(DEAD) Panasonic GF5 w/14-42mm Power zoom for $500
The 4-hour specials on the Panasonic GF5 with the 14-42mm power zoom for $500 ended. The white kit was 100% claimed but the other two body colors were decidedly not greeted as liberators.
Speaking of Panasonics, if you are interested in stock-piling the above Panasonic M43rds lenses by taking advantage of the above promotion, the Panasonic GH2 body only currently going for $500 may be a/the means to that end. You can buy up to four lenses with the GH2 in the same shopping cart, and get up to four discounts in the same shopping cart. If you need more, you can do this one more time (another GH2/other-eligible-camera with up to four lenses). Promotion expires Dec-29-2012 (or earlier/later).
For more specials as they happen, check the Camera Deals blog... Expired items after the jump...
Ending at 9:30pm eastern (or earlier) at the Camera & Photo Lightning Deals at Amazon [click on the blue arrow on the right side of the widget to see them], the Panasonic GF5 with the 14-42mm Power Zoom lens is offered for $500 with free shipping, in black, red, or white. You must purchase through the lightning deal widgets to get the discounted price... In the meantime, you can research the camera at its product page and its list of completed reviews. Since there are three body colors, each one will be sold individually as a product, so the 100% Claimed and Waiting List and Completely Sold Out routine will be different for each color. This is a 4-hour promotion, so it will end at 9:30pm ET if they don't sell out before then. Needless to say, the price will be the main factor that determines how fast they sell out or if they sell out.
Unfortunately the GF5 with the 14-42mm Power Zoom kits are not eligible for the Panasonic Combined Purchase Lens Discounts promotion which expires Dec-29-2012 (or earlier/later). We just tried all three colors and they don't work.
