Re: surprising lack of interest in G5 review

I think the G5 suffers a bit because its at the end of a long series of improvements G1->G2->G3->G5.  Canon get the same sort of "ho-hum" when they release the latest Rebel camera.  The camera itself is very capable and refined but because there is nothing radically different from the last model people don't leap at the review ... in the same way they might have done when the original G1 came out - that was radically different from everything that had come before.

I have the G2 and am confident it will be replaced at some point by the G5, G6 or even G7.  I don't fancy the larger GH3 form factor and my "no-evf" GX1 has convinced me I want the EVF built in...
