Isn't there a simple and inexpensive solution here - assuming it is possible to buy a USB 3.0 card reader.

Yes, but then why then have USB 2.0 or 1.1 in the camera? Why workarounds? The answer is that many user like to use the cameras USB port to download their images. It is easier than having to open the camera taking the memory card out, finding the reader, inserting the memory card etc.

Is it to much to expect from a camera like this that it's transfer rates are decent? Not just for now... but for the time and years to come. The years where the camera will be used to take 18.1 megapixel pictures and Full HD (1920 x 1080) video. A use where 5000 Mbps will be noticeable better than 480 Mbps?
I am not asking Panasonic to invent something new. I just would expect them to adopt a standard that is more than 4 years old.
