Does anyone know who has the Panasonic DMC-TZ5 in stock yet?

RRP in the US is $349! That's only £175
I'm buying there, shipping to my aunt!

If buying in the US, is the power supply and charger OK to use in the UK?

They're almost always 110-240V - just need a travel convertor. Same for everything I buy out there. Normally there isn't such a huge difference and I'm too impatient but for £125(!) I will!

sounds like a plan. Thanks for the advice.

Most panasonic chargers have a standard figure 8 connector in them with the relevant lead added depending on territory. Just change the mains plug and your away (and its more compact than an adaptor).

Just in case anyone was considering buying from US or Canada.
I've just bought my LUMIX DMC-TZ5, from Canada and it works perfectly in the UK.
The TZ5 charger is a unit that holds the battery and plugs directly into the wall socket, no separate mains cable. So all thats required is a US 2pin converter to the UK 3pin. (shaver adaptor?)
The charger is 110-240v 50/60Hz so no worries re power.
All in all a good buy, saved £80 on the UK price.
Very, very good camera, as we probably all know by now.

Just got mine for £192.95 from 7dayshop.com

Ive been looking at getting this camera , buying from the US seems like a bargain. Does anyone know any good reliable US sites that will ship to the UK :-D

The US or Hong Kong version will not come with a charger with the UK 3-pin Plug, you will need a converter.

I've been keeping an eye on the TZ% for over a month and then decided to get ti from 7dayshop for £192.95 delivered. Myself and others have shopped from this site before, reliable and reputable.
