Not to offend everyone who's politely discussing this *camera*, but I can't believe how many a-holes are fighting like high school girls. I read all 268 comments because I'm interested in the GH3, and I barely made it through all the name calling and butt hurt ego tiffs.
Anyway, I'm excited to see what the image quality is like. Since this sensor is about the size of Sony's APS but has about half the MP of the a65/a77, there's a good chance the image will have a wider DR. I am split about 50/50 with photo and video, so both matter to me. The ability to record at a much higher bit rate is huge. I own an a65 and the video quality in decent lighting is just about equal to my consumer Canon HF-S200 camcorder. DSLR's give you a lot more control over DOF but you give up just about every useful feature in a camcorder. So, to me, bit rate is everything. I've graded/corrected footage with low bit rates and there's a huge difference in how much you can do witih the footage in post.
