Hi guys, I have been pondering for a while about upgrading my G3. I like the photos that I get, the speed improvements (both operational and low light) to the G1 that I had, and the GH1 that I have kicking around, but try as I might, I can't get on with the handling. I bonded very well with some of my previous cameras, sometimes taking photos through the sheer joy of use (like the Leica M2, Konica Minolta 7D, Pentax K10 and the rubber covered G1/GH1) but not so much with the G3. I think the lack of the eye sensor, the lack of grip and lack of buttons is making me leave it at home or not take as many photos that I would like. I was trying to decide between the EM5 and the G5 (GH3 is too big and way out of my budget) but having wandered into my local Jessops to have a feel, the EM5 felt a bit sharp in my hand. Despite the free 45mm f1.8 offer in the UK at the moment (I have it already, so if I went for the EM5, the lens would be sold to subsidise the cost) I would likely need to buy the additional grip, which would effectively be paid by the 45mm. £1149 with the 12-50 lens and 2y warranty. The G5 felt really really sweet in the hand, I like the return of the eye sensor, the chunky grip, the second adjustment dial, the electronic shutter. The body would cost me £475 after cashback with 3y warranty. Less than half the body price of the EM5 (with what I feel would be the mandatory grip set) When I got home, I dug out the GH1, and fell in love with the handling again (except for the dial at the front, its easier to push the dial in with the thumb than the index finger in my opinion) and the rubberised finish. Then I played around with it in my fairly dark living room, and realised why I went for the G3 in the first place! All through this, my girlfriend was thinking I was mad, until asked her to try the G3 and then the GH1 with the 14-140mm lens attached. The G5 seems like the best option for me, taking into account: cost, value, ergonomics, but why do I keep on looking at EM5 reviews? Weather resistance and IBIS appeal, but the electronic shutter and my almost pathological need to protect my gadgets and keep them minty fresh should make up for it. Have other people upgraded from the G3 to the G5 or even the EM5 due to handling?
