Topic - Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 for Alpine climbing

Big Lee - on 17 Mar 2012
Anybody bought a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3? I often use my camera in an Alpine climbing environment for which the G3 potentially seems ideal given it's minimal bulk and weight. I've previously always used a traditional SLR (last one was an EOS 450D) and am slightly nervous about making the switch to a mirrorless camera.

Compared to, for example, an EOS 600D I'm interested to know how the camera might behave above the snowline, how the viewfinder will function with a circular polariser, and how the battery life will stand up in cold conditions. I'm not bothered about the limited lens selection.

Have played around with cameras in the shops but interested in feedback from anybody who has purchased.

Cheers,
Lee
