I've read a rumour that the PZ85U will be exclusive to Futureshop, I don't know if it's true.
I went to another store, and asked if they had anything on the 2008 Panasonic tvs, and all they had in their systme was the PZ80U, with no date and no price.
Previous posts on this forum mentionned April as release date for Canada, and Panasonic Canada was supposed to update their site at the end of this month. So I think we only have to wait.
Hopefully, they will adjust their prices and it will be closer to the US price. I'm sorry, but at 600$ difference, I don't care if I'm making it worst for our situation, but I'll be buying it in the US. 600$ for a tv of this price, that's between 1/3 of the MSRP. Way too much. I can accept a 10-15% difference at most, but not 30%.
