If the G lenses are made for the M mount, I'd likely sell my G2 set. The G2 
*IS* a very good SP shooter. One's lenses need not be all that fast for SP. 
Like BD, my G1 was is a problem in focusing. When it cannot determine a 
focus point, it just ignores the shutter. So Kyle would be wrong here.....I 
just kept pushing the button and it didn't get unstuck.
