Need some 4/3 advice PLEASE

Should I buy the Panasonic GX-1??


PLEASE HELP.

I do not have time to research cameras.  I am looking for camera to take snapshots of my toddler.  I would like to shoot RAW+ JPEG but for the most part will be using the JPEGs only and mostly with no or only minor adjustments.  I have Canon P&S (ELPH110HS) which I researched quite a bit and HATE (ok in good light but pics and AF lousy in low light).  I have a DSLR with lots of glass but it is too much and inconvenient for everyday use.

Requirements:

Reasonably inexpensive, IQ & low light ability are more important than megapixels, Good sharp overall photos, quick AF, quick AF in low light, good low light JPEGs

I know the GX-1 is about to be disc'd (which is why the price is so attractive) to make way for a GX-2 which may have better specs but it will cost much more than i am willing to spend on this camera and the specs on the current GX-1 I'm sure are better than my P&S.
