GX20 is very good camera, and advantage of 1.03 firmware on K20D is now gone. :-)
And you could use any lens lik eon K20D, and even same battery grip (this requires some file work :-) )

The K20D costs more than the GX-20 at the moment? I looked on Amazon and it shows that the GX-20 is slightly more expensive than the K20D but only by like 10-20 dollars. Unless Amazon is messed up on the prices. And congratulations on the new purchase by the way, I wish I had a GX-20/K20D.

In many countries GX20 can be found much cheaper. Just because Samsung distribution channels are much better.

Congratulations to your new camera!

Where I bought mine I would have needed to fork out another 120 Euros for the K20D. So it can indeed be a lot more bang for the buck.

they did last time I was there. But that was August (the 23rd to be exact) They still had couple of them in stock back then. By now... Hard to say, on dixons.co.uk they don't show GX20 anymore but you may get lucky. I'd try to call them if there is such possibility

Thx. It's a toss up if I can get this still, otherwise the K-7 is rapidly heading under $1000 so I'll be just as happy with that.
