It's funny to think that for the price of GH3 ($1300) you can buy two E-PL5 cameras, and each of them will give comparable still photo image quality.

Plus, with each of E-PL5 you get IBIS, faster still frame rate, faster flash sync, focus peaking for stills, Olympus imaging engine, AutoWB that works well, etc.

And just possibly the worst ergonomics in a DSLR form factor camera, an awful menu system, virtually unusable exposure bracketing, no AF in the fastest burst rate, the Olympus imaging engine (which not everyone loves), etc.

No camera is perfect, including the fanboy favorite, the OM-D.

Anyway, it's too early to talk about GH3. The camera doesn't exist yet. It was delayed and it isn't shipping anywhere. Given Panasonic history of delayed product availability chances are that most people won't see GH3 until January when Olympus is rumored to announce its next semi-pro camera.

Just a thought.

Fanboy much? Maybe try just a wee bit of reality once in a while. Just a thought.
