    I understand the site needs to make money, but there have been precious few rumors of late for a site titled 43rumors and a lot of stories about camera prices. Perhaps the site could be changed to

      It takes zero effort to ignore the “stories” that don’t interest you. How many rumors do you think occur in the m4/3 realm per month? 4? 6? Why don’t you just check the site weekly? Or better yet, subscribe via RSS or Twitter, so that you only see the titles?

      Technology isn’t that hard.

        Very good post Michael. I for one am grateful for the info on when there’s a deal on a given camera. I actually enjoy these posts as much as the rumors.

        • Steve

          Price drops can sometimes be a rumor – LX7 with full HD anyone ?

      • Just to remind: links to the major categories are right at the top of the every page: “RUMORS”, “NEWS”, “REVIEWS” and “DEALS”.

      This site strikes a much better than expected balance between information and ads.
      Not only that but these deals are useful information too.

      Hadn’t I bought a GH2 recently and I might happily jump on one of these, and could I get anything close to these prices on Euroland and I would also jump on the LX-5 (even if I don’t really need it).

    • Robbie

      Cmon there can’t be rumors every day…
      I do hope we have prices like this in Europe though

    • You probably are not living in a western country. It’s a Christmas advent time here. And as with every big holiday it is time of making gifts. Thus all the shops try to promote themselves by offering products at lower prices.

      Another side effect of Christmas: many people (including the rumor sources; including the employees of camera companies) are either in pre-holiday or pre-xmas-vacations mood.

      It’s really not much stuff happening in the December and the beginning of January – except for the xmas and new year promotional deals.

  • groubas

    Yes and if there are no rumors let’s create some.

  • safaridon

    Looks more and more likely we will see new LX7, GH3, and GF5 announced in January?

  • Narretz

    Guys, it’s Christmas. Special offers are common, and don’t mean new camera announcements automatically.

    • safaridon

      Not just wishfull thinking. Admin has already said that a LX5 replacement is likely coming in January 2012. Pany has said with GX1 they are creating a new higher series from the GF series and I don’t see one camera GF3 as being a series. The GF2 was introduced Nov 2010 and since not very popular until big price reductions likely they will add G3 sensor and fast AF processing to boost and maybe a tilting screen. Otherwise maybe dropping model entirely for the GX1.

      Yes the GH3 on a 18 month turnover schedule not likely as Pany said may be delayed but maybe they are coming with new GX2 weatherproofed body instead with EVF and GH3 innards or if not then GH2 body with firmware upgrades for video and new fast X lens?

      Yes there are bargains at Xmas time but I have never seen the discounts found this year in apparent move to clear out inventory as sure sign of new models coming and also likely the result of very stiff competition from all sides.

    Any word on when the new GH2 firmware will be released?

    • admin

      Mid December!

  • Brian Siano

    Just tried the Adorama GH2 deal: it’s $999, but the coupon codes aren’t being accepted.

  • Thanks for posting the deal Admin…I passed it along to lots of friends…

  • Bu

    Wow, I wish we could get that price in England!

  • Stravinsky

    As much as I love my new X10, the Lx5 might be a better deal. Too bad, already have and love my lx3!

  • Ras

    Body only for $769? Meh.

    The GH2 14-42mm kit was $699 from Adorama yesterday (picked up one, thanks to 43rumors!).

    • P4INKiller

      Was about to get one, but the deal is gone.
      Not sure if I should get it for $795

      • Ras

        I wouildn’t, knowing it was $100 cheaper a few days earlier.
