Hi all, just looking thru the net and started to notice something, so I looked a bit more. using search engines like Dealtime, kelkoo, pricerunner etc, I found 17 suppliers of the FZ20. Of those 11 were out of stock, including big uk names like Dabs,C&A, Digital, Best Cameras, BTetc.

I also found out that dabs have de-listed the FZ20 though I havent managed to yet get a "reason" out of them. Digital state they do not know when stocks if/will next be availalbe, but weren't able to shed anymore light on the matter.

So do Pana have supply problems? Are they running it down?

Any thoughts or comments welcome.

Regards Woody

Panasonics UK website is also out of stok and has been like that for several days for the FZ20. The LC1 has the same issue. Not sure about the supply problem with the FZ20 but the wod out on the LC1 is that they are no longer being manufactured. New LCXX out soon perhaps.

The supply issue is due to the destruction of the Lumix factory in Japan by a giant monster.

Nick could it be an attack of the cookie monster too ? Could even be that Godzilla and the Cookie monster are working as a tag team to wipe out those FLuzies from the planet and dunk them in theyre tea.

I thought about using them, but they are import models with German manuals and foreign chargers etc. For the sake of the extra £15 I'd decided to get the proper UK model...

This is what I've got back from my supplier:

Unfortunately we are still chasing Panasonic up about the delay with this item. Although we do expect the delivery to come in soon we have not been given a definite delivery date from Panasonic yet. As soon as we do get delivery we will send this out on a next day service for you and we will email you to inform you of this.
