What is Panasonic trying to achieve? Trying to turn a m43 cam into a fat DSLR?

The only to buy m43s is the small size and weight. It could be a fatal move to sacrifice the only USP!

If you scale the 58mm lens cap on the picture of the GH3 and compare with the body you will find that the width is about 5" wide and 3.5" tall and probably 0.1" less depth as the EVF is recessed more so only slightly wider than GH2. Since it is all magnesium body rather than plastic over metal frame it will weigh a little more but only marginally.
