If I get the g3 I get the kit lens. If I get a "lower" body, or older one, I get a better lens, maybe the panasonic 1.7 or something else. I am using it for family, portraits, general photography. If this were a DSLR I would opt for the latter, the lower body better lens, but with the :43: I'm not sure because the technology seems to change so quick with the body. Thanks for input.
