    I think it's just an absurdist Marx brothers type joke. Like, people are buying the camera on an accelerated timetable, before it's even announced. Which shouldn't be possible. Take that a logical step further, and you've already purchased and returned or resold yours. Except that you also don't know what it is, which should be impossible if you already came into possession of it.

    And yeah, I totally agree that if you don't pre-order within the first hour of announcement, you won't get yours for 6 months after release

    Preorder now, read later.

    Preordering within the first minute would be best to get it ASAP. (You could always cancel later if you don't like what you see.)

    All new cameras will likely be delayed a bit based on the status of the most recent offerings.

    Speaking to the original thread of this conversation: I am still very interested in the GH6. I've been anticipating its release for years now. My GH5 bodies have been a joy to work with but they're getting a little long in the tooth. I'm excited by the currently known specs of the GH6 (5.7K 60p 10-bit and 4K 120p) and I'm eager to know the rest of its abilities.

    Here's my spec wish list:

    1. higher bit-rates and/or less-compressed codecs.
    2. Dual native ISO
    3. built-in ND filter
    4. Image stabilization in all modes
    5. larger battery and/or a better external power solution
    6. Improved AF

    I never use AF, so that's last on my list. But it would be nice to have.

    What are the odds that the GH6 release and distribution will be plagued by the current supply chain problems that are driving up prices in electronics/autos/etc.? Should we pre-order now to avoid paying an inflated price?

    As far as the camera, I'm not interested anymore...in any of them.

    NorBro already returned his. Soon, he'll find out what exactly it was.

    If you can believe what you read online I saw a October 27 or 29th date for a GH6 announcement.

    I was goofing off .. but ... if it's a hot model with a limited upfront run, one would have to buy a model at a discount shop such as Abe's of Main and then sell it at above retail on a popular gear site (or, perhaps, eBay). The problem is that the margins are getting slimmer and slimmer. Abe's selling R5, as an example, for $3,700 and they have (imported) units in stock. So, one'd need to have a global shortage of R5's to get somewhere around $4,200 for it. It's not impossible but one needs several factors, including timing, working in his favor. For most people, it's not worth the trouble.

    PS. In the car market, hot new pieces like Supra, Veloster N, Civic R, C8, Taycan, etc. have sticker prices far above the MAP. The manufacturers frown upon it but the dealers try to find a way to make more on a hot model regardless.
