Do you seriously think the GH3 is anywhere near as big as your 5D? Are you drunk?

Frankly, I don't believe you own a 5D if you think it's "almost the same size as a GH2." The GH2 is significantly smaller than my 50D, which is a fair bit smaller than a 7D (don't own one, but have rented one), which is smaller than a 5D by a good bit. Yes, I've used the 5D and 5D Mk II. A buddy owns both.

sorry can you explain why i must buy a small sensor camera with a body almost big like a FF ?

my 5D MII coupled with 28mm 1.8 , 35mm f2 or 40mm f2.8 has almost same size as my GH2 , anyway i need a bag for carry them (both) and GH3 is also bigger then GH2

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."
