I live in San Antonio Tx, the seventh largest city in the USA. Just north lies Austin, a high tech city boasting a superb camera store, Precision Camera, We have a good one here Camera Exchange. But one cannot actually examine a G series Panasonic camera in either city. so I called Panasonic about that. They hapless fellow on the phone suggested Target, Wal Mart or Best Buy, none of which of course stocks a G series camera. I find it absolutely amazing that a supposedly high tech company has no idea which retailer handles its products. This is insane!

Question, does Panasonic seriously expect to sell many cameras in the $500+ range if no one can actually handle one, much less get advice from a real camera shop on the item? Sell on the internet is fine for the Jimmy Buffet Bamboo Steamer, but for expensive cameras, I don't see this happening.

For some reason Panasonic's cameras don't seem to be very popular in the US - I've no idea why, as I think they're very good.

Whenever anyone talks about Micro Four Thirds in the US, it also always seems to be in reference to the Olympus OMD EM5, not even the Olympus PENs get a look in!

I bet B&H and Adorama would have them all in stock, but it seems crazy to visit NYC when you're already in a major city.
