    Hi,

    I am the proud owner of a new G3.

    I had an old film SLR (Praktica LTL) which I used between 1974 and 1985. Then I got tired of lugging it about and switched to a basic Canon 35mm point and shoot with two focal lengths.

    In the early 00s I joinded the digital revolution and have owned a few point and shoots, most recently a Fuji 200EXR. I have become disatisfied with my the quality of these pictures and this came to a head when most of the photographs taken during a holiday in Provence were ruined due to a smudge on the lens. Not really the camera's fault but it pushed me into upgrading. I was never convinced that SLR was the way to go and have been following the development of Micro 4/3 with interest.

    Hello I have just arrived myself and will be interested to see how you get on with the G3 as that is the camera I may get.
    Have fun.

    I had a holiday in South Africa with it a couple of weeks ago. This included a day's safari and I took some nice pictures with the 45-200mm lens.

    And very good they are too! I really like SA as there is generally enough light to get a decent shot ... just as we have in the UK right now!
