Re: Panasonic Lumix GH3. Looks are important

Thanks for your detailed first impressions.

You sound very positively impressed but not enthusiastic. A consequence of the looks?

No, I like the looks, only think the hump should be more pronounced like you said, the other good things on the camera makes me forget a bit about that, I like a camera that looks good to me, but the quality is more important.

I have been waiting for the GH3. How the stills quality compares with the OM-D will be seen in due course. However, the GH3 looks as ugly as Sony's FF models. I agree about the hump: it should be more pronounced by lower shoulders (no more overall height of the camera body) or, even better, removed altogether. Rangefinder look might not appeal to every one, but it is better than this hunchback of Notre Dame look of this GH3/Sony A99 monster.

Yes I really want to compare the GH3 quality with other cameras in a good full review.

If you compare the Leica M, Fuji X1(E), even Sony NEX and RX100 - they all show elegant, even beautiful tops, a jouy to look at. And it is the top, the photographer sees first and, if habitually using the EVF like I do, most often.


I also like all those cameras. someday I will have one Leica M, now I am saving for the GH3 and the rumored GX2 with a built in EVF, they said it will be launched before December.
