I am a proud owner of a G2 and I believe it is an excellent camera for what it can do and its limitations. Owners of this camera will be looking to upgrade to a new model like the G5 which I believe is a worthy upgrade in many ways, too numerous to mention here. My point is that G2 owners should wait a while before the upgrade, the reason being Panasonic allows their cameras' prices to drop after their release. The waiting period varies, say from 6 to 12mths. The evidence lies in 2 models, G2 and now GX1(that I know of), their prices to plummet after their release by more than at 25%. I would not be surprise that I can snap one up for less than $500 within 6 or more months from now. I am waiting and I can still use my other cameras first for taking images in low light, eg. NEX3.
