how about IBIS in OLY vs no IBIS in Panny? …
For image stabilization there seems to be two schools of thought. The ones that favour in-camera claim it is cheaper in the long run. Those that favour in-lens claim that in-camera can't be optimized for all lenses. I suspect either way will work but "ya pays your money and takes your chance"

For me I know how well I can handhold non stabilized lenses and I am never sure how much I can rely on IS ensues so I tend not to use them.

The white G3 is not nearly as sexy as the white GF1, and I think the silver is a huge part of it

A way back in my early days of photography almost all 35 mm DSL were silver. A few photojournalist started putting black tape on their cameras so they would be less of a target in stressful situations Companies like Nikon started making black bodies, for the pros, and likewise started charging a premium for them; hence black bodies were born! Being too cheap I took my then Spotmatic and covered it in black tape and I looked so David Douglas Duncanish, all ready for a war. From that point on I have favoured black cameras and I must admit they have done me well as I have never been shot at while holding a camera.

The white looks cool. Black is classic. This time around, I decided chocolate brown was just the ticket!

Mr Doug... I love the color of this camera. It's fun, different, but doesn't scream out... so it's subtle enough for street photography.

Source, as with most of my gear purchased over the last thirty years or so... B&H.

Your choice of a G3 is a very good one. I love this camera. The G3 is an exceptionally capable camera is all respects and produces superb IQ. With the built-in EVF and the fully articulating LCD screen, you can shoot this pretty much any way you want or need to. Great over the head, at the waist, on the ground. I've shot it at a 90 degree angle, at waist level, doing street photography... helps a bit with not getting "busted". :rofl:

IQ? As good as it gets in the world of m4/3.
