After just 5 weeks, my G7 went into the shop. The front dial stopped clicking, rotating freely. I sent if off to the Texas repair facility, but I've gotten the impression that their communication is poor. I don't expect to be contacted to acknowledge they have the camera or to get an estimate of repair time. Based on more than a few unhappy reports on the web, I figure I'll get the camera back by Halloween. I'm glad I still have the G6.
