Not a bad price if you need the lens and can use the $150 gift card. It may be more than gray market prices, but Adorama is an authorized Panasonic reseller so you get a real manufacturer warranty plus a free extended warranty (3 years, just need to fill out the form).

It's doing quite well actually with many new camera bodies and lenses being added regularly.

3 new bodies will be coming out soon.
Panasonic gh5
Olympus E-M1 mark II
Olympus E-PL8

A bunch a new lenses have been announced and available, many of them premium lenses with a premium price such as the
Panasonic 100-400mm
Olympus 300mm f4
Panasonic 12mm 1.4
And the above Panasonic 12-60 weather sealed kit lens

In fact the Olympus lens which is over $2k has a hard time staying in stock because of high demand.

M43 has a problem taking off? Think again

Most likely NTSC. Adorama is an authorized retailer and this isn't listed as gray market.

I agree about the price but you do get what you pay for and the prices are inline with other interchangeable lens cameras.

Take a look at Fuji's latest cameras the X-pro2 and the X-T2 both of which are $1600+ cameras.
Nikon D500 is $2000
Canon's new 80D is around $1350.
Nikon V3 with smaller 1" sensor $1200
Olympus E-M5 Mark II $1200


In terms of pic quality, yes those mentioned above are better except for the Nikon 1 V3, but M43 is not far behind and close, but in video quality panasonic is among the best.

I've seen E-M5 MII on ebay in the 600-700 range if you look carefully. I know I sure wouldn't pay $1200, and neither would I pay the same $1200 for this GX8. I'm looking to get a GX8 but I too am looking for a good deal. I've seen them go on ebay new for under $700 but I think I'll keep waiting for better deals at the end of the year towards the holiday season
