I think the G1 has the best implementation of black and white filters. I can't convert from RAW into anything even close to the Dynamic B&W filter. I wish cameras would have more film emulation filters built-in -- Tri-X, Velvia, Portra, RVP, or whatever your favourite film is.
As I have said before, the kit lens that came with the original G1 is an outstanding lens. Very sharp and the IS is effective. The only downside I can see, other than the slow maximum aperture, is the inherent distortion. If you shoot jpeg, or process the RAW file in Photoshop/Lightroom, the images are automatically distortion corrected. I can't help but feel that there is a cost to the correction. Image quality must be affected.
