Ok thanks so much Rich and Flying, think I am going to forget the flash for now, figure on those rare occasions when I need the flash, my Vivitar 285 will work just fine. Figure it has better control anyway and I don't have to pay anything for it!

Rich thanks for the link re TTL, my head is sure spinning, I use flash so little that I barly get how it works to begin with.

Hope to have a new (to me) G2 in hand soon....this was the last of my research
