It doesn’t have the (not first choice, but hey, it's there) Oly optical flash triggering. The GH3 does.

I suspect this is firmware, and I wonder whether Oly was willing to license it for the GH3 which is really without an Oly direct competitor at the moment but was not willing to license it for the G5 which is right there in the competitive mix with the OMD, the E-PL5, and (if it happens) the E-P5.

Just make the license fee such that it's economical to include in an expensive and small production number model and not in a low price large production one.
