So... I finally come to a decision to go with the OM-D... Is there any big hand users out there?

You shold stop worrying about the difference in still image quality between the OM-D and GH3. In the real world I see exhibition prints side by side that were made useing FF, APS-C & m4/3 and it would be impossible to successfully guess which camera was used on each print.

I'm not worries about the difference in image quality - I've sold my FF gear and moved to the OM-D for paid work....

I wanted smaller, the GH3 wasn't available and I used the OM-D for a couple of days and loved it.

So the choice is really about ergonomics, both cameras are totally different in their handling and appearance. Only you can pick the one that appeals to you and that you will enjoy using.

There is no doubt that the OM-D gives great image quality, but so many people have commented about its menu system and handling. The GH3 has the same great image quality, unbeatable video and few complaints about its handling or menu system.

I said that I thought the handling was fine - even with gloves - I also like the fact that I can change it by adding the 2 stage grip, I'm also fine with the menu system - but I don't understand why things like focus priority aren't in the AF option, once you've learnt them it's OK. The GH3 is a bulkier camera though and doesn't have IBIS - I don't mind having one larger one that uses the same lenses as long as the tracking AF is approaching SLR levels - if the much rumoured new Olympus camera does that then I have my 2 camera set up sorted for a while

Thanks... So I understand that no manner which 4/3 I select, it will be trailing behind all dslr's in the auto focusing/tracking category? The size of the camera doesn’t make much of a difference to me. I’m going more for the IQ. Options and affordability vs. DSLR with $2k glass. I sometimes wonder if I’m making a mistake turning away from the dslr’s. Even though I can’t- won’t spend $2k on a lense again, maybe I should consider lesser options. Canon 2.8 glass spoiled me Thank God I didn’t try out the 2.0!

Thanks again to all- for all of the advice and… Very interesting, sometimes amusing and… but enjoying it all.
