    The great little GX1 just keeps falling...

    I don't know how long it been this low, but B&H currently looks to have everyone beat, with $329 for a new, black GX1 body.

    I still think the G3 is the best bang for the buck M43 body.

    I agree, the G3 is a good value. However, after using a G3 for hundreds of pictures on an assignment one day, side-by-side with my GX1, I preferred the overall handling and feel of the GX1 (though no viewfinder or articulating screen is a negative). I later sold my G3 and purchased a second GX1.

    It's funny that I get tempted even though there is no reason for me to buy this given that I already have two PEN bodies. The money is better spent on lenses. The G3 is much more tempting since I'd at least have the comfy ergs of the Panny baby-DSLR body style.

    Interesting how strong the competition is.

    After seeing the $329 price on B&H I checked Amazon, but they were still $450-ish.

    With 2 PEN bodies, the GX-1 doesn't interest me as much as the G3, but for someone just getting into m43 who doesn't want an EVF or wants a modular option, this looks to be a really good deal.

    The G3 is definitely pretty comfy for a small camera. But if you look at the lines of the GX1 (I've never owned one) it appears to have almost exactly the same contours, but perhaps with a better-textured grip. Plus the handling should be nicer with more Fn buttons.

    And even though the G3 is a better value for money, I'd trade my G3 for a silver GX1 in a heartbeat, as a smaller backup/pocket cam to my OMD.

    Argh! You folks cost me money. :redface: I broke down and got a G3 body for $250. The GX1 isn't that tempting since I have an E-PL5 (just too similar), but I missed having the G-style body with an EVF for long lenses. As much as I like the small size of the PENS, the G's have the best "in the hand" ergs for me. The G3 and the E-PL5 with just fit nicely in the Domke 5Xa . . .

    Actually B&H had a used one for $195. With 10$ shipping for the used one and free shipping for the new one, it was a $40 difference and even I'm not that cheap. Now I have to go read all those Panasonic threads about using the G3. At least I have all the "black art" info about the G3 right here on Mu43.:smile:
