From Oly E-PL2 to Pana GF2? OMG!

so I have had the Olympus E-PL2 for less than a year now.. and the only complaint i have had since the beginning was the lack of a focus assist lamp in ver dim situations.. (using the kit lens) ...

my "trauma" was when I attended a wedding, and the reception was really dim (only candles ) and dim lighting.. I tried to focus on the candle and re frame on the people i am taking but 70% of the time the camera would not even LOCK focus...
(had long threads about this lack of focus assist lamp with the E-pL2...)

anyway.. I was window shopping at BEST BUY this afternoon and they had a demo Panasonic GF2,,, and the sales guy said they still had ONE LAST NEW GF-2 and can sell it to me for the same price as the open box one = $350 I bit..

now I am sitting here.. this is a good deal right?

my dim lighting phobia will be solved by this focus assist lamp...and it has better video and stereo than my E-PL2 right?

and I tend to take videos also with family parties..

so do i use this Camera and then sell my barely used E-Pl2?

any input is appreciated.. thanks..

P.S. of course I have read the reviews here-- E-PL2 got a silver award for 71 % grade, and GF2 got no award and 70%

..and read the threads about pe-pl2 vs gf2..
