Panasonic LUMIX G85 4K Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera Kit with 12-60mm Lens - $829

$829.99
+8 Deal Score

Panasonic via PerksatWork.com has the Panasonic G85 digital camera body + 12-60mm lens kit for $829.99. MSRP is $999.

This is the lowest it has been on SD that I can find. I personally pulled up the price on my phone and had Best Buy Pricematch. (YMMV, but screenshot below)

One of the most highly rated camera out there. Contains IBIS (In body image stabilization). Shoots 4K. This is one of the cameras that Casey Neistat uses for his blogs.

Slightly bigger than the Sony A6500, but $600 less.

Why the thumbs down on this?

I haven't seen this specific camera on sale for the past 6 months on this site.

Why not just buy from the panasonic site?

You have to search for panasonic, then go to the panasonic website and on their site search for g85 to see the price.

Thanks for the explanation. The price is indeed $829.99 and it's from Panasonic website. G85 for $829.99 is truly a deal. Thanks!

I'm still trying to figure out why OP chose to price match to best buy first?

Seems like panasonic site also has a deal where you get 3 year extended warranty free with purchase.

dunno, maybe get the camera in person? FYI, you can purchase from any authorized dealers and get 3 year extended warranty, doesn't have to be on panasonic site.

Bought from Best Buy for the following reasons:

- Elite Member = 45 day returns
- Rewardzone cashback
- Had $200+ in gift cards
- You get 3 year warranty from any authorized seller
- More predictable shipping

Ok thanks.
How much cashback did you receive?
Did you go into store and price match and then ask for delivery to home?
Did they give you any trouble with the corporate perks listing on the site for price match?


Is this lens worth it as the version without the lens is $900 even at best buy?


Thx

1. Elite member is 2.5% cash back in rewards
2. Yes. In store order, price match, ship to home.
3. Showed it on my phone on actual product page. No issues
4. Consensus is that lens is very good for kit lens

$749 price is for used camera. Plus looks like body only no lens kit.

FYI, you won't earn bestbuy points on the $200 you paid with a gift card. You could have used ibotta in addition to get an extra 2% off the entire amount (including the portion paid with a GC).
