I have just received a pricematch instore at John Lewis Cardiff for a Panasonic Lumix G1 Camera. It is currently selling for £489 instore and online.

John Lewis were able to pricematch with a store called Fotosense. They are also offering a free 3 Year Warranty + £30 Cashback from Panasonic (this offer is valid until 31/01/2010) which effectively makes the price £409!

They also are offering a Lumix G Vario 45-200mm lens for £160 instead of £320 with the purchace of this camera. Online this lens sells for around £280 seperately.

An in depth video review of this camera can be found at:

The exciting new Panasonic G1 banishes the notion that all SLR cameras are bulky. This impressively compact model combines a downsized body with advanced camera features. 12.1 megapixel resolution, interchangeable lenses

Not going to make it cold, but Panasonic's GF1 is a MUCH better option.

I expect the G1 to come down much more over coming months.

you would be looking at paying around £170 more to get a Lumix GF1 & 14-45mm Lens. Then consider the additional cost of the clip on viewfinder and any other lenses. This deal is a LOT cheaper.

(also a 3 year warranty is usually an extra £47 but you get that free in this deal)

"Other lenses" applies to either camera. And the viewfinder isn't essential.

Also, the 3-year warranty is being offered by many online retailers and is standard in-store. See: http://www.panasonic.co.uk/html/en_GB/Dealers/Lumix+G+Dealer+Locator/3+Year+Warranty+T&Cs/1775851/index.html

G1 is a great camera and this is a great deal.

GF1 lacks the grip and has no flip out screen, as well as lacking the viewfinder which was already mentioned. G1 just lacks movie mode as far as I am concerned. If they were the same price, I would probably still have picked the G1. They are quite different cameras at the end of the day and should appeal to different people.

Not wishing to hijack, but has anyone seen the 20mm pancake f1.7 for cheaper than 279.99? Be nice to compliment the kit lens.
