Tullio-

The GF-1 is very nice, but pricey. I one landed under the Christmas tree for me though I would not complain.

Have a great day.

I agree, Sarah. The GF1 is holding up its price very well but we must keep in mind that its a new model and as such, prices won't fluctuate as much. The Oly EP1 w/ the 17mm pancake lens is going for $760. Considering that body only is $650 and the 17mm lens is going for $290, the price for the combo (+ EVF) is very good, specially considering that the EP2 did not add much in terms of features. It's a good alternative to the GF1 if a built-in flash is not a must (which for me it is).

I am like you, Tullio-

I need that built in flash unit to round out my photo needs.

You can find the GF1 in Japan for 62,749 yen (about $720 USD) with the 14-45mm lens.
Or about $10 less with the pancake.(20mm F1.7)

Or the body only for about $580.

dnas- That sounds like a good deal to me. However, when you include the airfare, the tables turn rather radically.
