GX7 Delivery Date for U.S.?

Sorry to start yet another GX7 thread, but I've found no pre-order site with a delivery date. Having ordered the new 14-140 in March then selling my old 14-140 -- and later finding the U.S. delivery would be in late Sept or early Oct -- I'm suspicious of another slow roll out by Panasonic. Come to think of it, I think I waited several months for my GH3, likely due to the GH3 pipeline filling at a very slow rate.

Does anyone have reliable date for U.S. release (vs. announcement)?

Ah: Just visited the Panasonic site where it says "Estimated Ship date: October" (which hopefully is Oct 2013!)

European sites show middle of September 2013.

I'm going to wait for the black version, which looks like it will be a while . . . .

Looks like. I've asked a couple of vendors what their expected ship date is: Nada at their websites.

I guess Nov/Dec would be more optimistic, look at GF6  and G6, announced in April and now just getting in stock (and small amount too)
