    I'd love to.. but you know what? Panasonic Australia won't touch anything bought from OS, and the shipping costs are prohibitive for me if something goes wrong...

    That's something that has always bothered me about the camera/electronics companies. You can't tell me there's any meaningful difference between a GX1 shipped to Australia and one shipped to the U.S. And yet, they'll give you trouble with warranty and servicing. And it's one thing to not honor the warranty. But most of these companies won't service or repair a product even if you offer to pay for it. That's insane. Panasonic isn't alone - this is pretty much standard practice. It doesn't make it any less annoying.

    Except Fuji. Fuji Australia is even known to do service on grey purchases.
