Default Canon G5!!!

Amazon.com has a canon G5 advertised for $799...doesn't give much info other than shipping weight (5 lbs) and I think it's 5mp. I've heard some say that it will ship June 6-ish.

From another Forum:

"Upon closer review of the e-mail Amazon sent me confirming my order, I noticed the dates they gave me are in 2004!!! I e-mailed them and asked them to give me a more realistic date."

Seems Apple has forbidden Canon from using "G4."

But does it really matter? It's only a G3 with 5mp. Beats me what all the fuss is about.

G5=5mp
G3=4mp doesn't make any sense anyway :lol:

THe G3 Macs were around before the G3 camera was

yeah, it's quite stupid, are they afraid people are going to confuse a computer with a camera?

anyway, all the g5 is is a 5 mp g3, so far from what i have read and heard, they have done nothing to fix the problems that the g3 had, like the fact that the lens barrel blocks a portion of the viewfinder, and the close ups i believe are still inadequate...

probably not a g4 becuase the #4 is bad luck in some asian countries. that or/and they wanted to have the number represent the number of MP..?

I'll stay with my G3. As you can read from G5's review in the site listed below, "four megapixel digital camera owners should wait for the next big leap (seven / eight megapixels)". I'll do it, got no other choice...
