If you are going to 'throw one away' can you throw it in my direction? Seriously though i have been looking at some images from the G3 and they look like they were taken from a proper DSLR so I'm excited to see what my baby can do. I have also seen test shots from the new GF-3 and they look pretty awesome as well. The test shots from the Fuji F550 look pretty poor at the moment but i have not had a chance to see what this camera can do yet as i need to take it out for the day. I may take it on holiday as well as the XZ-1 but not sure yet.Mine just arrived too Going to compare it to my X100 and throw one away.
I wonder if anyone will find such a comparison "unfair"... I personally don't have a problem with it - they're both cameras, and that's an end of it as far as justification goes
Yeah I've already gotten used to the size It's a very very nice camera. White balance could be a bit more accurate, but apart from that it whoops my X100 in every way, especially usability!Enjoy the G3
I bought mine last week and although it felt a bit too small to start with you soon get used to it.
The three great things are fast focus , noiseless ISO 800 and high resolution making the body ideal for the 100/300 and 45/200 lenses. In fact I've never seen the 200 lens produce such sharp clear images and even the vignetting is taken care of now by in-camera processing.
Shame that the RAW files aren't recognised by Adobe yet but that will come.
I was looking at getting the E-P3 but what swung it for me was the brilliant EVF and the rear moving screen both of which the E-P3 does not have. I'm VERY happy with the G3.I have been looking at pics people have taken with both the G3 and E P3, and it seems like the G3 is producing sharper and better looking pics. Is it just my bad eyes or does someone agree with me. This is really making me re-evaluate which route I want to go.
Nope! but then I have not been looking. It's certainly not something I have noticed. I shoot in RAW 99% of the time so it shouldn't be an issue. If it remains a problem then I'm sure Panasonic will fix this in a future firmware update.Some people are complaining about a red cast in jpeg mode, have you experienced this?
