Re: GH3 Firmware for downloading + Playing the Pre-Order Games (US) are reporting 4 currently in stock, so I don't know what the issue is. If Samy's has it and Amazon has it, why not buy from them?

Regarding the firmware - all digital cameras rely on it as it controls just about every aspect of its operation. The GH3 release firmware is version 1.0, as is normal on first release. Any updates will be made available on the Panasonic website when they are issued, but they do not make the 1.0 version available online since it is shipped with the camera. There may or may not be an update soon. The GH2 version 1.1, which contained some useful new features, wasn't released until 18 months or so after the initial don't hold your breath.
