Hi

I am thinking of buying the Canon Powershot G3, but I still have
doubts.

Is it correct, that the G3 has big problems with Autofocus in dim
lightconditions? I have read that in a few reviews.

Perhaps I should buy the Olympus C-5050 zoom instead?

Please forgive my bad English. I am a Dane, and I don't write in
English that often .

Hi

I was also deciding between 5050 and G3. For me was important image quality - chromatic aberration, optical distortion and bright lens. 5050 is not better then G3. (I excluded Nicon because bright).

My friends also confirm horrible chromatic aberration in Olympus cameras. You can check this: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/C44/C44FARWTW.HTM
Now I have G3 and I'm happy with it. My friends change Olympus for Sony717.
