    my guess is that this is list price
    That's like the launch price of GF1 w/ 14-45 Kit ...

    If i'm not mistaken, there isn't international warranty for Panasonic products bought in HK or China. Rather, it's a local warranty only applicable to the afore mentioned places.

    Not a bad price tho!

    Definitely agree with you on the looks! The handgrip on the GX-1 may be good ergonomics, but looks a a grotesque cancerous growth on the face of a beauty. Panasonic should have retain the minimalistic grip on the GF1, perhaps with a little accentuation.

    actually i just returned from a 3 week trip in Shanghai, Xi'an and Beijing with the editorial review set of this camera

    at first i wasn't too hot about that grip but after just a couple of days, it served its ergonomic purpose especially when shooting one-handed in cold weather .... certainly feels alot safer in the hand

    btw I'll be posting sample hands-on images with this cam this evening .... will keep all posted

    p/s and i could not be happier for that pancake zoom ....... lolzz now if they could make it a constant 2.8 or 3.5 ....

    Dont be so sure, i have already received an official reply from Shun Hing (Panasonic HK) with regards to the worldwide warranty. I am now forwarding the contents of the email to our local Panasonic Singapore representative here.

    It would indeed be awesome if Panasonic grey import models do carry an international warranty too. Please keep us posted!

    I'm not referring to grey imports (relative to HK). I'm referring to Panasonic equipment purchased from AUTHORISED PANASONIC DEALERS in HONG KONG.

    Hi, I am all wondering.
    The coming March IT Show at Suntec. Will there a panasonic booth for camera?

    Hoping for a great offer.
    But after doing a search. Some respond that the IT show. Comex, etc, there no panasonic booth. Panny pay less attention to these event. Moreover, some bro mentioned that these event,the promotion is not worth it.
    Gift of no use or rather cheap stuff.

    Like to check, is it true?
    Should I wait for IT?

    Or just get the Lumix at hm/Cathay etc? Btw getting the gx1.

    The big guns. Canon,epson samsung, usual
    But no see Lumix booth, if I remember correctly...

    going by historical events, panasonic does not participate in these shows
    but i do believe that they have had promotions running at the same time but at the shops,
    i will post about it when i have information.
