Another disappointed with BF deal, 7 Dec 2012
I just wanted to point the message I saw a few days ago:
" Item Under Review
This product is not currently offered by Amazon.co.uk because a customer recently told us that the item he or she received was not as described.
We are working to resolve this as quickly as possible. In the meantime, you may still find this product available from other sellers on this page. "
I'm sure a lot of people complained about the mislead of the bf deal, first because of the price, second because of the image. Only after waiting for the moment the offer started, and clicking directly into the waiting list, achieving to put the camera into the basket, and pay for it, I realised about the text. In the beginning I thought it was a typo, but then I read other reviews in the item, and comments, and understood that this was no mistake.
Now they changed the price, from £634.26 to £419.99, and then changed the image to the normal 14-42 lens, that I already had, and wasn't interested in obviously. One of my first reasons to buy the kit was to get my hands in the powerzoom lens, to complement my G2, as I have some m43 lenses already, but I wasn't lucky with it. I have to say though, the prices for the GX1 in amazon went wild this month xD
About the camera itself, I haven't opened the box yet, so I can't tell, but there are lots of reviews around, and anyone can tell it's a good camera, not outstanding, but on top of any P&S.
