    So, I have the Gf3 And a NEX C3. I want to get the GX1 as an upgrade for my GF3. Is it worth it if I can unload the GF3 as a kit with its original 14-42 lens. Just wondering.

    This thing just keeps dropping in price.

    In my opinion, yes. It's a nice bump in low light capabilities. And I want a hot shoe. And the controls. Not all those things may be important to you though. It's not like the GF3 is BAD. You could just put money toward a 45/1.8 instead =)

    I have the 20mm and the 45-200 zoom. But if you are saying its better in low light. I'll jump on a sale of it. Now, to save up for the RX-1

    Wow, $199 is crazy cheap. It was already tempting at 249...

    wow, this is getting really tempting for me.
    i am content with my GF1 for the most part - it is certainly enough camera for me, but the GX1 would be a nice step up. one of the big reasons for me holding off was the accessories i had for the GF1 (LFV1, extra battery). while the new body isn't that much, adding on new extras as well does add up.
    but my LVF1 & extra battery were recently stolen (along with a lens) so i have even less reason to hold onto the GF1. but replacing the lens (Oly 45mm) is still a higher priority.

    This price has me considering picking one up and I left the m43 format previously. I am always amazed at the rapid depreciation of these Panasonic bodies.

    Yep, still sold by Adorama.

    I prefer to buy from Amazon, but the shipping was more, so I ordered directly from Adaorma.

    I am on an E-PL1 now and mostly use legacy glass.

    Is this a big upgrade? Will I miss Olympus' in body image stabilization?

    Thanks all!

    Yes, it is a nice upgrade. But if you are using mostly legacy glass over 50mm or so you will miss the stabilization in conditions other than bright and sunny.

    You might want to consider this deal:
    Olympus Pen E PL3 Black 12 3MP Digital Camera with 14 42mm Lens 0205031000 | eBay

    The E-PL3 has the same resolution as the E-PL1 but the sensor is better. The downside is that you lose the built in flash.
