Default Thinking of buying G3?

Reasons why not to buy G3:
1. Lense barrel blocks viewfinder partially.
2. Macro performance not impressive.
3. Focusing mechanism is extremely noisy.
4. Control dial not responsive when rotating quickly.
5. Auto focusing does not work well in low light.
6. Zoom window for manual focusing insufficient for fine tuning the sharpness of subject.
7. Software cannot be installed on Windows NT4.0
8. 4 million pixels only
9. Lense cap keep falling off.
10. No editing software for video clips for G3 but it is available with IXUS!
11. Neck strap gets in the way of the dials.
12. Top LCD display turns dark/black after a few firing of flash.
13. Customer support of canon is slow to or do not respond to inquiries (I am still waiting for responses to mine!)
