You may not like the way the G GH Panasonics "look" but the ergonomics and menu systems are are the lenses. Pretty is as pretty does !

They should just change the mount on the GH series to 4/3rds, after all the idea behind Micro 4/3rds was to reduce the size. We have some nice compact lenses, why on earth would you want to mount them on a body bigger than the average APS-C camera?

First of all, the GH cameras are not bigger than the average APS-C camera. They are, on average, smaller.

Secondly, if you change the mount from m43 to 43 then you increase the flange distance and this tends to result in bigger and heavier lenses.

Your argument can be turned on its head: why change the GH's mount to 43 when you can keep it at m43 and allow the use of smaller and lighter lenses?
