well its clear you are enjoying the g9 personally i like your full frame images theres just something about nikon and pentax i like

Thanks Brent, I do love the G9 and I have become a Lumix Fanboy.
To me the main killer features of the camera are dual body stabilisation and the ability to use long telephotos in small lenses.
However I do agree with your comments. Shooting full frame gives the image a better perspective (noticed I didn’t say less depth of field) and having a much larger sensor provides greater depth of colour. Personally i do prefer my photostudies done with my full frame cameras . The images have a certain “Je ne sai quoi”
that can’t be achieved with the micro 4/3rd format.
However I am not prepared to take the size and weight of a full frame system wherever I go but I can take the 4/3rd system. And if something special does turn up the camera is capable of getting reasonable shots as you can see on the website. The cell phone or 1 inch sensor cameras are not good enough.Its all about control.
