I've learned my Panasonic lesson - LX7 $299
Nov 23, 2012

I bought my LX7 on Amazon for $429 in the third week of October. Now Panasonic puts this new and current model up on sale at $299 this weekend.

I'm 59 years old and continue to learn life lessons. In the future, I will likely delay many photo purchases until Thanksgiving weekend. That will give me the best deal, but it will hurt the camera manufacturers. Why? The public increasingly does not accept normal street prices. While the public races for a "deal" the manufacturers will suffer even slimmer margins in an industry that is already not doing well.

BTW, the LX7 is a truly wonderful camera. I'm considering acquiring a second one this weekend...for $299.
