I see G3 has a big price drop already !

I see the G3 has already dropped in price over a £100 in the UK since its launch only a couple of months ago.

I am - and I am not surprised by this.

I am surprised the large drop was so soon, but wouldn't be surprised if it was due to poor sales from the 'expected' market.

I was waiting for this camera - to upgrade from my G1. But just could not come to terms with a camera that is far to small for many to hold comfortably.

I realise that by reducing its size and controls the manufacturing costs are far less. But it is difficult enough holding even the G1 with medium and large lenses, - and I have had to modify it quite a lot to prevent me hitting buttons and controls accidentaly as it is.

So I do hope the forthcoming GH3, or 'pro' is built for people with 'normal' size hands and fingers!

+ PLEASE give us more dynamic range. Highlight 'blowout' is far to common a problem, even when -EV comp is used heavily !
