Fully agree. MFT-concept is flexibility, not size
In reply to tgutgu, Sep 24, 2012

To reduce m4/3 to only small and ultralight devices destroys the variability we have and need. m4/3 and mirrorless in general means foremost getting rid of the mirror box, hence the name. This in turn allows more flexibility in the design and construction of camera bodies, with smallness as ONE possible design goal. Other goals could be to offer the best solution to utilize live view, such has in good view finders, video, form factors, whatever.

It happens that Panasonic made the GH3 larger, because so many users wanted this. A minority of the targeted buyers may not like this, so what? However, to call the GH3 being against THE m4/3 philosophy is nonsense, because there isn't such a thing.

The GH3 fits well into the system at the high end. It has a beautiful and functional design and is a welcome enhancement to the entire system, strengthening m4/3's market position considerably.
