Re: NikonV1 or Panasonic G3

Hi pgerrish,

I just received a G3, c/w 14 42 and 45 200 lenses. I hav had SLR's in the past and didn't want to go there but had been looking at a A65, especially due to the EVF. I had been looking at an FZ150, my current / last camera having been FZ28 ...

Finally, I plumped for the G3, due to:

  • reasonable price

  • excellent reviews all round

  • I have found the Panasonic menus easy to use and was pleased with the FZ28

  • SLR format, but smaller / lighter

  • EVF significantly better than FZ28/150

So: just out of the box:

  • pretty, small, v well-built

  • very good EVF (but which will "rip" when you move, in low light)

  • fast & reactive

Promise: will be out this w/end (although have to leave Sunday, so don't expect any news soon ...)
