Samy's camera went with others on the sub-$600 deal for a new G7 with 14-42 lens. By doing so it forced a still lower price for their demo model (in silver) with ~280 shutter count. Well below, like $470ish! This was lower than buying a new one elsewhere with $100 credit, so this was hard to overlook.. so I didn't. Yes those deals included bundles with additional lenses, but not lenses I was seeking. I could settle for a 25/1.7 .. but I didn't.
They also threw in $10 speed shipping, not free but quite good for a 'used' item. Thanks folks!
For the future I'll seek a spare battery and that 7.5mm f/3.5 fisheye*. First things first though: I have thirty days to be certain this is a camera I can enjoy and make use of for my kind of shots, both old-school and newfangled 4k types. Should be fun, and a joy to carry such little weight.
* another thought is the 12-32mm retractable zoom; that lens gets very high marks for its image quality and silly-small size. Even if I stop at 24mm or so it might be worth having!
