A quick stateside GH3 delivery
6 months ago
From Glazers, in Seattle, which seems to be a large operation, including rentals. I ordered my GH3 on the auspicious day of 12/12/12, and it arrived 12/25 in Monterey - two weeks before I had expected it, as their first batch had sold out.
The secret lies in pre-paying in full with the order, which is charged to your card at the time, moving you past the non-payers up front in the delivery queue. This worked for my GH2 two years ago when no one else gave much hope.
