[Updated: 26 May 2009] Reports from local forums indicated that there’s a 10% off the list price if paid in cash and 5% off if under 24-month installment plan.

[21 May 2009] This from local Hong Kong forum, the Panasonic Lumix GH1 will be on sale on 26 May 2009 and the price tag, a whopping HK$12,990 (US$1,667) with the 14-140mm F4-5.6 kit lens.  As for the 7-14mm F4, the price is HK$9,790 (US$1,255).  Not sure about you all but I’m definitely getting this baby especially after watching the following video (watch it in HD format).

  1. Wow, didn’t realise the GH1 costs that much! So much for an autofocus HD-video SLR…

  2. I’d got Panasonic Lumix GH1 last month and it is quite a gem. It has a phenomenal rubbery surface to itself, which improves both a grip and aesthetics.

    Only slightly annoying thing with it is that it is just so small, that it completely disappears in your hand. Actually, I tried several cameras of that size in the shop and that was a problem with all of them. But at least it is easy to carry around.

    Few days ago I did some pics with GH1, so come and check them in my blog. Cheers, Andy
