Sadly this does not surprise me, as the Panasonic GH5 is already looking to be the most sought after mirrorless camera of 2017.
Panasonic Japan has announced that customers who have ordered a Lumix GH5 may face a longer wait due to the high number of pre-orders. The camera is scheduled for release on March 23, and Panasonic is prioritising pre-order shipments. The GH5 was officially announced at the beginning of January, and Panasonic targeted a ‘late March’ shipping timeframe in its initial announcement.
As long as they prioritise their orders for the UK first !
