    After waiting more than 1 month for a camera from Panasonic EPP and seeing the crazy prices on Ebay, I'm thinking that I would better get a GH1 for 350-400$ and wait for next year to upgrade (perhaps GH3).

    This way I get some time to learn how to use the camera (this would be my first SLR) and have more budget for lenses.

    Anyone, pros, cons?

    Thanks,
    Ionut

    Makes good sense. The GH2 has better IQ and video but the GH1 is still better than most of the competition. Good lenses are a long term investment - bodies come and go.

    I just bought it from BH (an open box for 350$ shipped).

    Thanks,

    As long as you don't feel you need the beefier video capabilities of the GH2, I think you should be fine!
