After all the buzz about the GF-1000, I decided to pull the trigger on one for my birthday. I received it today and I'm very happy with my purchase.
My first impression when I picked it up was how heavy it feels in the hand. However, when it's on the wrist, the weight practically disappears because of how well balanced it is.
It definitely has a huge presence on my wrist, and I even thought it was a little too big at first. But after wearing it all day, I've gotten used to the size and I'm totally comfortable wearing it. I don't think I can go any bigger than this, though. I have some of the other oversized G models and this one wears the biggest in my opinion.
Here's a comparison shot for some perspective with the GW-225 on the left, the GF-1000 in the middle, and the GXW-56 on the right.
I'm happy to have this model in my collection and I know it will be getting a lot of wrist time in the future.
