It,s OK. I looked it up, I can get one from the states for about $230 delivered to OZ.

The absolute rip-off merchants at Panasonic Australia want $349 for the LT55 and $69 for the converter. A new FZ35 can be had for about $550. So they want $420 + postage??? Even at exchange rates that's about USD$380.

They really are idiots. I mean at a much lower price they would sell heaps. And stores might actually bother stocking them. Far out.

It's no wonder the Zeikos mob must be laughing all the way to the bank flogging thousands of their crappy sub $100 knock offs, bad quality or not.
