GH3 'Massive' Disappointment


  • Too big

  • Too heavy?

  • No multi-aspect sensor


  • Ugly as sin

  • Looks like a mini-FF camera (more intimidating)

  • Lenses look too small on it


  • Very expensive?

I am sure there will be a lot of improvements, but the above issues really bug me. I really don't want a bigger, heavier, more expensive camera. I got MFT for the compact size and weight. I take the camera on active, multi-day trips, where every ounce is counted and shaved wherever possible, where every space is accounted for.

I was looking forward to the weather sealing, the improved image quality etc, but this just feels wrong to me Massively disappointing after a 3+ year wait.

Guess a second hand GH2 is on the cards for me.
