Hello, I'm Doug. After several weeks agonizing over whether to upgrade my Panasonic DMC-FZ7 (FZ150, FZ200, G3, G5 and GX1 were the main prospects), I finally pulled the trigger on a G5. I posted in the deal forum that Adorama has a great deal for the camera, kit lens, and the 45-150mm lens along with a $100 gift certificate for $598. Even though I've had a pretty nice camera for six years, I haven't really taken advantage of it's features. I mostly have shot in Auto mode. But having never been satisfied with much of my indoor pictures, I decided it was time for an upgrade. I've got three kids, ages 1 to 8, so they comprise most of my photos. Otherwise I enjoy taking pictures of most anything from landscapes, to wildlife, to classic cars, museum subjects, etc. If anyone has tips on this camera (I'll probably be sticking to these two lenses, at least for quite a while), I'd appreciate it.
