    While I am waiting to the LX5 I am using the G9 from my wife, it is almost new, she is not very found of this hobby, but I think that this was a real nice camera 3 years ago. I really the 28mm or 24mm of my ex-GX200, but I am doing again three shots panoramas with it.

    1 Small fungus
    IMG_0728.

    2 Larun Train
    IMG_0660.

    3 Xoldokogaina
    IMG_0696.

    4 Jaizkibel
    IMG_0707.

    5 Donamaria
    IMG_0711.

    6 Peñas de Aya

    The dynamic range is the worst part of this camera, the last one shot was imposible to handle the extreme light conditions, and I had to do a pano of three shots to cover the mountain

    I hope to recieve the LX5 next month, but with the G9 I think I can do good things, at least with good light

    Oh man am I jealous. It helps to have a nice camera (G9 & GX200) and some skill (which you have). But I'm very jealous of your location (subjects). Guipúzcoa is pretty much my 2nd favorite spot on the planet (Hondarribia specifically).
    The writings and pictures on this site are making me lean heavily towards a LX-5 vs a m4/3.
    Thanks gsaronni.

    Great pictures! One can see that the quality of this camera is very high. My Canon G12 is great, too, so I think that Canon's G-cameras seem to be excellent.

    Super color and the sense of the sun's light is beautiful, too. I like that Larun train very much and would love to ride on it, too!

    Very nice shots! The detail is excellent as is the color. I've never used a G9 but I've owned a G11 and currently own a G12. The HDR setting on the G12 works beautifully and would have handled that last shot perfectly.
