Pretty good price...but be careful with the fluctuation of camera prices, what is a fantastic deal today, could be a pretty poor one in a months time.
G6 prices have shot up (as was pointed out in last deal for one here) and G5 body can be had for under £200 a month ago...don't know current prices now, the lens can be sold for approx £50-£55 or if it's the MKII one then maybe £60-£65.

How does this compare to the g1? Worth upgrading?

Not really, all cameras in the "G" line perform on a similar plane.
You'll need to spend a lot more money to get anything that will show a worthwhile improvement in terms of low light performance, which is the weakness of m43 cameras and G series especially.

This upgrade will be a vast improvement on a G1 - I upgraded from a G2 and noticed a huge difference. Low light performance is now excellent - regularly shoot at 6400 iso with very little graininess. Plus you can use any lenses you already have.

5 years warranty - hot

Yep your right, that's why I had a budget to work from. But no one can predict when to buy or not, so I guess, if u need it buy it if not then don't. That's my motto

I was going to go for the sony 3N, however it proves difficult to hold due to its size and not touch screen I believe, nether the less they all ok. Arrived well packaged and everything new, no damages to box etc.. And the guy at the end of the phone was good, chat to him about some advantages and disadvantages of the mirror-less camera , they seem to know their stuff and not just push sale to u as they are family run business.
