Pre-order new Panasonic GX9 iLC and ZS200 RAWzoomer

“Gooooooooooooool!” says the soccer TV announcer as another mirrorless camera gets revealed in 2018. The Panasonic GX9 is the fourth new mirrorless camera of 2018 [see New Cameras of 2018 tracker], while the ZS200 is the first RAWsumer of the year (fixed lens camera with native RAW out of the box). Both of these new Panasonics are now available for pre-ordering as follows:

+ Panasonic GX9 with 12-60mm for $998 at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself
+ late March release estimate

Panasonic ZS100 superzoom with $100 Gift Certificate and $22 Rewards for $548

In a parallel promotion to the GX9/GX85, the introduction of the brand new Panasonic TZ200/ZS200 (15X, $800, 1″ sensor) has also brought special offers on the TZ/FZ previous generations…

The Panasonic ZS100 currently goes for $548 with free shipping AND Adorama is including with it a $100 Adorama gift certificate and $22~ promotional rewards in your choice of black color scheme or silver color scheme

Previously, in mid December 2017, Adorama offered this with a $50 gift certificate instead of a $100, but it included some free accessories.

As usual, you can optionally triple the original warranty by filing with Panasonica…

Panasonic GX85 with 12-32 and 45-100 and $100 Gift Certificate and $24 Rewards for $598 with free shipping

The previous time Adorama had a similar promotion in last December 2017 it was with a $50 gift card instead of a $100 gift card!

The price is certainly right for a “take pictures with” entry-point into Micro Four Thirds. You pay $600, you get a camera, two lenses, and $124 “buying power” for future purchases at Adorama.
