    Hello from Yorkshire, UK. My name is Paul.

    Have been watching this forum for a few weeks, but thought I would sign up now after taking the plunge and buying a Panasonic G3.

    I chose this because;

    1) coming from 35mm SLR I am addicted to my viewfinder, and

    2) having decided to slim down from the bulk of the SLR I found my hands looked too large & lumpy on the Olympus cameras and the rangefinder Pannies. Perhaps I would have got used to it but I really liked the feel of the G3.

    Limited opportunities up to now, but so far I'm enjoying it a good deal. If I can kick my teenage kids off the PC for long enough I will post some images (this post is from work, don't tell!)

    Managed to get a bit of computer time. Dodgy PP, but here goes; be honest!
