Panasonic GF2 gets a price and a release date *updated*

Update #2: Panasonic GF2 will be available in Japan on December 3rd (source).

Update: another Amazon UK entry lists the GF2 at £599.

Panasonic usually reveals their pricing 30 days before the camera is released for sale, but according to Amazon UK, the Panasonic GF2 will cost £729.99 and will be released on January 24, 2011:

FYI: Panasonic GF1 currently sells for almost half price (£404).

    Not with the 2 lens kit… don’t forget that the 14/2.5 costs 400 usd in itself.

    This is a kind of new SPAM by Black Hat SEO.

    My God this camera is priced like it is the only and best performing picture taking revolutionary machine in the world!
    Highest it should cost is £500, offering the current array of features…
    £700 is just fools tax… sorry but full size cameras cost that much, not pocket toys

      yea exactly. then those fools realize that with such huge lenses it is not more pocketable or compact then real DSLR and will facepalm them self

    I wouldn’t believe that £730 will be the final retail price for two reasons:

    1) Amazon still don’t know what Panasonic will recommend as the retail price, so they are naming a price they know it will sell for less than.

    2) Launch day prices are ridiculous in the UK and drop fairly swiftly -generally within a month (once the initial ‘must have first’ purchasers have bought theirs). For example the Canon 60D launched at £1099 body only (a 7D could be had for £1199 at the time), but now you can get one for £796 (still more than the US!).

    yes.. it will come down in price..
    but just look at the gf1 price compared to samsung nx100..

    body + kit lens
    gf1 530€
    nx100 420€

    body + kit lens + 20/30mm prime
    gf1 860€
    nx100 620€

    panasonics prices are pretty ridiculous. their only advantage right now are a couple more (overpriced) lenses and video performance..
    next year samsung will already have better lenses (more primes + 60mm macro, super zoom) and all reasonably priced.
    m4/3 is flawed from the beginning. they also killed 4/3 already.

    I also think that 4/3 and m4/3 users have stockholm syndrome hehe
