Thanks for the work. I pray your calculations are off.

Maybe Panasonic plan to market this tank as a 4/3 camera. There's not much "micro" about it.

I fear it's creeping too close to APS-C cams in size and price, just like original 4/3 cams.

I hope those sweet lenses provide the DOF that videographers want. That may be the saving grace.

What are you talking about? Where did you find data, photos, or any other sources to compare?

BTW, I would not mind to have bigger controls and buttons anyway. GH2 is so cute that extra ounce would not make GH3 worse.
