Pixels are like beans, it doesn't matter how many you put in the pot, it's how well you can cook that counts.

Nice camera, I know back in the day many wedding shooters had a 124G as a backup for their Blad's and a fair few used it as a primary camera.

 

I never owned one but have shot with them several times - I had a C330F as I wanted the lens choice and the Uni I was studying Photography at had a store room full of them that I could borrow.

 

Looking down onto a square screen is very different to looking though a viewfinder and changes the way you (well I) make compositional changes. I found it very much like looking at an actual photograph and I could gauge the way elements interacted with each other in a more realistic way than I ever have been able to do with a conventional viewfinder. Its almost certainly where I got my love affair for a 1:1 shot and I feel it is where I learned to build an image. It could also be why I enjoy using the iPhone and apps like Instagram.
