4 out of 5 eggsPanasonic DMC-G2K (Black) 12.1MP

Pros: Excellent turnaround, as usual, from Newegg. Received my Panasonic DMC-G2K, via UPS, in one day! From the online reviews, this is supposed to be a great camera.

Cons: The camera, that I received from Newegg, was manufactured in CHINA. Compared to a colleagues "made-in Japan" DMC-G2K (purchased through Panasonic Direct), the made-in-China G2K (outwardly) appears somewhat cheapened. Instead of paying a hefty restocking fee, I have decided to sell my Chinese-made G2K to another colleague ... at a slight loss.

Other Thoughts: I purchased a Panasonic Lumix (point & shoot) DMC-TS2S and DMC-ZS7K, from Newegg, in early July of this year. Both cameras were made / manufactured in Japan and are, at present, performing flawlessly. From what I now understand; Panasonic does manufacture "some" items in China ... in order to meet Global Demand. Panasonic states that their China-made items are manufactured to the same standards as those made-in-Japan. Not so!!

In the future, I will be making major camera purchases at a facility, or reseller, where I can physically see what I'm purchasing ... even at full retail price. It would be nice if Newegg included "country of manufacture" in the item Details screen / page.
