GH2 Now Shipping thread II
Dec 7, 2010

The other thread reached 150 posts so here we are at thread number 2.

This is what I know so far.

Panasonic Direct: Pre-orders for body only packages began on Wednesday 12/1/10 around 1:00 PM EST. The orders shipping in California shipped first and should be at their destinations today or tomorrow if they are not there already. Orders in other parts of the country should begin arriving later this week. Panasonic direct is no longer taking pre-orders for any GH2s but they are taking 100-300mm lens orders.

Samys.com: They showed that they had Grey GH2s in stock on Monday(12-6-10) afternoon for about 20 minutes. I called them and they said it was a mistake and they pulled the gray ones of the website. They claimed that they had no idea when the cameras would arrive. It could be tomorrow it could be next week. They also posted a GH2 + 14-140mm on Amazon.com. That was sold almost instantly and Amazon is indicating that the camera was shipped on 12-7-10 for delivery on 12-8-10 or 12-09-10. I called Samy's about this at 5:00 PM EST on 12-07-10 and they said it was impossible that it shipped from them because they had not received any GH2s as of 12/07/10.

Amazon.com: GH2's show usually ships in 1-3 months. 100-300mm lenses show they will be released on 12/8/10.

There have been no indications at all about when the 14mm F2.5 pancake lens will ship in the US.

Please remember to include your city and state, who you ordered from, when you ordered, and what you have been told when you post a reply.

Here is mine.

Raleigh, North Carolina

11/01/10 Black GH2 + 14-45mm order with Amazon after they canceled my 9-22-10 pre-order for a Gray GH2 + 14-42mm the day before.

11-17-10 Black GH2 + 14-45 Black with Samys.com. I was told that I am second on their list to receive one. However, they have not received any GH2s at all as of 12-7-10.
