If I am correct in my belief that most people who decide to change from a DSLR to mirrorless prefer the smaller form factor (#1 above) then it is a problem for generating GH-3 sales.

IMHO one of the big strengths of M43 is that you can have a big, fully-featured ergonomic camera like the GH3 and a small, pocketable camera like the GF5 or one of the Pens and share lenses between them. No other system has that range of body styles and options.

Yes, small size is important - but that doesn't mean that every camera has to be small nor that larger models in the system will go unsold.

I couldn't agree more--I own a GH2 & E-M5.  However, the reason why we've been blessed with both formats is that, up until now, they have both sold well.  Thus, my point is simply that the continued viability of the GH line depends on GH-3 sales.  Hopefully, it will do well.
