Re: Where or how in the world do you get one?? (GH2)

It has everything to do with luck. I was very lucky in that I walked into my local camera store on my birthday, Dec. 23 on a whim just to see if they were even familiar with the thing. Lo and behold they had received one in stock the day before, and no one there knew anything about it. The sales guy said they sell a lot of Canon 7D's to students at the local film school (Full Sail), but didn't even know Panasonic was in the game.

I also recently lucked out by getting a Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 Nokton lens from a retailer in NYC cuz I was on a waiting list. Fortunately I got mine just before they sold out 'em that same day, which was very fast.

Just keep at it, I wish you the best =)

They are hard to find, you'll most likely have better luck trying to track down a silver model. GH1's are also hard to find. I don't understand these marketing decisions. Panasonic is notorious for this kind of thing.

Re: Where or how in the world do you get one?? (GH2)

Wow, you got lucky, they are VERY hard to find. I found mine at Cine Abel, thanks to a good samaritan that mentioned they had a few two weeks ago.

For my second camera I feel very confident the GH1 will be an excellent 2nd camera, and is half the price. I plan on two of those.

Re: Where or how in the world do you get one?? (GH2)

You are likely fine, but I am disappointed with Adorama. I ordered an ac coupler for the GH2 and it still shows as in stock (or at least it did as of a couple days ago) but it is backordered, as indicated when I went to my account to see what happened. I've written them once, and have recieved no reply.

I have a wedding, and can pull it off, but my beautiful new external power supply will have to sit on the sidelines.

I've ordered from them since, but as of yesterday I now purchase only from B&H, as I used to. I can't trust Adorama after this stupid incident over a $15 part. If I need something that only they have I'll use them again, but only when I have to.

I too have seen them on Ebay, forgot about that. The prices I saw were high, but if you don't mind paying a premium, they are there!

I ordered my GH2 with Panasonic Direct EPP on Dec 1st and received it two week later .I pre-ordered the Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 from Photo Village in NYC about the same time and received it a few days after getting the GH2.

I got mine from Camera Kings about a week before Christmas. They had a bunch in stock at the time.

Good luck. They're out there.
