And I'll choose ergos over smaller size any day. Aren't you glad I don't get to specify how all cameras are designed. I'm glad you don't, too.

I am concerned a out weight, but that really has more to do with lenses than the body once you build a serious kit. A GH3 with, say, 4 native lenses will still be much lighter than even a cheap Rebel with 4 matching FOV lenses, and dramatically smaller and lighter than a 7D with the same lenses. And the design and build quality of the GH3 appears much closer to the 7D than to a Rebel.

Better ergonomics?

I'd sacrifice ergonomics for small size and weight any day.

I've stopped thinking in terms of "equivalent" focal lengths on m43. 25mm is what it is, and what it might be similar to on some other format doesn't matter to me any more. We need to learn what to expect from our current equipment, not keep mapping it to the old. No one refers to their 50mm FF lens as "equivalent to 80mm on MF."
