    There must be some fundamental problems with Panasonic’s supply chain..

    Ouch !! Olympus will have the new OM-D with kits in stores before GH3 kits are in stores worlwide…

  • ckwin

    Olympus 17mm f1.8 has already arrived in Taiwan! The local retailer ships today, and we can got the lens tomorrow! First unbox article is here :

  • Panasonic simply can’t get China to make enough of them. If you find one its worth buying it now as the initial Christmas stock is rapidly selling out and then it probably wont be well into January /Feb before we see stronger stocks.

    hahaha, always the same with Panasonic

  • labalbi

    I ll be in USA by 23, january …Should I become worried ? I’ll stay in USA for just 15 days in a Disney trip and I would like to have the camera in the very first day ….

    Looks like I’ll be getting mine after Christmas, then, when I’m not going anywhere and won’t miss a surprise delivery.

  • There’s a big surprise… Not!

  • According to this translation, it seems only the “Body only” option has been delayed in Japan until 29th December, while both kits (GH3+12/35 & GH3+14/140) are still expected to release on 13th, as originally stated.


  • Marcus Wolschon

    Does the japanese version feature a PAL/NTSC switch (because they use both mains power frequencies)?

  • Good sign it is so popular, should mean the community and after market support for the GH series will stay strong.
