on the other hand, a faster AF is always a welcome addition, no matter what you are shooting,

Yeah, you're right about that.

so G2 is a good alternative too for s little extra, assuming they have the same IQ.

My new G1 was $1600 when I bought it back in early 2010. So 'upgrading' to a G2 would not be a "little" extra $ for me. With IQ the same, and a bit faster AF the only real difference... I can't justify what would probably end up being about $800, assuming I could get about $1400 for my G1.

That said, if I didn't already have the G1, the story would be different. The G1 now goes for $2000 new. And with the G2 at $2200... I would consider that difference a "little extra". So if I didn't have one and was in the market to buy one, I'd probably go for the G2.

Score!  You got your G1 for a good price!  Does Sony routinely raise the price of it's gear like that?
