According to Engadget, it will be released April 24 at close to $1500. Not sure if they're talking in Japan, US or both.

That's a steep price for me and a big jump from the its predecessor, even with HD video added.

I'm a bit disappointed with the price (usually comparatively higher in the UK as well). Wish it could also be available as body-only so I could make my own choices about the lens since the kit zoom appears to add quite a bit to the cost. Oh well....

Bill,
I know, I saw it myself on the B&H page. Was thinking a while whether it made me laugh or just reflect on the strange coincidence. Was equally close to saying funny.

No offence or mockery intended towards you in any way, hope you didn't suspect that.

That ends up being $1,530.06 once converted to U.S. dollars. The U.S. price will definitely be no more than $1,500 but with all the time Panasonic is spending determining the US price, it could be at least $100 less than that.

Sorry Emmanuel, that's not what they're saying. Please read that page again -- they're saying it will be in Japan on April 24th, not the U.S., which still has to wait until June. No word on delivery dates to other markets yet as far as I can tell.

My apologies Chris.
A combination of wishful thinking and cognitive inadequacies.
