G3 still a recommendation? Or old & tired?

I've been waiting for a while now for the G3 price to get down to something affordable. Its taken its time but I notice I can now pick it up for $380 or so remanufactured from a couple of places.

What do people think these days of the G3? I've been unable to find anything much better which isn't much more expensive. Naturally I'd like all the power and facilities of a DSLR in a package I can slip in my pocket, but the G3 seemed a good compromise at the time. What do people think? Is it still holding its own?

I'm assuming that remanufactured = refurbished. Any horror stories I should watch out for? (CNET's shopper's guide lists two places: Refurb Deport and MPSuperstore).

Any advice or comments most welcome!
