GH1 Australian price drop

Looks like Panasonic Australia have finally lowered the pricing of the GH1 to bring it more in line with world prices. They've dropped the rrp to $1999 (down from $2599) and some stores are selling the kit for around $1800 (down from $2400 on average).

So now after currency conversion we are only paying about 20% more than customers in the US, rather than about 90% more.

It's now almost on par with the 550d price wise, especially if you buy body only for $1300 at Camera House. Makes me kinda regret buying mine two months ago!

Yeah, bought mine last weekend after sitting on the idea of purchasing it for ages, saw the price drop and went for it. I got the body only at Camera-Action Camera House in Melbourne city and got it for $1200. Was pretty happy, and considering I already had a set of Zeiss primes and had already gotten an adapter for them for the GH1 a couple months back, figured I could live without the kit lens. With the hack installed this camera has been incredible so far. I'm absolutely loving it! Shooting a commercial with it this week, so will see how it goes in a 'real world' scenario.
