since i was 10 years old I owned many Cameras and SLRs all of them had one special characteristic they were black and Silver i had Olympus OM 1 , Minolta XD5, Canon New F1 and ultimately Nikon FM 2 . even russian breeds were welcome Kiev 10 ... i can Tell you the form factor and the feeling of the camera in your hand is particular with time your fingers will erode the paint or the metal in some places this is an intimate relation with your cam ... I still have my Nikon FM2 and i consider it as an esthetic masterpiece... actually seeing the latest trends in Fuji lines and others like pentax and olympus ( omd e 5 ) i can IMHO say they will set a new standard ...

Cy Cheze: Good to see Panasonic mindful of superstitions against the number four. Maybe the astrologers and psychics have counseled against announcing a GH3 any time soon. Better to wait until Venus and Jupiter are far apart and gone from the evening skies. It's also nice that HK actresses get the first hands-on experience with cameras and other matters.

and the same applied some years ago in regard to the canon enthusiast camera, after the G1 G2 and G3 they skipped and went to G5.... for the same reason ...

it is not superstition ... in japanese the " 4 " has the same pronunciation as the word death ( chi ) ... imagine a camera in UK or USA called G Death ...
