    I had read about Best Buy now selling Olympus Pen and Panasonic cameras, and as I was near a store I dropped in. The sales clerk knew about cameras, but didn't know about m 4/3 or at least didn't know the name of that format. We talked while, and when we went to where they had a Pen camera, she spotted the GF2 and said that they must have placed that there the night before. Thing is, they only have the 14-200mm lens in stock for the GF2, and I am not that up on the Olympus lens but it only had a similar zoom in stock for it. As she pointed out the GF2 didn't look all that small with that 14-200 zoom attached. I told her that once she saw a 20mm lens she would change her mind.

    Yes, I saw one thre as well. What I would like to see here is images produced with that camera and some feedback.
    It seems that no one is using the GF2

    Best Buy has been carrying m4/3 for a while now. When I used to work there we carried the E-PL1 and E-P1, but had to fight to be able to stock it, so all locations may not be stocking m4/3.

    Earlier this year Best Buy's website had a refurbished E-P1 + 17mm 2.8 kit for $350!

    There is a GF2 thread in the Panasonic area of this site. People don't post frequently but there are plenty of examples. I will be sure to upload additional photos shortly.
