    Hmmm doing a google search brings up an Australian tech retailer claiming to have available stock 'at the supplier' of this config:
    FZ-A2A200GAA

    so does anyone know exactly what that is?

    Quoted price is under A$2k so that's a lot better than when they first appeared!

    Righto I have come across another local Australian supplier listing three different FZA2 model codes. There's
    FZ-A2A200GAA

    as mentioned previously, but also
    FZ-A2A200MAA

    and
    FZ-A2A202MAA

    Righto found yet another Aussie site with all three listed, and it's smartly listing the different specs...

    The first one is a std config pricing under A$2k, the second one adds 4g MBB (mobile broadband) support pricing around A$2.3k, and the last one also adds a barcode reader pricing a bit under A$3k. There might be other differences I can't figure out yet.

    Does anyone know how good (or bad) the built-in MBB radio hardware is?
