Yes, I've heard that G3 is really nice. The only nice thing about older models is sometimes you can find a great deal on them if you shop around.

This is a real upgrade over my FZ40. If you're not into telephoto (wildlife, etc.) the G3 is a nice upgrade also, and it's very portable. I would not consider the other Gx models as they produce much more noise than the G3, which is the best four-thirds camera ihmo.

EDIT: Wow! Nice shots Saly!
I went that route years ago; top of the line Canon with all the expensive lens.

I'm more interested in the "G" series, because of portibility; and simply because I'm so impressed with my FZ40. I'm very much into wildlife; but as Saly said, that's also possible with the G3

Also, I'm on SS, so price is very important.

"The only nice thing about older models is sometimes you can find a great deal on them if you shop around."

So very true, Saly!
