This is my first SLR "type" camera. I have been working with the Powershot G7 for a long time now, which gave me great photos and still does, but I was looking for something more versatile with choices of lens and more of a professional feel. After I had just purchased the G7 the G9 came out with RAW format and I was really upset, but I do love my G7. So far, I love the T3. The shots are so clear and I love that I can play around more with the focus. I also love that the screen turns and tips at the back for "over the head" shots and "low to the ground" shots. I sometimes am hired to take wedding photos and when a group of people get in a circle on the dance floor and you're only 5'2" it's tough to see what's going on in the middle. I do miss the ease of an Optical zoom on this camera though compared to the G7 and I was disappointed when I found I have to buy a "Class 6" SD card to record video for longer then 1 min. Over all, I am excited to learn more about the use of this camera. I still want to explore the macro mode etc. not sure how the quality will be without the purchase of the macro lens. Have to save up for a future purchase.
