...a week ago (after a 3 day wait from order to delivery) and have been really busy with it! I chucked my P&S and have been carrying it around since. I'd been procrastinating the purchase for the longest time after having read all the reviews and feedback from here and elsewhere. I scoured the internet, asked friends and family and last week at the last line of defense fell and i picked it up online for USD500 with 14-42 kit lens. It is my first foray into this area of photography having at most gone for P&S and superzooms (crappy KM Z6). Here in Malaysia, it is certainly a challenge looking for a store that stocked it so that i could get a feel of it. It took one month of searching and about 20 store before i finally found one that actually had one on display! It was instant love at first click... the grip felt as though it was molded for my hands, the smoothness of... *AHEM* Anyways, I got it and have been taking lots of photos of my kids running about. I just tested it for a school stage performance with the kit lens last night and i must say i was impressed in the output. I will post up the photos later but it's great! BTW, i gotta thank all the G2 users here (although i didn't consult anyone directly). Your input here has been MOST helpful to my purchase and using the overwhelming logic and reasons in convincing my Home Minister for approval! We gotta start a sticky thread with "101 reasons to buy a G2!" Anyone?
