Took me a few months but finally got a GH2 w/ 14-140mm from Amazon a couple of days ago.
I bookmarked the panny page on nowinstock.net and checked it regularly.
Around 2am on March 2rd Amazon showed as 'preorder'.
Went to Amazon and it said they expected them March 8th. I hit the preorder button.
Around 7am Amazon sent me the following:
” “Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 16.05 MP Live MOS Interchangeable Lens Camera with 3-inch Free-Angle Touch Screen LCD and 14-140mm HD Hybrid Lens (Black)”
Previous estimated arrival date: March 11 2011
New estimated arrival date: March 07 2011″
By this time Amazon was showing them as out of stock again.
That same evening Amazon notified me it had shipped.
With Amazon prime I received it 2 days later on March 4th.
So it went from a preorder to having it 2 days later.
The Amazon price was $1499. All those other inflated prices are third parties.
My 20mm prime from Amazon arrives tomorrow
