Cheapest out there by far - found it at a Currys near me.
You pay £379 in store and get £50 back from Panasonic
Cheaper then Canon 1000D and Nikon D3000!!

I bought it at £489 so am really UNHAPPY!!!

Here is the blurb:
Enjoy all the power and versatility of a DSLR camera in one compact body with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 Black Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera + 14-45mm Panasonic Zoom Lens. Experience high quality, professional looking photography without becoming weighed down.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 boasts plenty of advanced technology to assist you in your photography. For example, iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode incorporates Face Detection technology (where the camera detects faces within the frame and automatically optimises exposure and focusing), as well as AF Tracking - which helps you to keep moving subjects in sharp focus.

Utilising Contrast Detection AF, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 lets you choose between the versatility of a 23-point AF area or precise 1-point single area focusing. When it comes to composing your photos, you can either make use of the luxury 3" LCD display, or send the image to the high resolution 1,440,000 dot Live View Finder.

The award-winning Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 also sports a built-in dust reduction scheme, which may save you many laborious hours of cloning in Photoshop!

The lens included with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 has an equivalent (35mm) focal length of 28-90mm, which makes it ideal for shooting anything from a sweeping vista to a high quality close-up portrait. This premium quality LUMIX G VARIO 14-45mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH./MEGA O.I.S. lens also boasts built-in image stabilisation, which helps you to take sharp handheld pictures even in relatively low light.

If you want to move into the world of professional looking photography but retain the usability and portable nature of a compact digital, then the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 Black Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera + 14-45mm Panasonic Zoom Lens is the perfect choice.

Amazon are that price too

Selling those out now because of the new models.

I wouldn't buy one of these purely on the basis that it has an electronic view finder and not an optical one - for how much they cost, entry level DSLR would be a much better bet...

An electronic view finder works well in smaller bodies e.g samsung NX10, but I agree its a bit mixed in this sized body. I did try this camera thought it was quite good but very simialr in size to a full size DSLR.

Nonetheless this is a good price.

Good camera, good find, heat added.

If I am not mistaken, you can also get an extra 5% off all orders at Currys until 20th May with code 5MAY, bringing the effective price down to just £310 (sorry, Bigtone84!).

A good price, yes. However, having had a bridge camera with an EV, I would not recommend people get one as you just don't get the clarity for the fine focussing, which is surely the main point of getting a camera like this? DSLRs are bigger, I grant you, but not prohibitively so...

this is a dslr (a micro 4/3rd one) with a very good evf.

The EVF is ok, but no match for the real deal... It might be classed as a DSLR, but for me, such a camera is one that what you see through the VF is what you get in the photo, which this camera cannot claim to achieve. Just my opinion... Oh, and I have used one of these, before anyone says!
#9
Re the EVF, I must disagree with you. You see exactly what the photo will look like including the exposure level - that's the main benefit of it. The issue is that it is hard to follow fast-moving action on an EVF - particularly when taking shots as each shot is displayed on the EVF for review.
