They brought them in from Europe...I am not going to set the bar too high for the FZ100...the CMOS sensor cameras require lots of fine tuning to get decent shots and then post processing...and thats the way it's looking on the FZ100...but they do a nice job on macros...but I already have that covered and you do too...you can't beat the FZ35...I am wanting the FZ45 for the 24X zoom hoping it doesn't lose any IQ...

We'll surely see in a few weeks...

Clint hit these guys up for their return policy and order one from them and try it out to give us some feed back then send it back...I'll be waiting...lol

Clint and LTZ-

The FZ-100 is widely available in Hong Kong right now, and it is just getting to Europe. Amazon should have in stock within 14 days. There will always be vendors who bring them in from some place else in the world, and charges a premium price for them.

It will be interesting to see what the final price will be.
The Panasonic site is listing it at $450 now.

Distribution of the FZ-100 is now available in Central Europe, and the UK.

I wondered about that also - I guess we'll see soon enough.

Default FZ100 User Reports

Some actual users are over on DP review, posting a few pictures and their comments.

So far, the few users seem to like the picture quality. The nitpickers are running for cover.

Definitely want to get this, but will hold out until it is really released in the US. I just can't justify spending an extra $50 to $100 (Ebay has some for $600.) to have it a few weeks sooner.

I also wonder how the warranty works if you buy a camera released for and intended for sale in another country? Maybe it's still ok, but like I say, I'll wait.
