Default UK: FZ10 for 353 (inc VAT & delivery)

See here:

I might hold off for another week to see if any retailers can better this.

Sounds good considering Jessops and Panasonic are asking 449.

Notice from their web page that the camera is a "Special order only" with a possible wait of 14-days.

As you say it is the cheapest price so far, a number of dealers who have the camera in stock are selling it at 379 plus post and packing.

At the moment I am still checking the web for reviews and have also downloaded some images from Panasonic Japan which give a good indication of the cameras image quality.

I might take the plunge in the next couple of days!!

Did you have to pay Import Duty and 17.5% VAT?

I have bought secondhand lenses from a USA dealer and had to pay Import Duty and VAT plus it also applied to the post and packing!


If the camera developed a fault I would be interested to know if Panasonic UK would repair it under the guarantee or whether it would have to be returned to the original USA dealer.

Pana UK do honour the warranty on their products irrespective of where bought. Or at least that's the case with the FZ10, and I can't see that being an exception to the rule.

I had debated importing, but you would almost certainly end up with import duties on top. It's not quite a straight 17.5% either, you won't know exactly how much until it turns up on your doorstep. I also considered the possible power supply problems and how likely it would be that you could get any guarantee problems dealt with. In the end I decided that the likely small saving wasn't worth the potential problems.

QED-uk is Miller Brothers

You don't have to use them just do what I did and pricematch.

umm i cheated, i sent camra to a friend in US first, for them to try it, they now ready to get the cheeper FZ2.. their choice, this also bypass possible import duty he he

anything above 150 quid is import taxed i believe !

and yes worldwide guarantee is exactly that, and charger is 110v to 240v so no probs in uk..

rules n broken spring to mind lol
