    I love this thing – between an iPhone 3Gs and this guy I will opt for this. Really iconic stuff, and it will last a long life time (maybe till I die).

    Lifetime is subjective. Could be the camera’s lifetime of couple of years before the next upgrade hits. Wink wink.

    I totally agree with Virtualess abt opting for Pen over iPhone. Now I know what I need to save up for.

    I am going go Singapore, if anyone wishes to tumpang, I can try get one for him / her, there will be GST rebate and in Singapore it could be cheaper. Let me know….. I am not buying – no need for the moment.

    Though tempting, but don’t think I want to spend my limited budget on another camera. Thanks for offering. But still curious to know the price difference in Singapore though. If you do happen to pop-by a camera shop – please find out. Thanks. πŸ™‚
