Re: Anyone pre-order the GM1 from panasonic.com? estimated to ship today :)

I pre-ordered it from Panasonic, and I called them to see if it was going to ship as estimated (on Nov 20).

They told me it would in fact not ship on the 20th, that it was status "backordered," and that they could not provide any estimate for when it would ship. Panasonic's site, mind, had advertised that it was to be the first place shipping out cameras (which is why I ordered it from them to begin with).

Following a tip I saw over at 43rumors, I looked at Samy's Camera. Lo and behold, they actually have it in stock. I canceled with Panasonic and went with Samy's, which shipped it out about two hours after I placed my order. Should be here next week.
