I have both GoPro 2 and GoPro 3 andthe GH3. Neither comes close to the GH3 with 35-100mm in sharpness and quality IMHO.

Just to be clear I am specifically referring to the GoPro 3 Black and not the other models. In addition the Protune has to be extensively graded in order to be comparable to the GH3 out of camera footage. However, the data is there.

In addition you must have proper lighting for the GoPro 3 footage. It is good up to only about ISO 400. Where the GH3 is good all the way through ISO 8000 and perhaps even more in the right light.

If you get into poor light with the GoPro 3 it will fall apart very quickly. I haven’t found a situation that the GH3 + 25mm F1.4 can’t handle exceptionally well.
