I bought my first Canon last month, a G12. Great, little camera, feels robust, does everything I ask of it.
I've always had SLR's, DSLR's, Rangefinder 35mm and Medium Formats before.
Pentax, Mamiya, Leica are my other brands.
The above equipment has been durable.
So far, touch wood, haven't had much in the way of difficulty in 40 odd years of photography. BTW, I'm not a pro, just an enthusiastic amateur, who nonetheless, particularly now that I'm retired, give my digital cameras a daily workout.
I'm assuming the Canon G series is a durable unit, Canon having an excellent reputation and the G series being their premium, small camera.
Wondering what other's experience is...lifetime expectations of the G series, from the first G ...up to the newest in the pack, the G12 ?
Any problems with them ?
