I've been cruising the web for a week or two now for camera deals and came across this one on Amazon today. It looks like it's valid until Dec 5th.

Usually 800 or so and is 399 bucks!

The lens is worth $250 on ebay. I still wouldn't buy an m4/3s camera without video capabilities though. The now hackable G2 or the upcoming GF2 would be better options for $100-$200 more.

I bought the $399 Lumix G1 on Amazon. I have been using it for three days and I like it very much. I dropped another $258 to get the 45-200mm zoom. I have not used the standard short lens, as yet. They claim that the 200mm is equivalent to a 400mm on a non-4/3s camera.

The unit is light, amazingly short, and very easy to use. I love the clarity of the images so far. The auto functions work beautifully, but I have been using manual for so long I usually keep this one set to manual.

I sound like an ad, but this is just me enjoying my new machine. What experiences have others of you had with the Lumix? I am still gaining a working knowledge of it.
