Camera is awesome but BUYER BEWARE!!!

Love this camera. The stabilization has changed the way I film weddings. It's a thing of beauty to use a 70-200mm lens on a monopod for wedding toasts. The dual card slots is great to have. As one card runs out it switches to the next. I haven't played with the variable frame rate for slow mo video or the 4:2:2 but this is the most excited I've been to get a camera since I first got my GH1 all the years back. So how can I rate this so high with my title? Well my warning is not a defect of the camera but rather the sellers on Amazon.
You see I ordered four Gh5's through Amazon. It explicitly states the USA version. The problem was of those four that I ordered only one was the USA version. The other's were the UK, Canada and Australia. Normally I couldn't care less. They are basically the same camera except for one big difference. If you look at your manual the non us versions state that the warranty is only valid in those other countries. Basically meaning those versions have no warranty in the U.S.
Once again, love the camera but CHECK YOUR MANUAL! Look on the second page of the manual for what country your camera is intended for or in the manual contents for what region the limited warranty is good for. Based on my experience you have a pretty good shot of getting a non-US version with absolutely no warranty and if you don't check now you might not realize this until it's too late.
