Brandon R (7/12/2018, 1:31:04 PM): How may i help you

Me (7/12/2018, 1:31:41 PM): I bought the GX9, but in the US Panasonic does not offer a body-only product.
Me (7/12/2018, 1:32:04 PM): Which forces me to sell the lens since I already have an m43 lens collection
Me (7/12/2018, 1:32:16 PM): Will this void the warranty once the kit is broken
Brandon R (7/12/2018, 1:32:58 PM): Yes it would void warranty
Me (7/12/2018, 1:33:44 PM): ok. Thanks for the honest answer. "

My guess is bad communication or just dumb service tech. He might have meant that the KIT's warranty is void since it doesn't exist anymore but I don't see how/why this would void either the lens or body warranty itself. If it really does, this means Panasonic's service / marketing / sales depts are even lamer than I thought...
