Re: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 or G3 ??

Just a thought, but IQ will be basically the same so its down to shooting style and ergonomics. The GX1 is LCD only, no tilt or flip LCD. If you want an EVF you will need to buy the auxillary EVF (I have the GF1 and aux. EVF). There's little grip on the GX1, I added a leather case for a bit more grip. The controls may be a bit more ergonomic in some ways. The G3 has built in EVF and tilt LCD, more grip, maybe a bit more constrained controls space wise.

One is rangefinder styled snd possibility of big pocketability, one is hybrid DSLR/rangefinder styled and likely not pocketable at all.

Personal choice for me is G3 since I prefer the bult in EVF and tilt LCD and am able to configure as I want. YMMV.
