I see it as an upgrade, the G7 lacked certain features that were G-series trademarks.

...as does the G9: no tilt/flip/twist LCD...

But RAW is back, that's nice

Kindest regards!

Not all G's had the flip out screens, did they? I thought that was a 5 and 6 thing? I might be wrong, though.

Whether it has the flip screen or not, I'm glad they added raw back. I can't believe they took it out in the first place.

Sorry to say: you are wrong. They all did have 'em, all of them: Pro70, Pro90IS, G1, G2, G3, G5, G6, Pro1, all except G7 and now G9, incredible move...

They are countering the flip-out feature by using LCD screens that have a much larger viewing angle. Not the same for sure, but better than nothing.

And to me, all of these new releases are really upgrades....so are new cars.

Is 8 an unlucky number perhaps? Or am I 0-2 in this thread?
