Hi!

Help!  What is the conclusion?  Is the G1 version at least as good as the G2, but just with slower AF?  I just ordered the G2, but it's on back order so I have a chance to cancel and reorder the G1.  I'm getting mine mainly for the distance so that I can shoot choral singing from the back of the room, so I'm not sure that a slower AF would really impact me...and when you guys talk about the AF being slower do you mean just a fraction of a second slower, or seconds slower.What is important is that the pictures be as sharp as they can be esp at 400mm.  Is this better on the G1?

Thanks as always for sharing your experience and knowledge!

Roxanne
