HONG KONG

I super love my new camera. Bought it in Broadway in Harbor City. The Lumix GF2 comes with two lenses, although you can actually choose a kit with one lens (cheaper)--but buying the two lens is more bang for the buck. Here are some snaps that are all taken in natural light. Without any editing. Amazing. And heres another cool function, the GF2 is touch screen, so when I want to focus on a particular subject, it targets that and automatically blurs the background. Can somebody say: Sartorialist? heeeh. I wonder why i held off for so long. The only thing that I'm choosy about is the size and the heaviness, coming from my ixus, which nestles comfortably in my already calculated bag weight, the GF2 feels like a rock when stashed inside my tote that already contains an ipad, a workable makeup kit, my phone and a wallet thats forever getting fat with coins. And i complain about back pain at the end of the day. But. Suffer, because I soooooper love it! Originally wanted to get the red one because the earlier model GF1 didn't have it, but B dissuaded me and convinced me that the white was more me. And yes, it actually is.

Did a double take and thought Team Manila was selling in HK already. Eep. No pala.

@Izzy: yes, i concur!

@Reno and Mars: thanks guys and considering it's just point and shoot, with a few little extras. =)

@NTL: i got mine for HK$6990. Which is pretty decent. And Broadway is uniform price all across the board. And it comes with warranty. I got my ipad there too, their price comes out more or less the same as U.S. Pricing, so go for gold!
