I don’t now if this was part of a camera kit that got split apart or not.
The Panasonic LX100 compact-with-RAW stubbornly holds on to the early-adopter price of $900, however, to sweeten the price, there are offers with free accessories at authorized Panasonica dealers.

The black Panasonic ZS30 compact-zoom with a bonus 8GB SDHC and 2% promotional rewards is on sale again, going for $250 with free shipping at Adorama.
And now something for Eneloopy fans. NewEggFlash (NewEgg’s answer to Groupon type sites) is offering the Panasonic K-KJ17MCA4BA eneloop Advanced 4-position Charger & 4-pack AA New 2100 Cycle Rechargeable Batteries for $18 with free shipping and handling. You can buy up to 30 sets at this per unit price. Free shipping whether you buy one item or a gazillion… This goes for $20 at Amazon but if you don’t have Prime, you don’t get free shipping… The NewEggFlash offer ends 12/16/14.
NOTE: if you are speed-reading the specs,the numbers are similar and it may create confusion (it did with me): this is a 2100 cycle (2100 recharges), not a 2100 mah battery set. The batteries are rated 2000 mah (1900 mah minimum)… (yes, I know, mAh, not mah, but it’s faster to type mah – although not so much faster if I have to write a separate sentence talking about it )
The Panasonic G6 w/14-42mm II Lens is going for $550 with free shipping again at multiple authorized Panasonic dealers, but the listing at B&H Photo has a pleasant surprise: you also receive a $100 plastic B&H Photo gift card!
