Camera's fine, sensor not the best high-iso but still has good sharpness

It is soon the birthday of my girlfriend and she would like to have a nice, cheap and small camera she would take everywhere with her. I am a m43 user (E-pl2 with the 12mm, 20mm, 45mm, 9-18mm, 14-42mm and 40-150mm) so I thought I could buy her a small m43 camera and she could use a few of my lenses. Then I found out that the Panasonic GF2 with the 14mm can be found for 238.- swiss francs only. That would be about 250$ or 200€. As I already have the 12mm, i don't really need the 14mm but still it looks like a crazy deal. So is there something really wrong with the Panasonic GF2?

That's a great price, the GF2 is a nice camera, I used one for a year or so. High iso isn't quite as good as newer m4/3 cameras but sharpness is excellent and the touch screen makes it a nice camera to use, auto mode works well and the built in flash is handy.
