Summary: I purchase mine in amazon warehouse for 200 dollars. I like this camera, it is light and fairly small and focus fast, deliver very good image quality, has a good amount of configurations and options but it has only a drawback for me and it is that you only can turn off the screen when you plug the external, uncomfortable and expensive view finder. Tuch screen is not that great in this camera but that is not a big deal for me.
Summary: I really miss the swiveling back (which my G3 has). I didn't realize it didn't have this until I had the camera! But I otherwise love the LCD viewfinder! I have resolved never to quint into a peep-hole again, and this camera doesn't waste space on one.
Summary: After reading a great many reviews and repeated reality checks on the amount of money I can actually afford to spend on a camera, I decided on the GX1. I have not been disappointed. I was nervous making the switch from an APS-C sized sensor to a m4/3, theoretically providing less depth-of-field and less spectacular low-light performance, but have not had any problems in the real world.
Excerpt: Love this cam, size, quality performance. I have the old 14-45mm zoom, the 20mm f1.7 and the Sigma 30mm f2.8 and the EVF. This set-up works well for me. The only thing I regret from my old EP-1 is the in-body stabilization.
Excerpt: Before it was the G1 (still in my possession) then the Oly e-p1 (sold) the GF1 (sold) and now ths GX1. I have the Pany lenses 14-45, 45-200, 20mm, 14mm and the Sigma 30mm f2.8. The best combination is the GX1 with the Pany 20mm and the Sigma 30mm.
Summary: I've used this camera almost daily over a month and I can tell with iA override button it's the easiest camera to use! IF you kind of street, flower, close-up subjects photographer this camera is built for that, Macro shots works great as well... video quality is Superb! with a hack available you can push video recording Bitrate to GH2 level and higher... now Cons...
