Panasonic G9 with 12-60/3.5-5.6 for $650

You would think that camera doorbusters are a thing of the past in these days of MAP and smartphones and action-cams and drones but NO! Amazon comes to the rescue, they are offering, for a limited time, the new condition Panasonic G9 with 12-60/3.5-5.6 (DC-G9MK) for $650. This is a M43rds camera that was announced in December 2017.

This kit is not available at B&H and Adorama. They have the body only for $900 with a free battery grip.

Thanks to this offer it is currently the #1 in the top selling Mirrorless cameras.

PS: keep in mind, these days of chaotic listings, the Amazon Top Seller charts are only as good as the categorization of various products. So it’s not uncommon to see “uncanon” products in the charts.

PS2: regular readers of this blog may recall that many years ago we used to traverse the best seller charts (when the categorization was more organized – mayhaps human-controlled vs AI?) and create weekly “Top Seller” posts. Those were the days 🙂
