    how does the laser focus work? is it like on a regular digital camera? (i.e. the laser projects a red or green patter on the subject. like on my old Canon and Sony digital cameras)

    thanks!

    It projects a cone of infrared lasers to predict the focal range.

    I can't wait for a good review to go over this. I don't believe the marketing hype until someone can really test it with real world usage.

    what color is it and how large is the pattern?

    this is what the laser focus pattern looks like on my old Sony digital camera: (ugly pattern, but works great)

    INFRARED you can't see them. Same kind of laser in an IR Blaster.

    I assume it will still be visible on the screen, right?

    on my Sony camera, I can take pictures in TOTAL darkness... wonder if the G3 will be able to do that?

    Maybe but since it falls back to contrast focusing on fail. I bet they don't so you can't tell when it fails to work.
