Panasonic Deals of the Day
After months of deliberating, I ordered the G2 today from Amazon Warehouse for ~$560 including next day shipping(thank you Amazon Prime Trial membership for that). I am very excited I should be getting it tomorrow. Feels good to finally make the order.
The $525 is gone (or I can't find it), and the remaining cameras all have "cosmetic blemish" warnings.
Eligible for a warranty provided by Square Trade for open box items. Item may come repackaged. Minor cosmetic imperfection on top, front or sides of item. Minor cosmetic imperfection on bottom or back of item. Lid has minor cosmetic imperfection. Minor cosmetic imperfection on interior of item. All purchases eligible for Amazon customer service and 30 day return policy.
Are these sold directly by Amazon or by other sellers THRU Amazon? ANd what do you know (or does anyone know) of the cosmetic condition of these cameras?
They are sold through Amazon themselves, at least that what they told me over the phone. I should get my G2 from Amazon Warehouse deals, tomorrow, and will find out more about. Then one I got has a is in very good condition, with a cosmetic blemish on body(I am assuming a scratch), and damage on the box. I ordered a laptop from Amazon Warehouse deals(was literally like half price), in the stated condition, over a year ago without any problems. I was even covered under manufacture warranty 1 year standard warranty. It worked once for me, so I thought what is the worse that can happen.
I really want an EVF and the 14-45 lens, not the 14-42 lens. I use a camcorder for video. The GF1 would work but you have to pay extra for the EVF and it is not as good as the one on the G1. The G1 is still the best Panasonic M 4/3 camera for the price if you do not want video.
Not bad, but if you want video or a smaller size these are also great choices, specially the GF1.
