Where/When to buy ZS40?
Jan 16, 2014

Okay, I'm very tempted by the new ZS cam. In the past I've usually bought cameras several months to a year after release, when prices have dropped and/or I can buy a refurb, but this may be an exception. My ZS19 has taken about 6K photos in the year I've had it and except for sticky lens cover blades (fixed for now with a tad of silicone shaver lube), is still going strong, but I can find a good home for it.

Price is set at $450 at Panasonic and Adorama, not listed on Amazon yet, oddly $500 at BHPhoto, but I'm sure they'll come around to $450.

Do you think it will be available sooner from Panasonic than the other sources? Their web site says mid-March.

How long do you think the $450 price will hold up?
