Panasonic G9 gets a January 15 estimate (YMMV)

I just added the upcoming Panasonic G9 to the Stock Status Tracker, and surprise-surprise, both the Amazon itself listing and the B&H Photo listing have a January 15 estimate! The original Panasonic estimate was for late February. So if two major retailers have the same estimate, that’s a good sign!

Obligatory screenshots to make sure I did not post this while sleep-walking/sleep-blogging, first B&H and then Amazonia 🙂
