Not really, do not expect anything by the end of the month. They will be announcing new items. But it normally will a months or 2 to get into the supply chain. And the ep3 will not drop down to the price of the epl2 anytime soon to the 350 dollar range with a lens. I would wait till the end of the month to see what the epl 2 and the gf3 drop down to.

By the way I noticed the e-P2 doesn't have a built-in flash, I forgot to mention I don't want to carry anything else other than the camera it self. So I would like a built in flash.

I'll try to find a store that has the Lumix GF3 on display and then make a decision. After using the Sony it's back on my list.

If a built-in flash is a critical part of your decision making then the GF3 and E-PL2 would be the logical options in the micro four thirds camera group.

Here is a llnk to Adorama that has a new E-PL2 available @$349

I've not found a GF3 available, new at this price point


I'm not personally familiar with Sony's offerings so can't comment.

Good luck in whatever direction you take.

zig-123, just wanted to thank you for letting me know about photokina. I went through some of the press releases and decided I will wait a few weeks until the Canon G15 and the Nikon P7700 come out in October. If they will justify spending more than I planned ($500) than I might buy one of those.
I was also considering the Panasonic LX7 but crossed it out due to reviews from people on Amazon... Saying the LX5 and LX3 had better looking pictures.

If I decide to stay in the $350 range I'll go with the Sony HX20V.
