    Just bought a Canon G11

    tired of carrying a bagful of equip with me all the time. so sold my dslr (400d + 2 lens) and bag and everything and bought a G11. also kept my cokin filters. snapped a 'clone' extension tube to be able to mount 58mm filters on it (from hong kong for 5 pounds).

    absolutely loving it!

    Hi Radu,

    Surprised you would give up all your equipment and not just keep the DSLR with one zoom lens.

    one large-range zoom would be nice but from what i understand it tends to give huge abberations.

    compact is cooler and lighter

    For what it's worth, my Nikon DSLR's 18-200mm has far less abberations (particularly CA) than the same range zoom on my Fuji bridge camera, although that wasn't often a huge problem. I can't speak for the G11, it may well be fine in this respect.

    Regardless, I wish you good luck with it, the photographer's skill has far more effect on what's produced thaan the camera.

    Cheers,

    From what I have seen that G11 is an amazing piece of equipment, somewhere on the web (I wished I saved the link) someone had done a side by side comparison (same shots shot from a tripod on various subjects) with the G11 and a digital Hasselblad, the results were nothing but amazing. Sure the large format did have some advantages but the G11 shots looked so very close and you would have thought the G11 shots were taken with a high end SLR. Anyway, I think that is the same route I'm going as I really can't afford an SLR kit at the moment so .......

    I just bought some compost. I think you got the better deal...

    Let's see the shots then...

    I got a G11 to go alongside my 400D. I love mine too.

    Shooting in raw I find it a bit hard to avoid harsh steps around near-burn-out highlights and quarter tones, but that's the only IQ quirk I've noticed so far (after ~7 months).

    An Iphone would have been a better upgrade. Shocking you missed it!
