Re: Size: GH3 vs. Pentax K-5_

Wow. This is what kept me from getting a Panasonic camera when they were first introduced. In my mind (especially at the time), the only benefit I saw was a smaller size. And while the first Pannys were smaller, they weren't that much smaller. Plus, the form factor of looking like a dSLR took away another advantage - stealth. When the first digital Pen came out, I got one mainly because it was smaller and it didn't look like a dSLR. This made it great for places that don't allow "professional cameras". I've been able to take my E-P1 to a lot of venues that don't allow SLRs.
