Club Panasonic is selling the DMC-GF2 with 14-42mm for $398 --
through Facebook, and othersie $409... there is something else coming...
Shoulda put it in this forum, but check this out too.
Don't have to deal with Panasonic Direct. GF2 at $400 would put the 45-200mm at $250 which is still $50 cheaper than usual. Or GF2 at retail would make this lense $50. Either way, it's a good deal
you can also get the dmc-gf2 with the 14mm for $599
Panasonic now has a "Direct Deal" on its Facebook page for the GF2 + 14-42 zoom. The price that came up for me is $379.
The EPP pricing that I have access to at the panasonic site has been $349 (plus tax/ship which I think is free) for over a month. Still doesn't beat the deal earlier this year for a GH1 and free 14-42 for $400 plus tax though.
You guys think this price makes it a better value than a GF3, ELP2 or whatever new stuff is coming?
nope. but, if you want compact at the cost of ergonomics (using a touchscreen for almost everything is NOT ergonomical) it is a decent deal. Based on the top down shot of the new E-PM1, without a spec sheet or any other info I'd take in in a heartbeat over the current GF2 or upcoming GF3. Cameras need some buttons to retain functionality - if everything is on a touch screen, you'll never be in direct contact with your subject, and the point of a photo - capturing a moment - is kind of lost, since you're not part of that moment anymore. Ok, that was overly philosophical, sorry, haha! Seriously though, you need at least SOME tactile control.
