    theres quite some users complaining bout g3 as theres some problems regarding to it. So the more favoured ones are still g2 instead of g3.

    my personal experience...

    1. virgin cam, FM2. my uncle's full manual SLR...
    film too ex not enough to play.. ~10 rolls

    2. coolpix 990. AF slow, not exciting esp zoom. 4k+ pics in 4 mths... $2k+ with accs

    3. oly 2100. 2 mp, 10x zoom, most fun cam.. 1-2k shots in 1.5 years... can shoot all sorts of rubbish... $2k+ w accs

    4. SLR eos 50. AF fast, many things to buy... fking heavy
    10+ rolls... nice really nice when using ext flash and good film...
    $2k and still growing fast

    my personal experience:

    1. Nikon F80

    2. sony P2 - 2 mega-pixel compact camera. no manual functions. Small & light enough to fit in my handbag

    3. G2- recently bought at Sitex - chose it over the G3 because of the problems some users complain about and prefer the feel of the G2 as the G3 felt kinda cheap in my hands. Paid $1130 (inclusive of GST & a 256 compact flash card).

    I still prefer using my film slr but wanted the G2 where i can practice with the manual functions. The reason for getting it is to avoid paying excessive developing costs as i am still on the lower end of the learning curve and don't want to take up physical space for film storage.

    do you want to print the pics? if you want to print big, get a higher MP camera (at least a good 3MP like Fujifilm S602 or a 4MP one like G2). Monitor resolution is not sufficient to produce high quality prints.
