevant to stay with Pana .

      The G5, which has a built in EVF, has been beaten by which Olympus model exactly?

  • Bite Me

    Panasonic is slowly (but surely) phasing out its m43 business, since they’re not making money as expected.

    As for the GH3: Advertised for its video capabalities, instead of its camera prowess.

    As someone who just picked up a barely-used G5 body for $420, that is a great price for a new-in-box G5 body!

    Pretty simple for Panasonic. Just use the Sony sensor and they have competitive product again

    All then need to do is release the GX2 with a built in EVF and the GH3 sensor. It will sell well.

    But then all oly needs to do it release a EP-5 with a built in EVF, the sony sensor and 5 axis IS.

    Both would be a win. but I would choose the camera with the 5 axis IS.

    “Sigh” typical Olympus Fanboy propaganda. Panasonic not selling.. Um, last I checked, Sony is in the red as well, does that stop them from doing Mirrorless too? Phasing out of MFT? LOL!!! Oh Noes!! So does that mean if I want to shoot MFT, I have to switch to Olympus? LOL!! Why oh why did Panasonic just release the GH3? It’s only for video? NOOOO!

    Funny, but I don’t recall Panasonic receiving bailout money from a competitor. I don’t recall Panasonic using a competitors sensor, be it good or bad. Last time I checked, Pansonic doesn’t screw their customers by overcharging for lens hoods and black “LimEd” lenses.

    As a matter of fact, the only company I see phasing out is Olympus. They’re going to phase out and be brought out by Sony.

    Would love for Panasonic to dump Olympus and team up with Fuji. I don’t want no part of Olympus anything with pathetic fanboys such as you all.

    Fanboys on both sides are idiots.

    And, these deals are outstanding.

    I haven’t seen this much FIRE SALE since HD-DVD lost to BLU RAY.


    Panasonic’s missed the boat. The Holidays has landed & it’s VAPORWARE! Now it’s dumping junk to SUCKERS that doesn’t know any better.

    You’re right. Buy it for that price. You deserve it.

    • Garypen

      See? Idiots. Like I said.
