Re: FZ200 Amazon Lightning Deal

It's already only $429, so it will be interesting to see what the "deal" is.

Thirty minutes later and only 22 % claimed.

Re: FZ200 Amazon Lightning Deal

Wow, I finally pulled the trigger and got an FZ 200.  So, I'm part of the 22%.  Merry Christmas to me!    Thanks to the OP- I probably would not have caught this offer had it not been brought to my attention here.  (Another example of friendly, supportive collegiality on this forum!)

I might also point out that the ZS 20 is selling for $179 on Amazon now also.  (I bought a ZS19 there two weeks ago for $199...which I thought was a decent price.  I fell prey to the "system error- zoom" problem with my previous ZS20 and thought I would go sans-GPS this time.)

Thanks again!

Re: FZ200 Amazon Lightning Deal

I have been checking the price for a few week and just now when I checked I saw the lightning deal. Scored one to finally upgrade from my ancient Panny model.

Re: FZ200 Amazon Lightning Deal

Usually I find out about great deals about a day after it has ended, but I managed to get in on this deal as well.  27% claimed at the time I ordered.

Re: FZ200 Amazon Lightning Deal

Seems like many are putting in into their carts, but either removing it or allowing the 15 minutes to expire. The "% claimed" was at 30%, then it moved to 28% and now I'm seeing 23% claimed.

2 hours and 5 mins left on a great camera.

Re: FZ200 Amazon Lightning Deal

One hour to go to get on this good deal.

As far as %sold, it depends not only on popularity and price but also the number of units available. Things that sell out fast could indicate relatively few units available. And I'm guessing that a weekday morning isn't the best time slot.

Re: FZ200 Amazon Lightning Deal

I just got an Amazon FZ-200 two weeks ago for $439.

I called and asked for a "credit" based on the new price, they could not do that, BUT ... they suggested and agreed returning the original and re-ordering at lower price.

So did that --- THANKS for the heads-up.

But I forgot to check if the FZ-70 was also discounted yesterday, (I understand it has been $219).  I am really very, very, very, very confused because I really, really, really, really want the 20mm.

(just not sure I can give up the f/2.8 @ 600, articulating EVF, and useful burst-rate).

Thanks for reading .... JoePhoto

Re: FZ200 Amazon Lightning Deal

My wife has had the Fz200 on her Amazon Wish List for a couple of weeks. The price had slowly dropped from $459 to $439.

Then, luckily, she logged on during the lightening deal and bought one with 14 minutes left at $359.

We had never heard about "lightening deals" and still don't know how to find them. Pure luck..

Is subscribing to daily deals emails from Amazon the way to find out?

Joe, I got the $219 price on the FZ70 on a lightning deal 12-8. When I saw the deal, 5 minutes remained and they were all claimed, had to join the wait list but ended up with one. Wish I had seen the deal sooner to alert the forum.

FYI, this is another site I check for deals:

http://cameradeals.1001noisycameras.com

I've taken the FZ70 out for a couple of walks but due to the weather (gray, rain), haven't really given it a good testing. But immediately noticeable was the inferior EVF and burst compared to the FZ200.

Re: FZ200 Amazon Lightning Deal

Any Shipping Information?

We purchased one in the Lightning Deal, to be shipped standard delivery. Friday AM we received a shipping note.  The note reports that FedX will do the shipping but no further details.  Has anyone with faster delivery received their camera?

I have the same problem with rain and gray skies here. I wonder if it's caused by the camera
