Customer Review

I switched from the Eos 40 D on the G3 and have regretted it for a minute.

The one with the stars is always a bit tricky - I compare with another camera, I am referring only to the evaluated product?

I also find in some reviews comparing apples with pears.
Clear the G3 can not keep up with a Top SLR ... and the professional they will not use.
But the camera is definitely faster than a D40 or EOS 600 and the images are just a notch above. I have tested my EOS 40D and the G3 Alike with the same motives and the G3 makes better photos.
Have the images 2 friends showed neutral to compare and both have confirmed my impression.
The 3G photos are sharper and the details significantly more precise.
If you can operate the camera, it makes up ISO 3600 good pictures. The point at which one does not get further without a tripod is almost identical to the D40.
The key point for me-each has since certain other priorities - is the weight. If you're actively traveling long distances travels, the kilo Klotz SLR is simply unacceptable. The G3 falls since virtually no on - if you replaced the too narrow strap through better.

The Kritkpunkte in terms of usable lenses I can not quite understand.
Zuiko, Olympus and Sigma now also offer excellent lenses for the G3 (possibly with adapter ring) up to 5,500.
And the kit lenses are in both camera - not bad - but only second-rate.

The decisive factor in the selection of the camera is basically yet but the personal priority list.
ME is the first Wal G3 for the ambitious amateur and they can keep up with the newcomers SLRs full.

I have the camera now a month and see the following criticisms:

Battery life - I'll go with the standard battery to 12h average usage time and have bought a NoName Battery with 850 mA, which holds out again about 9 h. So for safety, always start the day with 2 charged batteries.

Strap - the supplied is much too narrow and hardly padded. If you're on vacation walking around with a collarless T-shirt, for example, begins to be uncomfortable's after an hour at.

I also find the manual is not so abysmal. I packed my Pdf's on IPad and Smartphone's and use the latter variant especially traveling.
