i was able to get the body and a kit lens for $298 on amazon.
I assume price mistake...they had black available to ship immediately and silver to be shipped next week.
I really wanted the silver but was afraid they will cancel before they ship so got the black one with same day delivery (amazon prime).
Received it just fine
Really nice camera with some heft to it and kit lens is really good for what it is (must be lack of AA filter)...and i own fuji gear with their finest primes, 2 A7II bodies wit zeiss/sony lenses and Canon FF with Canons F2.8 zooms so i have something to compare. Really sharp images
I wanted something that i can carry with me all the time without fear of damaging/loosing it and this will do great.

Wow, this post got TD'd and side-tracked by the $298 Amazon price error.

OP's $498 price is actually the lowest the GX85 has ever been. The typical price is $698.

BestBuy had it for $498 this weekend, now it's $799.99. Amazon right now has limited supply on the silver-only GX85 for $498, otherwise the black is $798.

$498 is an awesome price.

I think the GX85 has actually been lower, if you subtract the value of bundled items, during the holidays. At one point around December it was $650 including the 45-150mm lens and a $150 gift card. $500 is decent but not extraordinary IMO.

It's never been as low as $498.
If someone needs the camera now, this is a good deal. Unless you have a time machine back to December? shake head

Anyway, bundled item price/gift cards still required you to spend more than $498.

As I said, right now BestBuy has it for $799.99 and the black model at Amazon is $798, with only a few left of the silvers @ $498.

I mean, you could wait four months until Black Friday and perhaps there will be a lightning deal for $399. But then you won't have the camera that whole time. Plus, the value of these decrease quickly. I wouldn't be surprised if sometime this year Panasonic announces a GX95 with a mic input, flip out screen and 200mbps video.

This is a good price... If you need it at this moment. But adorama has had it about $50-100 cheaper if you do a little work.

The deal was the camera with the kit lens, a zoom lens, and $150 gift card.

The only issue with this deal is that time has passed, and it must be cheaper. It will also most likely be cheaper in 3 months. So unless you desperately need a camera now, just wait till fall.
