g2 is discontinued i thought.. i wtd a g2 last yr.. but i told myself a better one will be out..
now i am making my buy. but still unsure.. of the camera.. a budget i can come out with but the camera has to suit.
The battery life of the 5700 is an issue, because of the EVF, and focusing in low light conditions is really a problem. There's no AF assist light, and it can't utilize external flash AF-assist, so there's nothing much you can do about it. To make things worse, manual focus SUCKS, because you can't see a thing through the EVF. Upping the ISO will help a bit though, but well... it's one of the reasons why I sold it.
If you do alot of shooting in low light situations, forget it. Get the G3. Otherwise, it's a great camera. Check out my galleries.
