I think you missed one of the most important points when you said you would have stuck with your Canon as it's not that much larger or heavier than the GH3. What about lenses? If you add a kit of three Panasonic zoom lenses vs. comparative lenses of similar mm from Canon then what happens to the weight of your kit? I think you'll find the Canon kit coming in 30-50% heavier. That pretty much blows away the APS-C comparison if weight is a primary issue....and that's why I sold my D7000 and lenses.

I did pay lip service to lens size, but you're quite right.  My old 24-70L weighed as much by itself as my entire OM-D kit does now.  Still, the Panasonic body being almost as large as a DSLR (larger than some entry levels) would have been a showstopper for me.

In the end, if there's a market segment to be served by a larger m4/3 body, then good on Panasonic for filling it.
