Does the GX1 get much love?

Looking to upgrade from my EPL1 ..and have about made my mind up for the EP3 w/14-42 kit lens. It can be bought refurbished for 599.00 (619 in silver) @ Cameta.

A new EP3 w/14-42 can be had for 949.00 - 150.00 rebate = 799.00

The EP3 (refurb) fits my budget, but I still want the OMD ...

So then up pops the Panny GX1 ...NEW ...with the better sensor; no low light focusing issues and the kit 14-42 lens (not the power zoom) for 699.00.

So why is this camera not getting much love? It looks to have about all that the EP3 has, except for in body IS + many of the better qualities of the OMD. What am I missing?

Not sure about that lens, but I did read that it was as good or better than Oly's kit lens (12-42 Mk II R)
