Got a G3 for 5 months. Before that bought SX20, because the EVF was better than HS20. And the G3 EVF is MUCH MUCH better than in SX20, in every way.

Same goes for the image quality, used both cameras at an outdoor event. A superzoom no match for a system camera in any way.
G3 really is fine up to ISO 1600, pleasant colours and good jpegs.
Got rather big hands, the grip ok, but not tried large lenses. G2 grip better.
Some buttons a bit small, not so good with gloves.

Love the tilting screen, can be turned inwards and protected, don't like the Fuji screens in that way.

But now the camera and lens sent for repair, the kit lens often blurry/soft to the right. So I did not manage to get the best out of the camera, but some fine images.

And that only with the weakest lens. Check for pictures with 20 or 25mm from "professionals".
