GF3: a relatively good value vs...
Jun 9, 2012

the advance compact camera crowd. That's what I see the Panasonic GF3 as, especially brand new at $339 with the very good 14 2.5 lens(eBay). I was looking for a small and inexpensive camera to carry around for casual photography and video shooting. The other options were the advanced compacts; P7100, G12, XZ1 at/around the $400 range.

Without droning on too long about it; I have shot the 14 2.5 on a GH1 and found it to be sharp. Amazingly, the price on that lens has plummeted since it first rolled out, now can be found for under $200. Because I was an early adopter of that lens I paid $325. Now, for only $14 more, I get a little camera body that can do so discrete shooting as well as the advanced compacts.

So, I am back with the m43 users.
