The GH3 is surely bigger than anything in m4/3 until now. I think it can't be called "micro" again, as it has a size of an entry level or mid level DSLR.

You are seriously misinformed if you think this is as big as "mid level DSLR." Have you ever actually held a 7D or D7000? They're huge by comparison to a GH2, whereas the GH3 is a bit bigger than a GH2.

Even compared to a Rebel, the camera will be considerably thinner due to the lack of a mirror box, and the lenses are much, much smaller, too.

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."
