Original post after the jump for the deal historians only... For future specials as they happen, be sure to visit and bookmark and share the Camera Deals blog... Don't look at the calendar now, but we are only four months away from Black Friday :-)
UPDATE (2pm ET): The Panasonic 12-35mm (m43rds) lens is now in-stock for its normal price of $1300 at Amazon by Amazon.com itself.
There is a new round of Camera & Photo Lightning Deals at Amazon for Friday, headlined by the black Panasonic GF3 with the 14-42mm PZ X lens. This special will start at 9am Eastern Time and end at 1pm Eastern (or earlier if sold out). The price will be revealed at the aforelinked page at 9am ET. We do not know the prices ahead of time and we won't be able to update this blog-post until after the GF3X special has gone live. Historically, Camera and Photo Lightning Deal prices have been all over the place, some so good they sell out in minutes on one end of the spectrum, others so bad, they are %-claimed in single figures. Only time will tell! If you want to research this camera kit ahead of time, here is the product page.
