Finally some new interesting deals. Amazon US has the Panasonic GF1 (Black Body Only) in Stock via Third-Party reseller. The price is really good -> $599.99 (and three left in Stock). Adorama sells the same body only option for $799.95!
US citizen are not so lucky with Panasonic stuff like europeans. After 5 months it is still difficoult to find the highly rewarded Panasonic 20mm lens in Stock with a the “normal” price ($399).
At least the price of the Panasonic GF1 with 20mm f/1.7 Lens has fallen a little bit (now $958.00 at amazon via third party resellers). That’s one of the best prices since months on amazon. Of course you can choose to buy it from amazon itself for $899 but the item is not in Stock since….since months :(
Just received an email from a 43rumors reader: “I keep noticing you mention that Amazon US is out of stock of the GF1 w 20mm. While this remains true, in my experience they fill orders at the low price fairly fast.
I placed an order on the evening of Jan 12. The unit was supposedly backordered for 3-5 weeks. The product page at the $899 price tends to shift between 3 – 5 and 2 – 4 weeks. My GF1 arrived in TX on Jan 26. Very happy to have waited and saved the money.”
