This is what the GF2 should have been.

Yes, and that´s why the GX1 is a bit on the boring side of things - too little, too late.

Sure, it's not got the latest and greatest technology but it's filled with tried and tested stuff, has great build quality and above all else takes very good pictures. I bought one because I missed my GF1, however, I was still slightly skeptical but having actually used it for a while, I can see the appeal – it's what the GF2 should have been, somewhat late but a very capable camera nonetheless with a lot to offer – best MFT sensor for stills, fast AF, lens selection, plenty of buttons, touch screen, metal body, level, etc.

Re some opinions in this thread, 1) there's nothing wrong with the flash, it looks solid to me. I can only imagine you have a giant's hands. 2) the recessed buttons are a nice touch, no more accidentally starting a movie recording. 3) build quality is excellent.
