Thanks for the tip, but I think the Fuji's are considerably out of my budget

For reference, I can get

PEN E-PL3 £270

GF3 £265

NX200 £295

All brand new with their respective kit lenses. The Fuji x pro 1 is over a £1k and the xe1 is not far off that amount either.

I'm looking to spend certainly less than £500 and ideally on just the body with a pancake, rather than the kit lenses.

Curry's have a few of the very good Panasonic Gx1`s left, £299 including kit lenses.

Shop around and you might find something fitted with a 20.

LCE have a GF2 + 14mm here, although its a bit wider than you want, but its a nice little package.

And I`ve seen a few GF3 twin lens kits, 14-42 _ 14mm for about £350.
