Got the G1 three years ago when I totally embraced what Panasonic hath wrought with its innovative approach to picture taking in the digital age. Small, high quality bodies that won't give you a hernia, small, quality optics (with the option of accessing even more quality optics, albeit manually focusing, via adapters), an incredible EVF that's big, bright and informative and the articulating LCD that has proven it's usefulness more times than I can count.
As a result I've come to really love the G1 and now look forward (after careful deliberation that opened up the possibility of getting a Nikon D7000) to getting the GH2.
I've taken my little G1 to the ends of the earth often through some tough terrain (which made me really appreciate its lightness and compactness all the more).
Just curious, does anyone here think these incredible Lumix cameras could withstand the rigors of weddings, full time portraiture and other rigorous usage? My thinking is that for the price of some bigger hulking camera with a shutter that's been tested to 100K-150K cycles, I could buy TWO of these.
