I've been lurking for some time but now that I am an owner of a Panasonic G3 I just wanted to get some opinions on the camera. I had been hoping to get a "proper" camera for a while now. Originally I was looking at models such as the Olympus XZ-2, then the Stylus 1 but then read about the importance of a big sensor. I did not want to go to one as big as a dSLR though. I then looked at the LX100, and GM5 but being a recent grad who just moved into my own place I didn't have that much money to spend on a new camera. I needed something a little more friendly to my wallet. It turned out that a friend of a friend was selling much of his gear and said he had some m43 cameras that were lightly used. My 'budget' options from him were a GF1, E-PM2 or G3. The GF1 was my favourite based on its look and feel, but he also told me that it was one of the oldest m43 cameras around. The E-PM2 had a nice portable size, and I had read about how Olympus cameras produced nice colours. The G3 felt good in the hand, and I loved the built in viewfinder, and tilt-able lcd screen. I ended up going with the G3 along with a Panasonic 20mm lens (first generation) for a great price. I have some knowledge of manual settings and so far I have been practicing with shooting at different settings and modes but nothing too serious at the moment. So I just wanted to ask if there are any G3 users here that can give their opinions on the camera, how it stacks up against m4/3 cameras from the current generation etc. Is it a good camera to get started with?
