I have worked with G7 and G9 before and wanted to buy G9 for myself when I heard of this new one, G10.
The metal body of the camera makes it powerful enough to bring to the nature. We all know what happens for cameras while in a program!
The quality and services that this camera supports is far more than an amateur might need and probably enogh for most of the experts.
I haven't been working with it for moer than two months now but by now I am happy of deciding to buy this!

My Own Experience
The ISO3200 feature is really great.
The metal whole block ir great. The camera fell on the ground(lens inside) and there is not even a scratch on it.
