Pros: good battery life, Good Low-Light Performance, Nice features/settings, excellent image quality, durable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use, great manual mode, great battery life
Cons: a little bulky
Bought a G3 about 5 years ago when the G4 was just released. Only 1 repair under extended warranty. A little bulky by todays standards but the lens is great and lets in a lot of light. Pixels are not everything. I have enlarged to 8x10 with good results. When I could not get good close ups with the Canon A560 (still a good camera), additonal features on the G3 in manual mode did the trick. Canon makes some of the best if not the best lenses for consumer and professional products.
