Since the GH3 is very customizable, for many easy to use, I think he let his bias take over the review. It is pretty obvious.

For the record, I think the GH3 is much easier to hold and use than the E-M5 and even NEX7, but that is only an opinion too. I would say for anyone shooting stills only, go for the E-M5.

This is almost comical. It's OK for you to have a stated preference but not him? He loves the IQ, dislikes the ergonomics. Sorry, is he not allowed to talk of the GH3 in anything but hushed tones and glowing praise? You love to hold and use your GH3 in comparison to the E-M5...how is that any different than what he said?

Either you don't understand that my complaint is he is passing off his opinion as fact, or you missed where I said about my comments, "only an opinion too".

No, I'm pretty sure I got exactly what you said as you've just repeated it. Ming Thein is passing off his opinion as opinion, just as you are. He doesn't like the ergonomics of the camera. That is his main complaint, and it is his subjective opinion.

Again, he clearly has bias and his biggest complaints were subjective.

You don't say. And yes, he's biased: biased towards things he likes to use. And yes, his complaints were subjective. But aren't all opinions, you know, subjective? Or is he not allowed to have subjective complaints?

btw, I think this went over your head too. Even though I said my opinion was the GH3 was easier to hold, I recommended the Em5 based on facts (not opinion).

So, factually speaking, the EM-5 is a better camera? Sweet. I made the right choice then.
