(OLDER POST) Open-box Panasonic G3 w/14-42mm for $397
This is an older post. Check the front page of the blog for the latest updates...
If you are a fan of open-box gear, the current headliner of the open-box Clearance at Vanns is the open-box black Panasonic G3 with the 14-42mm lens offered for $397. The short paragraph over there mentions that this is an open-box return with included accessories and since Vanns is an authorized dealer, you get the full warranty as well.
If/when it sells out, you will no longer see it at the aforelinked page. That's how you will know this listing is no longer available. If you must-not-haz-it-nao, you can play a game of "open-box price-chicken".
The new-in-box of this specific kit goes for $450 as of the time of writing.
