Panasonic GX1 Rebate and Sale - $449!

For March, we have the Panasonic GX1 on sale! After rebate, you are looking at only $449 for this superb little Micro-4/3 body!

It has a 16 megapixel sensor with high dynamic range and excellent low-light capabilities and will work with all Panasonic and Olympus Micro-4/3 lenses. It boasts all metal construction with lots of external function buttons and mechanical controls, despite the fact that it also has an excellent touch screen LCD as well. This is the perfect enthusiast's camera, compact like a P&S when you want it to be, especially when paired up with the tiny 14mm f/2.5 pancake prime, or add on the optional external EVF (electronic viewfinder) for stable eye-level viewing. Below is a shot of the EVF on the camera with the tiny little 14mm...

The optional tilting external EVF (electronic viewfinder) allows for more traditional SLR-style handling, plus you can also tilt the viewfinder up to make low-angle shots a whole lot easier to do. Note that due to the angle of the above photo, the EVF looks a little larger than it really is. To see how small this camera really is, see below where it is beside the small LX5 point & shoot with its optional EVF. The GX1 is not a whole lot larger!

Lastly, to get a sense of how small the GX1 is compared to a regular DSLR, below is a shot of the GX1 on the left, the larger Panasonic GH2 in the middle, and a Canon EOS-7D on the right. You can see how tiny this high performance Micro-4/3 camera really is! If you want to lighten your load for your next vacation and leave your big DSLR kit behind, but not sacrifice image quality to a P&S, you should consider a little GX1 kit instead!
