G3 will be in Stock in July (+US deals summary)


The Panasonic G3 should start thw worldwide shipment in July. Let’s see if Panasonic can keep the “promise”. In US the GH2 is still out of Stock. Amazon US (Click here) says that it “Usually ships in 1 to 2 months“!

I am now going to bed but I will check for news every couple of hours. Reminder, the G3 will be announced on 8 am London time. So be sure to be here on 43rumors! Good night!

Here is the summary of the current US deals:
The G2 gets a discount at Adorama (Click here) and so the Olympus E-PL1 at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here), B&H (Click here) and the GH1 at Amazon (Click here) and Adorma (Click here).
The Olympus 14-150mm lens sells for $50o instead of $599 on Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here), B&H (Click here).
Olympus 9-18mm lens for $599 at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here), B&H (Click here).

    The way Panasonic has treated their US customers is disgraceful. The only thing worse are the Europeans on places like 43 Rumors and DP Review who are reveling in it. The US is not some third world country Panasonic- not yet at least. Perhaps the Europeans could organize some sort of Marshall Plan for the US- do for us what we did for the Germans and the rest of them at the end of WWII.

      What’s rather funny is that Panasonic seems to be setting up displays in US malls showing off their 3D TV’s and their cameras. They even had a GH2 on display with some high-quality glass. I told them I was a big fan and had a GH2 but asked why it’s still so hard to find in the US. The sales reps were clueless about the shortage.

      I think there’s a little one arm doesn’t know what the other arm is doing problem in their US marketing and distribution.

        Europe is a much bigger market than the US for Micro Four Thirds. So it makes strong commercial sense for Panasonic to keep the European market well supplied.

        Anyway, there are shortages in Europe too. It is not easy to find a GH2.

Maybe you can take movies of me with your G3 in July! LOL!!!! NOT. Maybe..just maybe you could wait on Amazon all day and see if they list one GH2 in July.
