Panasonic Offers a ‘Try Before You Buy’ Service for the LUMIX DMC-GH3

Continuing to push the boundaries, Panasonic is pleased to offer a ‘Try Before You Buy’ service for the multiple award winning LUMIX DMC-GH3 with 12-35mm lens.

A real plus for Panasonic customers, this opportunity allows them to explore and try the camera in their own setting before deciding to purchase.

Barney Sykes, Lumix G Camera Product & Marketing Manager says "The GH3 is by far the most advanced system camera we have ever launched and we recognise customers may want to road test this product before committing to such as high value purchase, therefore we are delighted to be able to offer this scheme to our key retail partners to help increase their sales opportunities"
