    I have been putting off not buying G3 because of no IBIS.. but I keep thinking I need to try one of those.. I have seen many awesome reviews.. I say to myself.. I'm not buying that G3.. it's to Big and not for me.. I think it is brand name..(Lenses are great) and resale as well that is holding me off.. but it has every feature on one camera I like except IBIS.. If I buy one and I don't like how hard would it be and how much of a hit would I take if I sell it in a couple of months?
    :rofl:

    Bill (really)
    If you're thinking of what you could get for it in a couple of months, then I don't think you're ready to buy. Your EP3 should do just fine until you've made up your mind.

    MrDoug, in your situation I would likely buy a used G3. That way someone else has taken the initial "it's not new" hit. I've seen a few for sale pretty close to retail pricing, but one did sell on FredMiranda recently for < $500. Bargains can be found.
     
  5. Less camera buying, more picture taking, thanks!

    You need to concentrate on glass not bodies, they hold their value better, and make you go out and shoot...
