Weird: No G5 news in Japan! And no G5 preorder run in US.


It may sound surprising but there were no news yet about the Panasonic G5 in Japan!!! Just check the most famous website: UPDATE: After 24 hours delay it now has been announced in Japan too!

Meantime preorder are up on Amazon too (Black here and Silver here and White here) but the camera didn’t manage to get into the top 100 of the most (pre-)ordered mirrorless cameras (ranking here). Also BHphoto has them available for preorder (Black here and Silver here).

On top of the post you can see the official Panasonic G5 commercial. And here is a list of new links to G5 related news: Photoxels, Pocket Lint, Akihabarenews, Quesabesde and Heise.

Below I posted a set of new deals including the other new Panasonic compact camera preorder links:
