Still lingering about the GF2, but I won't be upset if they sell out. There is always something else, or continue hunting for a GF1. The only appeal to the GF2 at this point is for the 14mm lens. I know its not a 20mm, but better than the 14-42 or 14-45 IMO.
The GF2 with the 14mm is small enough to fit in a pocket, more so than the GF1 (depends on your pockets though :-) )
If pocketability is not too high on the list then the 14-45 is considered to be better than the 14-42.
We are now in the realms of G.A.S (gear aquisition syndrome) which we all suffer from at some stage.
So! to feed your G.A.S I would suggest that whether you get the GF1, 2 or 3 that you get all three lenses 14, 20 and 14-45 (if you can find one) then you have most bases covered.
Once your wallet has recovered, you can then start to think about something longer, 45-200, 100-300, 14-140, 75-300.
Then there are lots of new primes, Macro, the new 12-50 and we haven't even covered proper wide angle yet........
Will someone please stop me, my wallet is starting to scream at me "spend" "spend" "spend"
