Default question about G3 & G5 sales

A sales assistant at a camera shop told me today that they dont stock the G5 canon because it is out of date!!!! I was under the impression that this was a new model and said so, he then said that the technology was out of date and that I could do better than the G3 I recently purchased in November last year (I purchased the Camera from this store which makes it all the more strange). I noticed they were pushing sales of mainly Fugi and Olympus digital Cameras. I also was wondering if he was telling the truth here and that fugi and Olympus have better models that do a better job than these Cameras.

Does anyone have an opinion on this comment?

Probably why he is a "sales assistant" and not the owner or manager :P

The G5 is a fairly "current" model - only abt 7 months old, review is here:


Excellent camera. There are a whole bunch of new Canon cameras that will be on-scene shortly though, see my PMA 2004 Report and scroll down to the Canon listings:

thanks for the reply. I was just wondering what was wrong with owning a G3 or G5. Having been sold the camera by this shop then being told that I could have done better just a few months later, yet all the cameras in stock were mainly point and shoot. Kind of annoying!!! I could understand it if he was talking about the SLR digitals but I like the fact that I have the manual setting on my G3 and I have no complaints with this camera.
