I have been contemplating what camera body to get to upgrade my poor little GF2 (I picked the wrong horse to bet on with that one). Lucky me got a PL 25mm lens for Christmas so now the money I was saving for that lens is available to get a new body. The G5 looks really good to me, main reason is the built in viewfinder which I think will greatly help me to get in the zone when I take pictures and shoot more keepers. On the other hand some GX1 body's are available for 300$ brand new, but then I would really want the LV2 accessories so that puts my budget on even terms with the G5. A little voice inside is telling me I should wait a little longer and see if there is a GX2 coming maybe. Most certainly the price on that would be higher then my current budget, but if the product is great, I will sell my body to get what I want. Many threads I read here hoping to make a decision, but I haven't seen a compelling case for choosing between these 2 products. Finally, to help understand my needs, I usually shoot my 2 wonderful kids as an enthusiast, but I do have a drive to search for events or objects in life that are worth a click. Right now I am busy being a dad so not much focus on photography, but eventually I would like to chase the perfect picture moments as a full time hobby.
