Reading the review of the Panasonic GH3 stirred up these questions. The body plus lens is as big a small DSLR! The article compares the size to one of the Sony's, and the pictures of it look to make it almost the same size as a Canon Ti series camera. The price also makes you sit back and consider the merits even more. For that price you can get a full blown DSLR with good lens. So why would you settle for a smaller sensor size?

Sometimes I need a bigger body when I'm shooting an event or portraits with a flash or flash triggers in the hot shoe or using a large lens. Big flashes just don't handle well on smaller, tiny grip bodies like a PEN or GFx/GX1. Having larger bodies with fuller grips available means I can use the same lenses and other accessories on my "event camera" that I do on my walk around camera. I'd rather have one camera system than several.

flash bracket if you need to use a big flash.  It is better than shoe mounting anyway.

No need to make the camera gigantic!
