Many thanks. I certainly will.

I guess another issue with a slow lens is how good the camera is at higher ISO. I tend to stay down at 200 or below and haven't really tested the G1.

Were the G1's successors notably better at higher ISO?

None of the Panasonic sensor are good at high ISOs. The G3 wasn't better than the G1 it only had more resolution. The G5 has the better GH2 sensor, meaning less noise at lower ISOs, but not really at higher ISOs (if I remember correctly). The best sensors are found in the new Olympus cameras : the E-M5 and theE-Pl5 and E-Pm2, recently announced the last two are not yet shipping in all countries. These three models share the same Sony sensor and mark a real progress, both in dynamical range and higher ISOs. It is a break through for mft cameras.
