why did the guy @ B&H tell me not to bother with the GX 4/3?

For the money, he's probably right

An entry level dslr that is comparable to the GX1 in terms of performance, is probably cheaper, as is the glass. M43 is brand new, so there's no price pressure from used lenses, and they're still amortizing the development costs. That is as of right now. A year from now, as competition increases, that may change.

Granted, that's not taking size or profile into account... he probably thought he was doing you a favor, trying to save you some money.

However, if a dslr will get left at home because it's larger, bulkier, demands more attention, draws more attention, then it wouldn't be such a good deal.
