I picked up a lovely G2 from another board member after a number of other attempts at picking a G series camera fell flat. It arrived and is in wonderful shape (kudos to Barefoot Pilgrim for keeping the gear spotless). I popped a Sigma 30 on it and I have a few observations. The Sigma 30 is a nice lens. I like the close focus ability of a little more than a foot and it focuses very quickly. The focus locks immediately and thus far it has been very reliable. The handling is superb (just like I remembered) and the camera falls comfortably in the hand. Because of the time it took me to find a G2 I had picked up a Fuji X10 and it has really become my leave it in my backpack take anywhere camera. I am finding a far better go-to camera for a variety of reasons such as built-in macro, zoom lens and images that are quite good. I would even go so far as to say that the IQ is on par with first generation m43 cameras. Still, the G2 offers me an articulated LCD and that will be very useful in getting odd angle shots. Also, the mini-DSLR styled body will be a stable platform for a couple of my longer telephotos (Hex 200 and Vivitar 70-210) where I think the m43 sensor affords it some advantages for what I want it for (bird images). Overall a lovely little camera and still quite capable despite not being the latest and greatest.
