A friend of mine has a grey market G along with all the lenses. He's had them for close to 7 years with no trouble at all. He shoots about 10 rolls a week. So his gear isn't just for flash. It's well used. Matter of fact.............he went out drinking one night with his G2 and 28 and dropped the camera down a flight of stairs. He was pissed taht he put some minor dents and scratches on th body. But the camera still performs as the day it was made.
