    I got my G1 (with 14-45mm kit lens) for $399 on closeout last fall. This was followed by a GF1 (body only) on closeout for $299 early this year. Now, a leftover GH1 (body only) has dropped to the $350-$399 range. I'm not dissatisfied with my G1 but I am curious: Does the GH1 have enough of an edge in image quality (especially at higher ISOs) to be worth picking up at this price? A GH2 would be lovely, but I won't be picking up any $1000-and-up cameras or lenses again until next year - at the earliest. My G1 could go to a deserving niece. Just asking. Video is not critical but might be nice. But if it's not worth it, fine.

    I moved from a G1 to GH1 and it was a worthwhile upgrade. It also adds video as you say.
