Still Good: Panasonic G85 with 12-60 and 45-200 OIS for $998

Multiply the camera’s name by ten, insert an “X”, and divide the price by 0.40 [I believe this is the first time ever I attempted this type of a joke ~ probably with good reason!] and you get the new condition Panasonic GX850 with the 12-32mm kit lens and free extras for $400 with free shipping at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself (no freebies but 5% cashback with Prime card or activated Discover Q4 cashback).

Panasonic FZ2500 SuperZoom for $1000 with FREE $100 GC or Shure VP83F LensHopper Mic

The Panasonic FZ-2500, a 1-inch RAWzoomer with a 20x superzoom lens, something our 2007 themselves might have considered a unicorn, remains at $998 but it gains a freebie. You have a choice, at B&H Photo you get a $100 B&H e-gift card. At Adorama, you sure get a freebie [sorry, I couldn’t resist), the Shure VP83F LensHopper Microphone which goes for $300 on its own!

Panasonic GH4 Body with Choice of Freebie for $898

The Panasonic GH5 body only is holding steady at $2000, but the imported/grey-market prices have been dropping steadily, currently going for $1500 grey market as one of the eBay Black Friday features.

But the Panasonic GH4 is not only going for $898 but you have choices on which freebie to pick at B&H Photo: FREE Rode Mic or mayhaps V-LOG Activation Kit or 4% promotional rewards ($36~ in future purchases)… Amazon has it for $900, but no freeebies…

(ENDED) Used Panasonic FZ80 superzoom (60X) for $250

As of a 11/26/17 AM recheck, the used options have sold out….

The Panasonic FZ80 superzoom (60x optical) is on sale for $348 with free shipping at authorized dealers such as B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself [corrected link]. You can optionally triple the original 1-year warranty by filing paperwork with Panasonica.

But if you are comfortable with used cameras without warranty (only a 30-day return policy), then thanks to the 20% off in-cart promotion at Amazon Warehouse Deals, you can get this camera in USED – Like New condition for $250 with free shipping after the in-cart discount. There are many listings of this, and pictures of the available cameras, so it is possible that price pressure will build on them and price will drop over time ~ other things equal, because the real world is not an Economics 101 textbook example 🙂

Imported Panasonic GH5 body w/1-YR seller warranty for $1500

One of the cameras teased in the eBay BF Ads [see BF Ads Digest mega-post] is the Panasonic GH5 body only for $1500, and I think I’ve found that offer. As expected, it is imported/grey-market, offered in new condition by 6ave’s eBay store with a limit of up to three per buyer. It comes with a 1-year seller warranty.

This is a $50 drop since the last time I updated the Stock Status Tracker where the same seller offered it for $1550. The new condition price at authorized dealers remains $2000 (thank you MAP pricing).

BUT another option emerged now, KEH Camera has limited supplies in USED “LN-” (Like New Minus) condition for $1829 plus shipping. And if you buy before 12/31/17, you get a 365-warranty from KEH Camera instead of the usual 180-day. Definitely better to have a KEH warranty than an eBay seller warranty 🙂

Panasonic Leica 42.5mm f1.2 OIS with lots of extras for $1398

The Panasonic Leica 42.5mm f1.2 OIS micro four thirds lens is on sale for $1398 with a boatload of free lens-y accessories at Adorama: 67mm filter kit, Corel software bundle, FocusShifter DSLR Follow Focus & Rack Focus, lens wrap, lens shade, and cleaning kit.

Panasonic G9 returns to Amazon

A few days ago the option to pre-order the Panasonic G9 at Amazon disappeared, but as of the time of writing, the option to pre-order this for $1700 has returned at Amazon. I have no clue why it disappeared. AI Bots Gone Wild? 🙂

You can see how it stacks up price-wise with other mirrorless camera in last week’s Mirrorless Price Chart. Its announcement came just as I was preparing the charts. If I was a day early, it wouldn’t have made it. So sometimes being late pays off 🙂

Speaking of Panasonic, a number of their M43rds cameras, lenses and fixed lens cameras are on sale. You can find them all under the Panasonic category, or under the Mirrorless section of the Black Friday 2017 Situation Room. It looks like mayhaps they are trying to steal a march on the other camera manufacturers by rolling out their sales earlier.

