This is the OP... Thank you guys for the advice/input... This is great forum...

I do not like Sony because i worked for Panasonic (Automotive business)...

I considered EM-10 because it is cheaper...

I am now 80% decided with GX7 with kit 14-42... ($874) from BH/Adorama...

Is this good deal? this is the best i have seen this week... cheaper than amazon...

I am leaning towards adorama because their spill/drop warranty is cheaper $65 for 5 years...

Should I pull the trigger now? I can wait 2-3 more weeks... I am now excited to pull the trigger on this... and want to order today

It's a good camera, on two assumptions... One being that you need to shoot video, in which case, Panasonic all the way. The second that you have a need for PDAF at some point or another... Otherwise as I keep coming back to... You're spending $500 more on an E-PL5 which has the same feature set minus the video and minus the ability to mount Four Thirds lenses...
