Panasonic GH2 stock status

The Panasonic GH2 was announced at Photokina 2010 with a 16mp sensor and full-HD video as the highly anticipated follow-up to the GH1.

Latest Update: Mon June 11, 2012 at 11pm ET – Over two months since our previous update, the prices have dropped $50 for the GH2 w/14-140 kit and went up $50 for the w/14-42 kit… In some cases, eg B&H Photo, you have to add to cart to see the price… Even more retailers no longer carry individual GH2 kits…

Footnotes
+ when buying from 3rd party sellers at Amazon, Sears, Buy.com, etc, make sure to check who the actual seller is. Not every third-party seller is an authorized Panasonic dealer. Buying from well-known 3rd-party sellers like J&R, Adorama, OneCall, Vanns is not the same as buying from random 3rd party seller who may have a box of GH2s in their basement!
+ prices and availability are as of the “Latest update” date & time shown above
+ prices and availability are not updated automatically
+ “toos” is short for “temporarily out of stock”
+ “listed” means the camera is listed on a retailer’s website but you cannot order or pre-order it yet.
+ “bizdays” = short for “business days”
+ if no price is shown in the table above, it means it has the default price, which is shown in the left-most column, under the camera’s name
+ your purchases through the stock-status pages help support this blog and allows us to continue operating independently, so if you find the stock status pages useful, please consider making your purchases through them
