Panasonic GF1 and M43 lenses stock-status matrix

Now that the Panasonic GF1 has been officially announced, it is time to take a look at the latest stock status using our handy stock-status-matrix format. Currently it is in the pre-order stage. In the US market, only the black kits are available for pre-order at the moment. The estimate is for October shipping. You can learn more about the camera by check its list of reviews at the DSLR Review Organizer, or check out the new mini-site that focuses on Micro Four Thirds reviews and nothing else, You may also be interested in the E-P1 stock-status matrix, along with the ones for the E-P2 and the brand new E-PL1.

Latest Update: Mon June 28 at 9:39pm EST - GF1 with 14-45mm includes a free LVF1 viewfinder for $745 at a couple of retailers... camera body prices remain relatively stable, but lenses are pulling a disappearing act once again
