Buying advice G5, G6 or GH3
Aug 22, 2013

So I sold all my Canon gear and are looking at moving to Panasonic and micro four thirds. I do have a GF3 and 14 2.5 that I really like as a take anywhere camera. I am however a little bit undecided on whish way to go. Here are three options:

1. G5 + 12-35 + 35-100 roughly € 2600

2. G6 + 14-140 + 25 1,4 roughly € 1600

3. GH3 + 12-35 + 35-100 + Battery grip (free) Roughly € 3100

I can more or less afford all three with the money from my Canon sales so that is not a concern but I am mainly a still shooter, I know nothing about video. Therefore maybe the GH3 is a bit too much for me? But maybe wifi, wireless flash and a bit better IQ can be worth the difference from the G5 anyway? I really like the G6 too since it also has a lot of the newer features and is fairly priced with 14-140 kit but then I would have to switch to the 25 1,4 for low light stuff. Well, I understand that nobody can tell me what's best for me but any help or insight is appreciated.
