Personnaly I prefer primes but my friend, well he likes it all - I know greedy hey!

He tried both the GRD, GXR and also a G3 instore and I thought he would walk out with the GRD, but he said he was surprised how noisy it was at base ISO setting even in bright sunny conditions - something he had never seen on even his old canon G7! He ended up not that impressed with any of them - fussy bugger (excuse my UK slang).

I think he is now eyeing up either the new NEX or even the Pentax Q - the shop owner was raving about it, said he had seen some great output despite the sensor size, personally I'm not convinced.

So, back to the drawing board. From my point, with the announcements todate I'm surprised that both Canon and Nikon have come to the mirrorless party. The segment if not now, has to be hurting their consumer sales.
