dropped by Cathay and my regular salesman said that its going to be about 2 weeks before they get stock.

no indication of price but said that its lower in price than the 828

the new 5mp Leica/Panasonic is in stock for about a week already....... $1800 (Panasonic)

i heard from Cathay that it should be in by next week with price tag of S$1700 included GST.

now hard choice for me....should i get a 2nd hand 5060 for $950+ or should I fork out the extra few hundred for a new 8080 or even an 828....

the Sony 828 price for new set has dropped to $1600 at Cathay.

Are u refering to the new 5-megapixel Panasonic DMC-LC1? In the store already and selling for S$1,800? Too good to be true 'cos according to dpreview, the street price is US$1,500 and that works out to about $2,565. Even if it's cheaper in Singapore, it should be at least $2,200.

How many of you out there have bought this camera? Would like to know how's the image quality and the camera performance. How's the noise level at high ISO like 200 ~ 400?

Need some feed back, thanks.

Thinking of upgrading to this 8080 model. Anyone interested in my 5060 in standard package including filters? ;p
