Default Good Price On FZ200

The FZ200 is going for a good price right now ($297.99) if anyone is looking.

One option but there are others.

I purchased the FZ200 on October 28th from Amazon for $447.97. I kept following the price changes on Amazon and B&H. I received an email newsletter from B&H at the end of November and saw that the B&H price dropped to $297.99. I knew that Amazon would be offering the FZ200 for that same price.

I contacted Amazon and asked if they could refund me the difference between the price I paid and the new price. Basically, because I was asking for the refund in the difference more than 7-days after I bought the camera, the only way I could receive the difference was to return the original camera, receive a full refund for that price ($447.97) and then re-order the camera at the current low price.

This seems like such a waste on Amazon's part. It's a waste of a perfectly good camera that now will either be sent back to Panasonic or be sold as a used product. It's a waste of money for Amazon because of all the processing of the return and the pre-paid postage label they gave me.

Why not just extend the refund/price protection policy out to 30-days, instead of wasting all that time, money, and product with the return and re-order process.

I did re-purchase the camera for the lower price and I did receive a full refund to my credit card for the original higher price I paid, but it all could have been handled more efficiently, I think.

Default FZ200 - Best place to purchase

Hello I currently have a FZ35 and want to upgrade to the FZ200. Can anyone recommend the best place to purchase online or store? I would also be willing to purchase a used FZ200, but would like your suggestions on the best place to purchase.

Thank you!

I would look at B&H and Amazon. (Currently $447.99)

If used I would keep my eye on KEH.

I jumped on the Black Friday price of $297.99 at B&H. Upgraded from the FZ35 and loving it.
