    So I am seeing on eBay the GX1 new can be bought for $430 free shipping with the 14-42 lens.

    Amazon isn't far off at $450.

    Do any of you know of any other tricks or ways to get it even lower? I once saw a thread on an Amazon deal for $330! So now that's my benchmark...lol. Any advice or direction would be most appreciated!

    Buying used at a competitive price wouldn't bother me either!

    I got my GX1-14-42 3 weeks ago. A friend who works at a local shop threw me a deal at $413 including tax. Used or refurb were the only lower prices I could find. It's a wonderful camera, I'm glad I got it. :2thumbs:

    Amazon sold the body only like new for $260 or so a while back. Wait for it to come back. I get the feeling there are warehouses full of GX1s waiting to be firesaled off.

    Well I hope I got a decent deal then...I just wanted to upgrade my GF2 14-42mm to a smaller and thinner pancake lens for my trip to Africa next month.

    I'll be bringing my GH2 too! Now I think I need a crazy zoom lens. What's a better choice for a lens that will be used every now and then, the Panasonic 45-200 or more expensive 4-175 x?

    I took this picture of my sister and her bf with the on camera flash because it was so dark. Pointed it to the ceiling at an angle:
