    Look at the other prices in the BnS section and compare and decide yourself. Only you know what is worth.

    It's a decent camera, but like you said, it's a dead sub-forum. So if you need help, how?

    You mentioned Amazon was where you got the price. So you should check the seller's rating there. Why would you even think it means the forum?

    And by the way, it is the Newbies' Forum, but please look around and do some due diligence in searching threads using the search tool and google to find out how to determine whether it's a good deal or not. You can start by looking for the retail price of the G5 yourself

    That does not mean we can help you with an issue on a camera only you own. We are not a complimentary Panasonic helpdesk. Also, just because this is a newbies corner does NOT mean we are obligated to answer you. Posting "good buy or not" over and over again will just result in one answer:

    If you know so little about that model compared to the competition, you should not buy anything at all.

    well... SGD420 is a considered a fairly good price and if the seller's legit on Amazon why not go for it since u said u can't resist buying.

    Rashkae and Kei told u to check local B n S prices which i believe u should have done so already if u r serious abt buying. Use them as a price point for comparison. I can say that the RRP for the G5 is lame, go check the prices at local Funan shops etc.

    oh..someone in other forums selling a brand new set believe a amazon set for $600...with 14-42 kit lens.

    so yeah...$420 is a good deal..not sure how much the GST adds up..

    US$ 299 is body only, plus a "standard" battery, could be 3 party battery.
    anyway, this set only ship within USA, so you need to use a concierge service to ship it to SG,
    you can check out the return policy before you buy, if it is not you want, you can return it within the time frame, all you have to lose is shipping cost and exchange rate.

    or come to worst, just dispose it at B&S.

    btw, the 7% is the on total cost including shipping.
