I thought this deal was dead. I saw it the other day and went back to look for it and saw the GH4 was $1197 on B&H’s site.

I know the GH5 is out now and that it’s a big deal, but the GH4 is still a solid camera that shoots 4K video as well.
You can find the deal while it lasts (through May 20, I think) here at B&H Photo.
