    is this a joke? Even high end made in Sendai Nikon D800 makes and sells up to 25,000 to 30,000 bodies a month. So people have to get onto 3-month long waitlist for GH3 this time around?

      Maybe you should contact Panasonic Japan and ask them.

    Just in time for that all-important Martin Luther King gift-giving holiday!

    In stock at unique photo this weekend. There is a camera show going on and there will be a very limited amount up for sale at the show! Spoke to one of the store guys today.

    What is that puny sensor doing in that huge camera?

  • Koseng

    Probably Pana want to limit the supply in the first few months to squeeze the profit out of those people who think they can’t make a good video without it.

    Multiple stores in Norway (and elsewhere in europe) have the GH3 in stock. So it seems the rumors of its unavailability are overstated or perhaps only a few Japan or USA is being given the shaft.

      Huge retailers like Amazon have sold them out. On ebay you can buy it only from UK or Canada. But you can easily find it in some small stores. I know that your comment was written two moths ago, but it seems that Panasonic cannot supply enough cameras yet. It is sold like a hell nowadays.

    DSLR sized camera with a glorified cell phone sensor. “Ya, but its video is incredible!” With a 2x crop and huge DOF, and in a DSLR form factor it makes no sense. Might as well get a dedicated camcorder.

    It’s kinda strange. I’ve backordered it on adorama.com in the end of september and I’be got the camera a week ago.

    The GH-3 has been in stock at all the local stores for the last week or so… someone should tell Panasonic Japan knows the camera is already shipping.
