Beware of Pany's Canadian distributors
Panasonic has a average presence at the most (I think honestly worse than most camera brands). Once asked about an accessary by Pana at a local Henry store, been told to wait 4 weeks. I guess when their market share isn't strong, the accessary channel is way less important even to themselves.
Better off get it online, even internationally.
I once talked to a Pana local rep when Henry's is holding a Pana camera demo day. He shows no ambition at all about breaking into big brands' territory, admitting Pana is a small player in the game. I know it's a fact but that kind of company culture just wasn't right to me.
