Amazon direct will indeed not be carrying the VT30 (nor will any other authorized internet only retailer without a B&M to sidestep this policy). The third party market place sellers will (like Digital Plaza
currently listing it), but not Amazon themselves. This is an official policy of Panasonic's designed to preserve dealer's margins, maintain the value of the brand/product, and control pricing. The VT25 was the same way last year, only appearing briefly through Amazon direct near it's EoL clearance IIRC. This is shame, because I'm not aware of any other internet retailers that offer free shipping (both ways), a no questions asked return policy, and free financing offers like Amazon direct.
