As of today, the Panasonic Lumix LX5 camera guide book is listed on Amazon.com as “In Stock,” but with the notice that it takes extra time to ship, so people need to order early if they want it for Christmas. Actually, I believe it would ship quite quickly now, because the print-on-demand company is now fully geared up to print the book with the revised PDF files.
At Amazon.co.uk, the progress is still slow; the book is listed as “Temporarily Out of Stock,” but now there is one other third-party seller (besides me), a company located in the UK that can ship the books quite quickly. So, in that sense, the book now is in stock for shipment in the UK. No one has ordered one from me lately, so if any are being sold in the UK, it’s by Amazon.co.uk with orders that they will fill later, or by the other third-party seller.
I’m making fairly good progress on the book about the Leica D-Lux 5, but it looks as if it will be a few more weeks before I can finish it.
Slow and steady (on the Leica D-Lux 5 book, that is) wins the race! I, for one, am patiently waiting and look forward to re-discovering my new camera once I finally have your book in hand, Alex.
On a side note, I am a technical writer/editor with over 18 years of experience, and as an newly-avid D-Lux 5 owner/user it would be my pleasure to help proofread the book (would still lay down my dosh for it, of course).
Hi, K2 — Thanks for offering to proofread the D-Lux 5 book. It's not quite to that stage yet, but if you'll send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, I can let you know the progress and make some arrangements.
