You also have a 50£ cashback on this product! So that makes it 270£. Also, the lens is standard 14-42mm one. Why is this not a bargain?

Silver GX1 body only is £300 at SRS (£250 after cashback). Or the Panasonic Lumix G3X + 14-42mm X PZ Lens (G3 has a viewfinder, a swivel screen etc) is £399 (£350 after cashback) at Wilkinson Cameras.

Poor Black Friday Deal. Original price for this thing only cost 429GBP. They then jacked the price up to GBP634.26 to start the "49% discount". They should only charged a total of 218.79GBP if starting the discount from 429GBP. Amazon has lost my trust this time, doing price fixing on item to entice you on buying their things.

Argued with amazon for 2 hours since 10am today, but they never admit their mistake, they say that why should I sell the camera so cheap to you. The receipt that arrived in my inbox only cost a total of 269.14GBP, but still they insist on charging me 321.30GBP. Only a 25% discount in the end of the day, come on amazon, wake up!

Anybody who has fallen to this trick shall contact amazon immediately and request a partial refund on the price fixing they have made!

I didn't feel happy either after I realised the jacked up price! Cancelled my order not because 20% discount on 430£ is a small amount, but because I felt cheated and coaxed into buying this!

They still advertise this with STD lens at 634 and same camera with dearer x power lens at 579 mmmm that's not right as others below agree. They're selling this body only at 309 ish and the std lens is only 99 Max so where's 234 extra from. This in black is 429 and the body only is same as silver one.

I got the deal today for the black friday week. When I saw the deal, I thought it was too good, even the claims were fullfilled in less than a minute. But I thought that for that price, 634£, it should include the X power lense, not the normal one. I bought it because I already have a G2, and several lenses, but not the X powerlense, so my idea was to have a second body and the new lense. But they only thing I could do is sell the lense, as I see no use for it, but I don't expect to get much for it. If it had the power zoom I would be happy.
I'm thinking seriously about cancelling my order :((((((
