If you have been wanting a better camera that's smaller than DSLR, you may pull the trigger now. G5 takes perfect video that's equal to $$$$ dedicated prosummer video cameras. Its photos are better than entry-level DSLR's. Most of my published video and photos are its job.
According to past experience, $299 is the lowest clearance point for brand new Panasonic kits. So, if this camera fits your needs and you prefer new to used, you should not wait any longer.
