I also still have my G1, and I found that when I tried the G5 in a store it felt a bit too small for me, probably because I am used to the slightly larger body of the G1. The finish on the camera was also different. It is amazing how these superficial things influence our feelings about a camera. Try in hand and see if you like it - if so, its a a great camera.


That's an interesting observation indeed. Good idea - I actually tried to get to see one this afternoon, but the shop unfortunately didn't have one (T4 cameras, the only m4/3 they had was a GF5). With Jessops gone, I've actually no idea where I could go to see one, here around Oxford. Probably London...
