Any experiance with both the GX1 and GF3 as to pocketability
In reply to stevenjames, May 7, 2012

Most comments I've read in different places discusses the GF3 in terms of it being much smaller than the GX1, but if you look at the actual specs and the web sites that compare sizes it doesn't "seem" all that much smaller. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get to a camera store that has the GX1 on display. There are no more local camera stores around here that carry cameras like this. Fortunately we live near Chicago so if I can get downtown sometime I could compare.

But until then I'd like to hear some comments from anyone who's handled both about the practical differences in size and if the GF3 is truly more pocketable.

I'm considering a move up to M43 this year from my P&S. The GF3 (or GF5) would probably fit my needs although there are a few features of the Gx1 that might make it worthwhile for me unless the GF3/5 was truly a lot more pocketable.
