I recently bought a new GF1 w/20mm pancake and am very happy with it. Now I have an opportunity to buy a new G1 (yes, the original m4/3) and in the four reviews I read there is nothing but prize for the cam.

Except that these reviews are three years old and do not include much of the real world experience. Before I buy the G1 I wonder if there is a downside to them.

Okay, this one is red (and that's okay), but if you had some bad or quirky things happen, please post.

... and in some cases, getting accepted!

I'd like the speedier focussing and lower noise with the new G3, but otherwise, I'd recommend it. The 14-45 lens is great (and apparently better than the 14-42) and with your 20mm an excellent camera. - It was the promise of the 20mm that made me go for it in the first place, had to wait 9 months, but I've been v happy.
