    I can vouch for Roberts too, I bought from them on Amazon for that price and it was brand new in box, just a damaged box. Would definitely buy from them again.

    Seriously tempted! I am going to wait for the E-P3 to get to that price, should be soon.

    Got a GX1 but I'm buying a spare one. With the $40 Panasonic battery, that makes the camera only $160!

    Unless you want a GH_, it seriously makes no sense to buy a Panasonic model that is less than a year old. The prices that these bodies fall to are crazy. I was very happy with my GX1 at (if I remember correctly) $650 just over a year ago. I like some things about my E-M5 more, but the GX1 is still a great and very capable camera.

    Wow, they sold 50 at that price. That was a pretty substantial inventory! Mine will be here next Wed. Still not sure why I bought it when I just got the G5, but I suppose an inexpensive smaller backup isn't a bad thing. (That's what I'm telling myself anyway.)

    I would say there is at least one exception to that, the 9 month old G5 model :) There have been so many crazy package deals lately, it's hard to see prices going too much lower, and the camera is a solid upgrade from the G3 (which may be selling at a higher price than the recent G5 deals anyway?)

    I just got a G5 and have the GX1 on the way. Perfect combo imo.

    Yes. Too bad you're on the other side of the globe. I'd buy you a drink. :smile:
