After getting some feedback here in the forums, and researching a bit more, I have decided to go with a Panasonic for my first jump into micro 4/3. I think having a viewfinder will make a big difference for me, so I've been leaning towards the G5. I also like the size and look of it. But after reading some of the comments here, and a few other things online, I am trying to decide if I should go with a G3 to start. Some of the differences I can see are the the resolution of the LCD, which I don't see as a huge issue since I'll use the viewfinder most of the time, and the video quality, which isn't my primary concern for the camera. The two things I do question are the differences between the sensor/processor , and the difference in ISO, with the G5 going to 12800 and the G3 only going to 6400. I'm wondering if these two things play a big enough role that I'd be better off going with the G5, or if the differences are minimal enough that I should go with the G3. The best price I can find the G5 for is $500 with the 14-42mm lens, or $600 with the 14-42mm and the 45-150mm. I found the G3 on B&H with the 14-42mm for $350. With the difference in price, and if there won't be a huge difference in bodies, I'm thinking I might be better off with the G3 and an additional lens for about the same price as the G5. I would greatly appreciate any thoughts, opinions, or experience on this debate so I can make a decision and finally pull the trigger on a purchase. Thank you very much.
