Thanks all for the comments. Anders, that's very helpful.
I could certainly improve my technique, thanks Bob for the link.

I don't care to take a tripod or monopod with me on a walk; although thinking about it the monopod could double up as a stick for one of my dogs to carry.

I felt the same way early on - until there were subjects I wanted to capture that required such accessories.

There seems to be no certain great advantage to the IBIS-so stick to the Panasonic and see what the GH3 has to offer.

I wouldn't say IBIS has no advantage, but it's no substitute for technique, rather it's an aid for when good technique calls for a bit of assistance. You may find you can use the assistance of IBIS once technique is refined - but you may find for what you commonly do it's not a requirement at all.
