I Purchased my GS100K yesterday in Akihabara....I found this shop through kakaku.com which is also linked to price japan.

The cheapest shop was 118,000yen but I wanted black. Calling down the list in order of location convenience and price, after 15 shops I found one in Akihabara with black in stock. 119,000. The next morning this shop had changed its price to 117,800 the cheapest on the list and I went straight in and picket up my black beuty. 117,800 plus 5% tax. Then bought the 6HR panasonic battery for 14,000yen inc Tax.

Strange shop however, It had plastic sandles for sale out the front and digital gadgets strung up all over the joint,

No hi-tech feel about the place with unhelpful staff, and my purchase was over in 3 minutes from walking in the door.

Cheers ,

Lincoln

Congratulations Lincoln!

Ha-ha, the shop describes very well Japan I guess.

Outside world usually is bad informed about the reality in Japan so this might help to many people to imagine what it is like.

Lincoln, let me guess, Royal?

By the way, that store looks better than most other discount shops (LOL) and at least, the sellers wear tie. Most of them look like small warehouses with nothing but a desk and lots of boxes at the back.

You're very lucky You beat me by an hour or so (too bad the wife ate very slowly in the morning). Now the black beauty seems nowhere to be found again, except in regular stores. Oh well..

Happy shooting to you!

Allan, is your wife Japanese?

This Japanese wifes are always slow to spend some more money on something good (electronics particularly).

I was almost ready to divorse as my cam stayed 3 days in the shop, while people from US were getting theirs for 2 days!

Hello,

I received 2 Black GS100Ks from Price Japan on Wed August 6 after ordering on Monday August 4th. I have two as I am going to use them for stereo video. Lots of learning ahead here.

No problem Lincoln, I got a black one 2 days later but not from Royal...had to check nearly 50 discount shops before I finally got one! It's not mine actually... Anyhow, you'd better take care of your Black Beauty...it's truly a LIMITED edition model.

Bogdan, the wife is non-Japanese. Up to now, I had the impression that Japanese wives are easier to convince (buying) based on my experience with a Jap girlfriend. So when they become wives, they're all basically the same after all (LOL).

Enjoying Obon holidays!

Allan, I envy you for the black beauty. When told from my shop I have to wait unspecified time to have one I decided to have the silver immediately.

Envy you for the wife too - with Japanese you can't have slow breakfast you know.
