Hifellow Panasonics:-)

We're coming over to the US again next week and I need to get hold of an FZ5 or FZ30, I bought a Fuji S9500 but results were not as good as I'd hoped, my FZ1v5 produces sharper more detailed results!.

Anyway, I normally buy from B&H but their prices are high, the4 other dealers I've emailedwon't accept an "International" order even though shipping would be to our friends in Florida, I have ordered loads of stuff this way from B&H, Amazon, Viking Direct (my FZ1!) and InkjetGoodies. I've tried Beach Cameras, Prestige Cameras, Broadway Photo and A&M.

So, any suggestions where I can pick one up or even a dealer that accepts international orders?, if B&H would price match Beach Cameras I'd be a very happy bunny :-)

You can try a Circuit City in the Orlando area. They currently have the FZ5 for US$382.

Thanks folks :-)

I managed to find one on Ebay:!:

£381 ($647) including shipping and a 40x 1Mb SD Card. For the UK that's a very good price :-), most places are selling it for £439 ($745) without the card.

Still looking on Ebay though, my lovely wife dropped my FZ1v2 :shock:and even though I'm getting the FZ30 it was such a good camera I want another one, and there's not many things I've bought that I can say that about!.

I don't know for sure if they have Ritz Camera/Wolf Camera in the Orlando area, but if they do, check them out. They have the FZ1 on sale as a closeout for $179-$199. If you can find one, this might be the place to get it.

It's good that there are more than one. If the first one you try is out of stock, they can probably check their computers or call other stores to see if they can locate one for you. Good luck.
