Re: can you recommend my first micro four thirds?

i replaced my GF1 with a G3 recently, and i love it madly. it's fast, has nice quality pics in low light and at high ISO, and i find it very comfy. it has less external controls than some other m4/3 cameras, but it happens to have all my favorites at my fingertips, so i'm quite happy with it.

i don't know what you plan to shoot, or what controls you like to use, but if you don't mind a camera that's smaller than the fz150 with a smaller grip, the G3 rocks! i find the EVF much better than the fz150, btw.

a couple things: some people are annoyed that the G3 won't switch from screen to EVF when you put it to your face or switch back - you have to push a button. doesn't bother me at all, but drives some people nuts. and some users do find the camera is small for them. i find it very comfortable, took me about a day to get used to it, but everyone's different.
