    Damn. I just bought another GF2. They have plenty of them though, if they don't sell and the price drops under $300, I'm in.

    That's a seriously cheap for a very good m43 body.

    So... these are just some of the bodies from the original daily deal that people have returned for whatever reason?

    Dang, I have zero need for another camera, but that price! :eek:

    Maybe if we all resist together...

    I think I've convinced myself that my GF3 is a better second body for me because it is fractionally smaller. Any other reasons to prefer the GF3? :rofl:

    One other point to mention about these Amazon deals. Sometimes they don't keep getting lower. Case in point is the Fuji X10. I had one; sold it; missed it; then saw it for ~ $360 on Amazon Warehouse back in May. Almost pulled the trigger, but figured the price would only improve. It's been about $100 more than that since then, just recently coming back down to the $360 mark.

    Moral of the story, if you want the GX1 jump on it now. It's a great deal, and might not get much better any time soon.

    I always thought the G/GHs were pretty big. Back when I had both a Olympus E420 and a GH1, they felt pretty much the same size.

    That would be me, and that's the drawback of being an early adopter. When I feel any regret, I look through the pictures I've taken since owning the gx1 and that helps

    Do you think that it has any kind of warranty? Can you buy a mack warranty for used cameras?

    The GX1 is almost exactly the same thickness as the GF3 with lens attached, but is a few mm longer. To me, thickness is the critical number--it determines how easily a camera slips into/out of a pocket (yes, that's where I carry mine a lot of the time).

    The GX1/GF3 is actually thinner than the E-PM1.
