I'm thinking of replacing my Canon 650D with a Panasonic DMC-GH3 and 12-35, however, the price of the DMC-GH3 seems to be cheaper in the Netherlands. In the UK the body only price is £1199 compared with 1199 euros (roughly £950) in the rest of the EU.
Is importing a GH3 from the EU advisable? Are there any potential issues I should be aware of other than the need to use a different mains adaptor? I guess PAL is used throughout the EU.
As far as I know UK is still a part of EU I don't think there should be any problems with that - unless UK has different regulations regarding video recording. Price however can be slightly different from what You see on page - UK VAT will apply instead of Netherlands one. Camera should be covered by international warranty so I don't expect problem with that as well
