May Have Changed My Mind

Just checked craigslist and found a GX1 for $325. May be sending my $400 camera back and saving $75.

I feel like such a slut.

lot of looking a gift horse in the mouth here...

Panasonic isn't selling this; it's Amazon, and it's only another of their amazing deals, and there's 2 hours left.

Yes, there is ALWAYS another camera on the horizon. If anything, this deal may reflect Amazon's own higher inventory of black bodies. Personally, I would have jumped on this deal if the "silver" was at this price.

I haven't seen a quality-camera "deal of the day" for months, btw.

GX1 has it's own EVF

Just like GF1 with its LVF1, GX1 has its own EVF (I think LVF2) which is a massive improvement over LVF1.

Changed my mind and ordered the black one in this last hour! Sweet deal indeed! Tomorrow I start shopping for lenses.

Re: You've got GAS ;)

Hello,

I think you have a very bad case of GAS.

$395 for a GX1 is hard to pass up.

Enjoy your new camera(s).

I need to join a 12 step program for cameras.

Thanks for the heads up. Just ordered the GX1 black body for the killer price of $395. Could not find any options as to body or lenes. Already have two 14-42mm lens. Would like to buy a nicer m43 lens.

If there is a 12 step I'd need to be in line. I purchased an EPL1 earlier this year, then a Nikon D800 and now I want an OMD, but this GX1 is looking pretty good (I'd give the EPL1 to my son). How does the GX1 sensor compare to the OMD?

On second thought I think I'll wait and get the OMD, I sure do like that flip screen for street photography.
