    LOL talk about over priced!

  2. minimal difference with lx3. If it is being sold at 35K then better get a GF1.

    Currently vacationing in Japan and saw it in that big electronics store in Akihabara (Yodobashi?)… its Y57,000 (roughly P30k). Not sure if you can take 5% off duty free, in which case it would be about P28,500. The catch… no english interface available :(

    Shame on INFOMAXX for excessive mark-up. A small shop in Robinsons, Pioneer will most likely offer the LX5 at the 25k mark. Last time I visited, the have the LX3 for 19.5k and NEX-5 for 34K.