Panasonic G85 with 12-60 and 45-200 OIS for $998

The Panasonic G85 mirrorless camera is on its way out. The body only kit is already gone, that’s why we didn’t include it in our latest Mirrorless Price Chart, but that doesn’t stop the deals from happening!

The standard Panasonic G85 with 12-60mm which goes for $1000 now (and went for $1000 last week) is now bundled with the Panasonic 45-200mm f4-5.6 II PowerOIS lens for FREE at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 3 per customer; 5% if you pay with Prime Chase VISA; 3% with non-Prime Chase VISA) and B&H Photo and Adorama.

Pre-order new Panasonic 128GB SDZA Professional SDXC card for … [OMG!]

Panasonic is getting serious about the professional memory card game too. Announced together with their new Panasonic G9 photographic flagship is a “professionally priced” SDXC memory card too. The new Panasonic RP-SDZA128AK, part of their SDZA series, is a 128GB UHS II SDXC, V90 90MB/sec., 280MB/Sec. Read, 250 MB/Sec. Write, Class 3 (U3) & Class 10 memory card with a pre-order price of $500.

Pre-orders of this are accepted at Amazon by Amazon itself (February 2018 release estimate) and at B&H Photo whose release estimate is mid-November 2017 (may be a typo, I don’t know?).

Pre-order new Panasonic 200mm f2.8 OIS lens [m43]

Telebrights are coming to Micro Four Thirds Landia! Coming along with the G9 flagship camera is a brand new bright telephoto prime, the new H-ES200 lens. Or as most people like to call it, a Panasonic 200mm f2.8 OIS with an includes 1.4X teleconverter (DMW-TC14) for the pre-order price of $3000.

Pre-orders for this lovely are accepted at Amazon by Amazon itself and B&H Photo and Adorama.

If the included 1.4X teleconverter is not enough, Panasonic will also be releasing at about the same time the brand new Panasonic LUMIX 2.0X Teleconverter Lens, Black (DMW-TC20) for this lens, available for pre-ordering for $600 at Amazon by Amazon itself and Adorama and B&H Photo.

This too has been added to the New Lenses of 2017 tracking page.

Pre-order new Panasonic G9 camera with Dual IS, 80mp high-res mode for $1700

Patience is a virtue for this new camera as the estimates point to mid January to mid February 2018. It is the brand new Panasonic G9 non-video flagship, with a dual IS system [about time this became popular], dual SD slots, and an “80 megapixel high-res mode” among other things. The pre-order price is $1700 with pre-orders accepted by Amazon itself and Adorama and B&H Photo.

It will be added to the Stock Status Tracker as we get closer to release date (it’s 2-3 months away).

Also coming along for the ride is the Panasonic DMW-BGG9 Battery Grip available for pre-ordering for $350 at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself.

The timing of this camera is perfect because our Mirrorless segment of the Camera Price Charts is coming out tomorrow, so it will be included 🙂

This too has been added to the New Cameras of 2017 tracking page. This furthers the Mirrorless cameras lead over DSLRs to 12-8. It is not unreasonable to assume that DSLRs probably don’t have a chance to catch up to them in 2017 but you never know, we’ve had November and December surprised in previous years after all!

Does this sound like a dream M43rds camera or hype? Details at 11!

Imported Panasonic 100-400 f4-6.3 OIS for $1370 [m43]

To the eBay Deals we go, where the QuickNDone eBay store (99.9%) is offering the new condition imported grey-market Panasonic Leica DG 100-400mm F/4-6.3 O.I.S micro four thirds lens for $1370 with free shipping until 11/6/17 or earlier if sold out. Limit two per customer.

There is no mention of warranty in the eBay listing except when you hit the Warranty tab at the very bottom, it says limited 1-year (it may have been a leftover or default setting in the form). In the chance they do offer a warranty, it would be a seller-warranty, since they are not Panasonic USA retailers. Assume there is no warranty to be on the safe side.

PS: if interested in this, don’t forget to first activate the 8% eBay Bucks if you have invited by the eBay email bots to participate.

Panasonic GH4 with 12-35mm f2.8 for $1495

Good until Monday night (7/24/17), you can get the new condition Panasonic GH4 with 12-35mm f2.8 for $1495 with free shipping. The price before the sale was $2095, so that’s a pretty nice combined purchase discount for a PRO zoom lens and a previous generation flagship M43rds camera.
