This is a scam site. I tried to order this battery and they did a bait and switch, charged my credit card, and then never shipped the battery. I called and they quickly cancelled it. However, it is most definitely a scam site. They don't have the battery. They will tell you they are getting them in but they really are just taking your money and then seeing if they can find it anywhere.

Scam....SCAM....SCAM.

Hi:

In my experience in dealing with this site over many years, they have been extremely reliable, forthright, and honest.  At one point, I received a defective charger, they immediately shipped out a replacement and told me to throw out the bad unit.  Their batteries have functioned very well in my GH2, Canon 7D and Canon XSi cameras.

The GH3 is new, it takes time to develop chargers and batteries that will communicate with the camera.  I will gladly wait the few months they indicated to me for GH3 fully compatible battery/charger availability.
