Panasonic LUMIX G7 4K Digital Mirrorless Camera with 14-42mm + free shipping $498 (backordered) Midwest - Auth Retailer

-2 Deal Score

I got the last one in stock, but Midwest is still taking backorders with a 7-14 day wait so thought this might be useful to someone. I know this is the regular yo-yo price recently, and in that time the price might yo-yo back to $498 everywhere, but currently this is the only authorized Panasonic retailer selling at $498 that I could find. Amazon right now is $598, Adorama $700.

There is also an offer running through march to extend the usual 1 year manufacturer warranty to 3 years. Form here https://mpex.com/skin/frontend/en...rranty.pdf

And if you've been waiting for that deal alert to finally trigger a slick deal on a sick yo-yo, I apologize.

Just remember before you thumb down, post a better deal in the comments...

This is still the best price around.

So mine was a back order too, website error apparently, grr. Still the lowest price though, by $100, so I have little option but to stick with it, or pay more. There was a recent run of $497, but before that C C C doesn't show it that low for quite some time.

Midwest told me "Looks like our vendor will have these in stock to ship out to us on Thursday which will take about 3 days for us to receive after they ship."

So I'm hoping to get mine by middle of next week.

If you voted this down, I would like to be clear, you are an idiot. You probably prevented other people from getting this deal for NO good reason.

I did finally get mine for $497 after the initial back order. It took an additional 2 weeks from order to delivery. That was worth $100 saving for me.

So this deal is now expired, but I wanted to comment on the -2 score for this deal. This was the lowest price, and the last chance on this go round to get this camera for at least $100 less than the price it's been since. How this gets -2 when a deal saving a buck gets front page it beyond me, and is very frustrating to anyone like me wanting to share a decent deal.

The price is still currently $597 after going to $797 for a time. If it drops to $497 I'd recommend it.
