All I'm asking for is a little perspective. You seem to have a chip on your shoulder about m43 being trashed by APS-C users.

Well, and all this time I thought that the G3 images looked better, but now you say it's really a psychological problem I have? Not even an optical problem, like short-sightedness??

Would you mind double-checking for me and confirming that it is just my imagination that the G3 OOC JPEGs are actually better in many areas than a cross-section of much more expensive, bigger-sensored APS-C cameras?

And you have never seen APS-C zealots claiming that that could never happen? Not even in dpreview?? I thought I had, but along with my psychological problem that must just be...

You realise that I am no longer a ยต4/3 user?

I use a Nikon D700 now but it's just a tool. I have no trouble giving credit where it is due, and the G3 and Panasonic sure deserve it for this set of test images in dpreview.

Why is it so hard for some to acknowledge how good this camera is? It is not the best camera in the world, but it sure is producing better looking images in some very important aspects, than cameras costing twice as much and more, with larger sensors.

It's hard to acknowledge anything based on a few OOC JPEGs. Why it's so hard for you to see that is beyond me. I never said the G3 was a bad camera. I never said that the news thus far was not encouraging; quite the opposite, in fact. All I've said is it's too soon to be spouting praise like "G3 heralds the end of APS-C DSLRs" when presented with a brief overview and a few sample OOC JPEGs. Clearly, you disagree.

Trevor, you're welcome to have whatever opinion you want, as am I. I think all of your superlatives for a camera no one has fully reviewed, and that you've never touched, is premature. Threads like this do nothing but reinforce the "fanboy" opinion some have of m43 zealots. Feel free to continue cherry picking my comments if that makes you feel better about your irrationality, but it doesn't change anything.
